We stopped out at Circle Pines Public Works this afternoon and found a worn out, but upbeat team that worked throughout the largest April snow storm in Minnesota history. The men and women that operate our local, county, and state plows deserve a huge amount of credit for keeping our roads clear so we can get to you in an emergency. We also acknowledge the hard work of the hundreds of private contractors that supplement their efforts. A special thank you goes to our teams from Centerville, Lexington, and Circle Pines. We know you worked dozens of hours of overtime this weekend. We see and appreciate you. Make no mistake, without your dedication and tireless work, we’d all be snowed in.
