Southern Baptist Convention to help with storm clean up

Published 6:00 am Saturday, March 13, 2021

Volunteers from the Southern Baptist Convention were back in Charlotte County Tuesday, March 9 assisting citizens with tree cleanup and will remain in the area until the end of the week.

Any citizen needing assistance with tree cutting on their property should contact the Charlotte County Administration Office before noon on Thursday, March 11 to add their property to the list. The administration office can be reached at (434) 542-5117 during normal business hours, Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Crews will be cutting trees and large wood debris into approximately six foot lengths and stacking them or placing them in a nearby location on the property as designated by the landowner.

Citizens are asked to make sure any wood debris collected is not disposed of in ditches along the road or in the VDOT right-of-way as this poses a danger to vehicular traffic and ditches need to remain clear to properly handle stormwater drainage.
