City of Bend Explains Snow Removal Priorities

Were you among the many Bendites cranky about the accumulation of snow and ice during our first snow of the season? Perhaps you wondered why the snow ploughs never made it down your street. Well, the City has responded via a video released its annual video explaining how it approaches snow removal, what methods it uses, and how it prioritizes which streets to hit first.

City Communications Director Justin Finestone clarified, explaining, "[The video] wasn’t really in response to last month’s snow storm. We produce the same video to run every December with a companion story in our utility bill newsletter."

Check out it and share your thoughts in the comments.
