Please have patience with our local snow removal efforts.

LaPrairie Residents,Please have patience with our local snow removal efforts.  Earlier in the week we had equipment breakdowns (ASV, Snowblower, Truck-all at once) which have now been repaired.  The City has contract with Itasca County to plow/sand/salt our streets but as you can imagine they are probably overwhelmed.  The main artery streets will be plowed as soon as possible and the less traveled side streets will be plowed as soon as possible thereafter.    City Sidewalks will also be cleared as soon as we are able.   Please assist all of us with snow removal around fire hydrants.   Plea
