Another Local Municipality is Offering Sandbags
The Town of LaSalle is the latest municipality to offer sandbags to its residents.
Empty sandbags and sand can be picked up at the Public Works Building (2170 Judy Recker Cres.) near the Vollmer Centre from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.
The town says residents must show proof of residency to receive sandbags along with bringing their own shovels to fill the bags.
So far, only a few residents have taken advantage of the free sandbags.
LaSalle continues to monitor water levels in the area with the Essex Region Conservation Authority and says lake levels are not expected to recede in the near future.
Tecumseh, Lakeshore, Leamington, Essex, Amherstburg and Windsor are other area municipalities that are also offering sand bags.
