(La Porte, IN) - La Porte's downtown will be reclaiming its sidewalks beginning tomorrow. With all the snow accumulation recently, walls of the white stuff have piled up outside local storefronts. City leaders have hired a contractor to push snow from the sidewalks into Lincolnway. The city will then take the snow away.
La Porte Mayor Tom Dermody is asking the public not to park on Lincolnway Sunday evening so snow removal can take place. Dermody stated, “[We’ll be] pushing snow and cleaning it up, so Monday will have most of the snow gone. What we are asking from a Police perspective is after 5:00 on Sunday, do not park on Lincolnway so we can get through all this snow”.
The work is a team effort between the City of La Porte and members of the downtown business district.
