Yes! Prior to an anticipated rain event, on a first come-first serve basis, Public Works will have empty sandbags and sand available for residents of the incorporated area of the City of La Mesa with valid La Mesa ID. Limit of 10 bags with sand per residence. The sandbags are available at the Public Works Yard (8152 Commercial Street) in the front office during normal business hours (M-Th 6:00am to 3:30pm and alternating Fridays from 6:00am – 2:30pm). Once a resident retrieves the bags, sand is available for self-service in the shed west of the fuel pumps outside the fence. Shovels may be available, but please plan to bring your own.
