In light of yesterday’s storms, which caused a Union Pacific train to derail in the Marana area, and continued forecasts of rain through the week, the Town of Marana has decided to add this Friday, Friday, July 13 as an additional day for sandbag distributions. Residents can collect sandbags from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Sandbag distributions will be located at El Rio Open Space (10050 N. Coachline Blvd) and Marana Heritage River Park (12280 N. Heritage Park Drive). Public works staff will load pre-filled sandbags into the vehicle. Limit of 10 sandbags per vehicle.
In the event of increased weather, additional distribution dates will be added to the schedule. For more information, contact public works at 382-2536 or follow the Town of Marana on Facebook and Twitter.
