Impacts From The Recent Rain Storm

February 22, 2017 

Last Friday's heavy rains resulted in downed trees, mudslides, minor flooding, and an airport runway closure. City emergency crews responded to incidents throughout the storm, and continue to focus on debris clean-up and repairs of damage to streets and sidewalks. Please remember that while the creeks are full, it is not safe to go in the water. The water flow comes from the watershed in the mountains and is full of bacteria that can cause illness. Be safe and stay out of the water.
