So are they going to be in front of the Vets in the frontier days parade like few years back??? I can say this I was pissed that our Vets are more important then bike riders

The middle school has a "prairie area" that is an excuse to not mow all of the land they used to build the school. Will the school honor the idea of a "prairie area" or will they mow it down again so the riders can camp there? Seems they mow it when this bike ride comes to town but other than that, just let the weed grow.

Yay! So exciting!

Would like to be a part of this, this is so great for Fort Dodge.

Very exciting love it when they stay overnight . 😊

Good now we can do things to the roads that never get done like fill all the cracks and potholes that never get done until they come here!!

Gonna be a fun ride this will be my5th year

Thanks to everyone at Public Works and Forestry for their hard work and all the extra hours this past week!The view of a freshly fallen snow in the backyard, from the cozy warm comfort of the living room, cup of hot cocoa in hand, can be quite idyllic.

Then it's time to look beyond the yard and consider the street or road. ow.ly/TwXK50y37iU

No Now I have to dig out my driveway thanks to the plow driver.....One driveway in the whole block and he can not TURN THE BLADE????????

No one understands the stress and difficulty when it comes to snow removal for a community. Much more than someone just sitting in a truck. Great job to the personnel providing this service.

I think you guys have done a wonderful job! Thank you.

Be happy they at least plow your street because if they didn't then everyone would be complaining about that. I'd rather have to scoop out the end of my driveway then have to do a whole street like where I live. My husband had to go buy a plow just so he could plow our street and if we're lucky they might plow the hill in front of my house but long after everything else has been plowed. But I'm still thankful that they even did come through. It's better than not at all! Thank you to all the people who do plow the streets, all the emergency crews, and all the guys I have to go out and deal with power outages. I thank you!

Would be nice if they would have plowed the secondary roads today. our roads are a mess! I definitely appreciate all the work/hours they put in just wondering if whoever manages that program could get it done.

Is it my understanding that the wing plow, can direct the plowed snow, so as not to cause it to be piled up at the end of a drive?

I plowed snow for 30 years and something I noticed the first year is that people are not happy no matter what you do ! I have seen hydraulic end caps on graders but to do every drive or approach would be very timely and expensive! To put a maintainer on every route with a hydraulic end cap you are talking hundreds of thousands dollars and to fit a end cap is over 25 thousand. I think we need to keep everything in perspective because of cost . I know at times our roads are not the best shape but when I started for the State salt was under 15 dollars a ton and last I seen salt is over 40 dollars a ton. I guess what I am trying to get across is you can have your cake but not eat it. Thank you City operator’s for your work. Everybody has to remember that some people would complain if they were hung with a brand new rope ! This is my thoughts on this subject
