FAIRFIELD — The city is offering sandbags and telling residents to prepare for the worst as large storms prepare to hit the area.

The storms are expected to start Wednesday and continue through the weekend. The city of Fairfield is urging residents and business owners to act before problems occur.

Bags are available from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Fairfield Public Works Corporation Yard at 420 Gregory St. There is a limit of 10 bags per resident or business.

Sand will be available at the corner of Pittman and Cordelia roads, as well as the corner of Allan Witt Park at Woolner Avenue. These stations are self serve.

Residents are also being instructed to collect and dispose of all debris near drain pipes or openings. That includes picking up plastic bags, tree branches, leaves or other items that can create blockage.

Public Works maintenance crews respond to flood calls, however during heavy rains, the response may be delayed. To report local flooding, contact the Public Works Operations Division from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Thursday at 428-7407. For Fridays, weekends and after hours, report flooding to police dispatch at 428-7300.

    The big issue for flooding is the leaves. It's too hard for some people to pick them up, so they just push them off their lawn into the gutter. They expect the city or someone else to take care of the leaves for them.

    We were spolied here for years because the city did take care of that. It would be helpful and theraputic for folks to rake them up. A block party and BBQ would be an excellent way to handle that!

    What city did that. Fairfield ran their vacuum truck once a year down the street to get some of them and the street sweeper would come and spread them around but I don't remember the city of Fairfield ever actually picking up the leaves. Well at least not in the older parts of town.

    Yep~ before the garbage company took over the contract it was the city sweeper. He would come every week but seemed like he blew more leaves on the sidewalk than he actually picked up.
