Two men argue over snow; one cited

A Cottage Grove man received a police citation for his involvement in a neighbor dispute over snow.

According to Cottage Grove police, an officer was called Sunday afternoon to the 8300 block of Isle Avenue, where two neighbors were arguing over where snow was being thrown by a snowblower.

Duane R. Grunwald, 55, was cited for disorderly conduct for allegedly yelling and swearing at another man before the officer arrived, according to a police report. The citation was a misdemeanor.

Another dispute over plowed snow took place in a different neighborhood Tuesday, police said.

A resident in the 6700 block of Meadowgrass Lane was upset with how a contract plow driver was plowing snow in the neighborhood. The resident and the plow driver, both adult males, got into a verbal dispute, but there were no arrests.
