Guillermo Perez, an East Wenatchee contractor with Strong Wall Landscape, dumps a pile of snow in a trailer while clearing out built up of snow at the corner of Commercial and 8th streets, Saturday afternoon in Leavenworth. 

LEAVENWORTH — More than 20 National Guard members were expected to be helping with snowstorm cleanup and aid early this week in Leavenworth.

Leavenworth Mayor Carl Florea declared a state of emergency last week following a record amount of snow and asked for National Guard help.

A total of 23 National Guard troops will help with checking on the welfare of residents, food distribution and shoveling and moving snow that is in the public right-of-way.

The National Guard will not be clearing snow from roofs.

The city is continuing with 24-hour snow removal, with the help of some community members.

City residents in need of help with snow removal, food or just a welfare check, are encouraged to fill out a request form, available at bit.ly/3K1cW46.
