Volunteers Continue with Cleanup in Hazelwood
By Pat Lindsey
Last Thursday, on the day after an EF2 tornado ripped through Hazelwood and Florissant with winds of 110 mph, the air in the hardest hit areas smelled like Christmas, but no one was celebrating. A massive cleanup had begun on Holiday Avenue., Lynn Haven Lane, and surrounding streets, and tree trimming crews were removing the largest pines that had caused so much of the damage. While much has been removed, the work continues this week.
Florissant Police Chief Timothy J. Lowery has announced that the Police Department has a new tool to promote the D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program to the youth of Florissant.
The Florissant Police Department acquired a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro as an asset forfeiture through a narcotics investigation that a Florissant Police Officer was involved in with the Drug Enforcement Administration.
