The National Emergency Grant (NEG) program is clearing tree debris from streams, parks, and roadways in Logan County and started full time operations in mid-January. After working each day they transport logs and tree limbs to a storage area at their headquarters at the Armory in Bellefontaine.
Starting Friday, February 8th at noon, NEG personnel will make logs and wood debris available to the public at no expense.
Logs and wood debris will be located inside the fence of the Logan County Fairgrounds next to the Armory. You’re asked to enter the fairgrounds from the Lake Avenue entrance. You’re responsible for loading your own vehicle. However, NEG personnel will be at the site to supervise loading and may be able to assist loading dump trucks and trailers.
The site will be open between noon and 3:00 p.m. each Friday as long as the wood supply lasts. Each driver entering the fairgrounds to load wood must sign a release form to have access to the wood. Logs will be available on a first come first served basis and only available on Friday afternoons. No chainsaws may be used to cut or trim wood at the loading site or anywhere else on the fairgrounds property.
