Permits are now available to people looking to earn a little extra cash this winter, by helping chain up commercial vehicles. This year in Union County this year, the Oregon Department of Transportation District 13 office in La Grande will issue three permits for the I-84 Ladd Canyon area in Union County. The number of permits is limited to cut back on the number of people on the side of the interstate at any one time. If you are interested, contact the ODOT district office by October 31.
