Hats off to Cottage Grove Public Works staff

Our city’s Public Works Department without a doubt is one of the best in the state. Those people are the unsung heroes of Cottage Grove.

The old saying “We can’t be everywhere” doesn’t apply to them. They are everywhere when it snows, storms or just on a normal day. I just can’t say enough about them.

It’s a well-oiled machine and very organized. I don’t care what time of day or night it is, those fellows are out in the worst — plowing, cutting or inspecting.

Sure, you can say it’s their job, but they take a lot of pride in what they do. These people care, whether it’s the people in the office, the people in the shops or people out in the community.

This winter has been extremely gruesome so far, but our streets and roads are always as clean as possible thanks to this fine team.
