City of Columbus continues clean up after storm

City of Columbus is continuing to clean up after the severe storm blew through on Monday morning. 
Utility and Public Works Crews are continuing cleanup operations.
As of this morning, an estimated 300-350 customers remain without power. According to We Energies there are 844 customers still without power throughout the state. 
The Columbus Water and Light Utility crew worked until dusk yesterday to repair widespread damage to the electric grid and plan on another long day.  
With the aid of eleven neighboring utility crews, work will continue to restore power to customers affected by the storm.  
The Columbus Recycling Center on River Road is open for anyone wishing to take their downed trees and branches.  The center will be open 7 AM.  For those who are unable to take their debris to the Recycling Center, the Department of Public Works will be coming through the city to collect anything left on the tree border and front of homes.  There will be no cost for this service.
Red Cross continues to operate an emergency shelter at the Columbus Middle School, at 400 S. Dickason Boulevard.
For lower income households, the State Wisconsin offers possible assistance through the Emergency Assistance Program.  The qualifications are that you are a homeowner and your household income falls below 80% of the median income level for Columbia County (which is currently $46,338).
