The Town of Kaplan will have sand and sandbags available Friday at the city yard on 412 S. Herpin.

The location is for residents within the city limits of Kaplan.

Mayor Mike Kloesel says that the yard will be closed over the weekend so those who want sand bags will need to get them by 4:00 pm on Friday June 5, 2020.

Proof of address or driver's license is required at pickup.

Mayor Kloesel says that the town will deliver sandbags to the elderly and handicapped between the hours of 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. Friday afternoon. Those residents are asked to call city hall to set up delivery. Calls must be in before 1:00 p.m. to guarantee delivery.

"Remember, if you don't qualify for this service and use it, you are taking away from someone else that truly needs it," Kloesel said in a Facebook post.
