La Grande received snow heavy with water Sunday night, making travel and snow removal difficult. With the weather expected to continue, La Grande Public Works crews are plowing all sides of town using “all of the manpower and equipment we have available,” according to an email from Public Works Director Norm Paullus. They are concentrating first on bus routes, ambulance routes and steeper hillside roads.
Flooding is a concern as snow melts. With current conditions, crews may not have time to pick up all the snow and remove it before it melts.
