MANITOWOC COUNTY RURAL STORM DAMAGE
The “Rural Storm Damage Cleanup” scheduled for Saturday, May 20th has been postponed due to inclement weather. The cleanup has been rescheduled for Tuesday, May 23rd at 9:00 a.m. Those interested in assisting with the cleanup must register and obtain a permit to be displayed at all times. Registration will be at the Liberty Town Hall, 13812 English Lake Road, Valders. All volunteers should dress with safety in mind wearing heavy full-length pants, sturdy work boots, and heavy leather gloves. Bring a bag lunch and water. If possible, each crew should have one cell phone for emergencies.
After registering, the volunteers will form crews and receive instructions. All volunteers are urged to be extra careful with the sharp steel and debris they will encounter. Crews will be dispatched and are asked to use their own transportation to the assigned sections. At those locations, there will be hay racks and farm tractors to move the debris from the fields to the road right-of-way where it will be unloaded as required and then picked up later by Manitowoc County Highway crews.
Land owners with debris in their fields should call either the Manitowoc County UW-Extension Office at 683-4170 or the Manitowoc County Soil & Water Department at 683-4183 to indicate whether they want assistance with cleanup. Please call one of the numbers listed above if you have questions.
People wishing to volunteer equipment are asked to contact the Extension Office by Monday, May 22nd at noon. After assignments are completed, individuals will be asked to drop equipment off at the proper location Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning by 9:00 a.m. Please do not bring wagons or tractors to the volunteer registration area.
Volunteers with questions may call the Manitowoc County UW-Extension Office at 920-683-4170 or the Manitowoc County Soil & Water Department at 920-683-4183 for additional information.
