Mayor Craig A. Moe is advising residents that due to the heavy rain fall in the City of Laurel over the past few days, some areas of the City are dealing with flooding conditions and are experiencing power outages today, June 3, 2018.

 Residents and business throughout the City should prepare now for possible additional flooding.

 It’s important to make sure that stored material around their property is not creating areas that will flood.

Areas in the south side of the City lost power Sunday morning and some traffic lights were out.  The Department of   Public Works put stop signs at affected intersections. Mayor Moe has directed DPW to clear drains and waterways, check for downed trees, and check other areas in the City for any hazards.

The Office of the Fire Marshal has been directed to check properties for any code violations, especially those that will cause flooding or ponding of water.  These violations must be taken care of as quickly as possible.

The Department of Parks and Recreation is checking City buildings and property for possible flooding or damage due to the heavy rainfall.

The City will continue to be proactive as we deal with this extreme weather to make sure residents and business owners are protected.
