2019 August Newsletter

The next City Council meeting will be on Wednesday, August 14th, 2019 at 6:15pm at City Hall.

Building Permits – If you need a building permit, please stop in City Hall and get an application. These are approved at a Council meeting and the deadline to be on the agenda for the August meeting is August 7th! Please don’t start construction until you have the permit approved by the Council.

Excessive Flow Valves for Gas: Effective February 1999 Gas Utilities are required to give residents the information that is on the back of this page regarding Excessive Flow Valves. If you have questions, please contact City Hall 507-945-8127.

Lawns and Weeds – The weather has been unique this year, but the weeds seem to thrive regardless. Please take a few minutes to look at your lawn and remove any tall weeds that are unsightly and remember to pick up any garbage laying in your yard BEFORE mowing, it makes such a mess if you don’t! Please mow lawns regularly, a phone call from City Hall shouldn’t be your reminder. Grass grows, mow it at least once a week to avoid the dreaded phone call! I would appreciate it!

Dog License – If you STILL haven’t gotten your 2019 Dog License, you are required to have each dog in your house licensed according to the City Ordinance. Reminder that ALL dogs are to be on either a leash or a chain when outside. AT ALL TIMES! There have been many reports of dogs running loose. If you see a dog running loose, please call the Nobles County Sheriff’s office at 507-295-5400. And remember that 5 minutes of barking is considered a nuisance and should be avoided. Let’s all try to be good neighbors!
