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.   Please help mail delivery with shoveling entry and around mailboxes.  Please remember to check on friends &  neighbors if you see no activity at their home.  The snow is heavy and cold air is arriving so don't overdue it.  Snowmobilers-please stay on designated routes following all local, county and state regulations.  Our ice rink will be cleared as soon as other priority items are tended too.   If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact City Hall.  Wishing you all a Happy & Safe New Year!   When all the work is done-enjoy the beauty of our community.  Vic Moen, Mayor
