The Cottonwood City Crew put out sandbags Saturday evening along Main Street as a preventative measure in case we got the predicted heavy rain on Sunday. Fortunately they werenít as heavy as predicted and Cottonwood Creek did not overflow this time. The city also made use of some concrete barricades that were surplused by ITD to help direct any possible flood waters. Police Chief Terry Cochran said itís great when a plan works.
