Pullman officers have been busy today, responding to a high number of accidents related to our adverse road conditions. City crews are working as quickly as po...ssible to improve driving conditions throughout the community, but as snow continues to fall over the region, this will be an ongoing effort. Drivers are encouraged to avoid traveling until roadways improve. If possible, please, stay home and stay safe.
While you are bundled up inside, avoiding this awesome winter weather, take a moment to visit the Pullman 2040 website. There you will find great information on the groups mission, projects, and ways you can get involved!
Pullman - our community, our future....
We’re sure you aren’t surprised to hear that the weather this weekend is all over the board. Wind, rain, snow, warming and then extreme cold are all predicted to impact us over the course of the next three days.
As we do throughout the winter months, crews will be working both mornings and evenings on all weekend days, there is also on-call staff available to address any issues that may arise outside of scheduled coverage. Crews will work to ensure any weather related impacts to routes through town are appropriately addresses.
Just a friendly reminder that City of Pullman administrative offices will be closed Monday in observance of President's Day. If you have business to do at City Hall, come see us before 5 today! We will return, ready to serve you on Tuesday, 2/20.
We need your help!
The Pullman Arts Commission reviewed 34 art pieces submitted for consideration for the local utility box wrap project. The commission has narrowed these submissions to five and would like the community's input in selecting a winning piece! Members of the public may vote for their favorite by visiting the Pullman Arts Commission on Facebook (link below), or in person at Neill Public Library. You may vote through February 28th.
We love our community and each of the amazing people, places, and characteristics that make Pullman so special. We thank Pullman 2040 for capturing the many pieces that come together to make our City great, and for sharing them with the world in this incredible video. We really are #PullmanProud!
This gorgeous sunshine might not last for long, but we’ll enjoy it while it does!
Following yesterday’s snow event we would like to take the opportunity to let you know what our maintenance crews have been able to accomplish.
All roadways, including alleys were able to be plowed at least once during or after the snowfall! Some residential streets may still have areas of compacted snow, please use caution when traveling on snow covered roads.
While we await additional snowfal...l, and it appears it is coming, we are working to widen cul-de-sacs throughout the city.

We wish it were April Fools' Day and this talk of an incoming snow storm were a (bad) joke, but so far it appears we may see not only snow, but the potential for some significant accumulation.
Thankfully our crews haven't put their snow boots, or plows away for the year! We will be monitoring impacts from the incoming weather and respond accordingly. Please remember when driving during inclement weather, adjusting driving for conditions, increasing following distance, and di...tching the distractions are a great plan!
Congratulations to Mayor Glenn Johnson! #PullmanProud
Washington Governor Jay Inslee tapping WSU professor emeritus and Mayor of Pullman Glenn Johnson to serve on the Community Colleges of Spokane Board of Trustees....
The "Voice of the Cougs" earned an Associate of Arts degree from Modesto Junior College in California, and eventually earned his Ph.D. in mass communications from the University of Iowa.
In a press release, Johnson says "I look back at my community college education and my AA degree as the foundation to whatever success I have found in life."
Ready or not, it seems that more snow could be headed our way! While we know that weather on the Palouse can be unpredictable, and forecasts can change quickly, we remind drivers to please take care as lower temperatures and precipitation may impact travel.
