City gravel trucks running around the clock with storm

Release Date: 
11/14/2014

The City of Pendleton understands that winter storms can create challenges for drivers on our local roads. Our Public Works Department has been running three trucks since the snow started to fall on Thursday morning. They are scheduled to run trucks around the clock through Sunday (at this time).

It takes about four hours to complete the full route around the city with all of the trucks putting down gravel. They are also dispatched for gravel trucks to assist with accidents.

Thanks to the City of Pendleton’s Public Works crews for helping keep us safe during these dicey road conditions!

Wood Stove Replacement Program

Release Date: 
08/27/2013

Are you concerned about the amount of smog that occurs in the City in the wintertime? Wood burning is one of the main contributors to this problem.

To encourage the replacement of older, inefficient wood stoves, the City has developed a zero interest loan program for replacing your wood burning stove with a newer, more energy efficient heating system. By converting to a new heating system you will not only increase fuel efficiency (i.e. SAVE YOU MONEY), but you will also improve the air quality of our great city.

Stay tuned for another article coming soon regarding renewed funding for this program. In the meantime, click here to learn more about this program from Public Works.

Gas tax sunsets

On March 7, 2013, letters were hand-delivered to gas station managers and mailed to gas station owners. Final payment from gas stations were due on or before March 25, 2013.
