City gravel trucks running around the clock with storm

Release Date: 

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!

Halloween Carnival

Release Date: 

Another Successful Halloween Carnival!

Over 1,000 individuals attended the Halloween Carnival at the Pendleton Convention Center where bingo, refreshments, a Halloween movie and so many fun carnival booths awaited them.  There were many wonderful and creative costumes, with many adults getting into the spirit just as much as their children.  

The annual carnival is a great, safe, and climate controlled, way for families to enjoy the holiday.  Thanks to all the sponsors and the almost 100 volunteers who helped make the carnival a huge success!  It is not only a great event to participate in but a wonderful opportunity to connect with the community.
