The Deschutes County Commissioners just approved a new plan that shows how the county figures out how to use its limited equipment and personnel when snow falls.

 

The head of the Roads Department, Chris Doty explains how they go about it.

 

"We've divided the county into 16 snow zones and we dispatch equipment and personnel around the urban areas -- mainly in the Bend, Redmond, Sisters and LaPine areas.  We get arterials opened up in the communities and between the communities."

 

The cities plow the roads within the city limits and the county handles the rest -- about 900 miles of roadway.

 

To view the plan,  go to county's website and click on the roads department to find the snow and ice removal plan.
