Downtown Redmond Shuts Down Overnight For Snow Removal

REDMOND, OR -- Redmond city officials took extreme steps overnight to remove the four-foot high piles of snow from a stretch of downtown.  Mayor George Endicott says crews shut down four blocks of sixth street from 6 p.m. until 5:30 this morning, and hauled away 45 truck-loads of snow.  "The idea was try and smooth out the rough road, clear the sidewalks and clear the parking spots, to open that up in anticipation of the holiday season." 

 

Endicott says it’s the first time they’ve taken such measures, and calls the effort a success.
