Wattle Station Closing; Flood Assistance and Information Center Open

(Aug. 6, 2010 - 1:28 p.m.) The wattle pick-up station located north of the Silver Saddle Store (Silver Saddle Road and N. Hwy. 89) will close today at 3:00 p.m. due to a decreased demand for them in the Timberline, Fernwood and Doney Park areas. The station may re-open if there is a future demand for wattles.

The resident information boards located at Silver Saddle Store and Summit Fire Station #32 will be removed today and any new information regarding the Schultz area flooding will be provided to the Flood Assistance and Information Center located at 7121 N. Hwy. 89 (just south of the former Coffee Beanery, in the former Eye Works building).

The center offers services to residents who have been affected by the recent flooding in these areas. Center staff will continue to help connect flood victims with social services, volunteer agencies, and resources in a one-stop location. These services range from assistance with home repairs, to financial advice, to counseling services to deal with the tragedy and loss they may have experienced.

The center’s goal is to provide information and referral services to the residents so they can begin the recovery process and regain stability in their lives. While the center may not have immediate answers or solutions, or all the requested resources, the agency representatives will do their best to find appropriate answers and to link community members with available resources.

The Schultz Fire/Flood call center (1-877-679-8390) will continue to serve as a point of access to flood information and services, and the FAIC will serve as a walk-in center.

Information and referrals will be shared between the call center and the FAIC to best meet community needs.
