Police chief Gary Kalstabakken said between noon Sunday and 3 p.m Monday police responded to eight weather related accidents. Officers also responded to 15 motorist assists for people who ended up in the ditch.

"Lots of people were out, whether they needed to be or not," said Kalstabakken.

With snow piled high again, Kalstabakken said motorist should be careful especially when coming up on intersections.

The large snowfall had plow crews busy as well. Public works director Andy Brotzler said crews plowed three times over the two-day snowfall. Brotzler said crews worked hard to keep roads clean.

This has been a busy winter for plowing. Brotzler said overall the crews and equipment have held up well through it.

The city did have a snowblower break down. Brotzler said Dakota County donated the use of one its snowblowers to the city while the item was being repaired.
