Clean-up Companies Say It's OK to Return

After expanding the perimeter around the Pro-Serve plant on Brooks and Third Saturday emergency crews told us Sunday they decreased the perimeter to just Brooks Road from Gemini to Graves.

People who live and work around the area and want more information about the site clean-up and safety can call 483-4777.
