Public Works News and Information:

  • Snow Removal: Have you seen our new Snow Removal Progress App?
  • Road Closures: For updated road closure information, check out our Road Closures Map.
  • To report a pothole, request alley maintenance, or request a street sweeper, please use the 'Report a Concern' button below or call Operations at (712) 328-4641.
  • No Wipes in the Pipes: Please only flush toilet paper! Non-flushable items clog the sewer lines. Even if the package states 'flushable,' it can still clog the sewer lines. Unclogging pipes is costly and time-consuming. If it is not toilet paper, put it in the garbage!
