  • County Opens Four Sandbag Locations in Preparation for Possible Heavy Rainfall

    County Opens Four Sandbag Locations in Preparation for Possible Heavy Rainfall

    County Opens Four Sandbag Locations in Preparation of Possible Heavy Rainfall

    Due to the potential for flash floods from forecasted heavy rainfall, Leon County will open four sandbag locations for residents. Emergency Management officials will continue to monitor changing conditions throughout the week and into the weekend.

    Beginning Wednesday, August 1 at noon, sandbags are available to the public at the following Leon County locations:

    • Tekesta Park, at Tekesta Drive and Deer Lake Road in Killearn Lakes
    • Apalachee Regional Park (Solid Waste Management Facility), 7550 Apalachee Parkway
    • Lee Vause, 6024 Old Bainbridge Road
    • At the intersection of Oak Ridge Rd at Ranchero Rd

    Leon County will staff these sites and residents should bring their own shovels. Sand, bags and ties will be available for public use. Residents are asked to take no more than 15 bags so as to allow others to prepare.

    Property owners who have experienced flooding problems in the past can use sandbags to help divert stormwater from their property.

    Leon County advises residents to monitor the latest forecasts and be prepared to take the necessary precautions to protect life and property. The National Weather Service also warns that residents should not drive cars through flooded areas and that if they see flood waters to turn around and find another route.

    Residents are also encouraged not to attempt to walk through floodwaters. Any and all flood water should be considered to be contaminated. Do not allow children to play in, wade through or swim in flood water.

    Updates on official road closures can be found by downloading the Leon County Citizens Connect App in the Apple or Google Play store and the Leon County Emergency Information Portal (EIP) at www.LeonCountyFL.gov/ei/. Read more

  • Leon County and Holland & Knight Accepting Nominations for Community Heroes

    Leon County and Holland & Knight Accepting Nominations for Community Heroes

    Leon County and Holland & Knight Accepting Nominations

    for Community Heroes

    Nominations now open for Glenn J. Winuk Humanitarian Service Award

    Leon County Government and the Holland & Knight law firm are now accepting applications for the Glenn J. Winuk Humanitarian Service Award. The award recognizes community members who exemplify extraordinary service and sacrifice for others. Nominations are now open and due by Wednesday, August 29 at 5 p.m.

    Holland & Knight will make a donation of $1,000 to the charity selected by the winner. The winner will be announced in September 2018.

    This humanitarian service award honors those who render sacrificial service for the benefit of others, just as Glenn J. Winuk did during the attacks on September 11, 2001.  Holland & Knight created the award in 2012 to honor its former Partner Glenn J. Winuk, a New York-based attorney and volunteer firefighter and EMT who was killed on 9/11 in the collapse of the World Trade Center. After helping to evacuate Holland & Knight’s New York City office, located just two blocks from the towers, Glenn entered the South Tower with a borrowed medical bag to render medical assistance. He died when the South Tower collapsed. He was posthumously awarded the 9/11 Heroes Medal of Valor by President Obama and the Department of Justice.

    Leon County and the Holland & Knight law firm present the award to those who have performed both one-time heroic acts as well as years of service. Previous winners have been recognized for their service to Honor Flight Tallahassee, direct human services, and veterans causes.

    To nominate someone for the 2018 Glenn J. Winuk Humanitarian Service Award, visit: http://www.LeonCountyFL.gov/Winuk.

    For more information, contact Mathieu Cavell, Community and Media Relations, at (850) 606-5300 or cmr@LeonCountyFL.gov .
