Your support for independent local news is important.

The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

City of Bend Explains Snow Removal Priorities

Posted By on Mon, Dec 8, 2014 at 10:31 AM

Were you among the many Bendites cranky about the accumulation of snow and ice during our first snow of the season? Perhaps you wondered why the snow ploughs never made it down your street. Well, the City has responded via a video released its annual video explaining how it approaches snow removal, what methods it uses, and how it prioritizes which streets to hit first.

Check out it and share your thoughts in the comments.
