Hazen starts work on the big ‘if’

Sandbagging is on the minds of city officials in the next few weeks, along with the imminent flood that might show up this month in Hazen and the surrounding area. City officials met March 2 for an informal meeting to discuss the necessary procedures and precautions to take before a flood occurs.

Volunteers will once again be asked to assist with filling sandbags at the Hazen City Shop. Commissioner Mike Peterson said 5,000 bags were filled last year but only 2,500 will be filled this year for the city and the public’s use.
