  • West Broadway: Construction is complete on the West Broadway Reconstruction Project. The Asphalt Paving Association of Iowa presented Public Works with the 2021 Perpetual Paving Award in recognition of this project. Learn more at
  • 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!
