City makes sandbag materials available

Minot residents who are interested in filling sandbags for their personal use may do so at the City of Minot Public Works Building.

Although no significant flooding is expected at this time, residents who want sandbags to protect against local runoff may fill up to 25 bags per person per trip. If more than 25 are needed, residents may return to collect additional bags. Bags are available between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the Office of Public Works, 1025-31st St. SE.

Residents are asked to bring their own shovels to fill bags.
