ST. CLOUD - St. Cloud will have the compost site open both today (Saturday) and tomorrow (Sunday).

The St. Cloud city parks department and water utilities have begun cleaning-up from last (Friday) night's storm.  Their priorities are to clear the roads and boulevards first.  Mayor Dave Kleis is asking residents to help with the clean-up by removing debris from storm drains.

The city has opened it's compost site today and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. It's located east of County Road 75 on 33rd Street South.  Permits will not be required of city residents.  You can also bring your storm damaged trees to the parking lot of Wilson School on 12th Street and 9th Avenue North, and the old runway at Whitney Park.  Access to that location can be made from Colony Circle.

A reminder that removing storm damaged trees can be very dangerous.  Please use caution when cutting down trees, or contact a professional.  However, make sure you asked to see their license and check to be sure they are bonded to do the work.
