MAP: Mendota Heights Crews in Week 2 of Cleanup

An updated map shows where city crews have picked up storm debris.

It's been 17 days since straight line winds and took out power in many Mendota Heights neighborhoods.

City crews have been working to clear curbs of storm debris gathered by residents.

An updated map released by the city Thursday morning indicates how much progress they've made. Everything south of Highway 110 has been cleared. Crews are now working approximately north to south and focusing on the hardest hit neighborhoods.

The city brought in contractors over the weekend to remove some of the largest trees damaged along major roads including Lexington Avenue.

Any debris that has been brought to the curb after the city crews' sweep will not be picked up, but can be brought to for drop off. 

"The credit goes to the public works crews, and the night of the event especially to the police and fire departments for making the city safe as well," said City Administrator Justin Miller at Tuesday night's city council meeting.

A special session is anticipated at the State Capitol following the , according to Mendota Heights legislators. It's possible that Dakota County could receive funding to address storm damage as well.

"We want to try to work with the local units of government as much as possible on the local infrastructure costs," said Rep. Rick Hansen (D-South St. Paul) last week.
