Storm Damage from May 29, 2018 storm
The City has declared this event to be a storm for forestry purposes.
Significant wind accompanied the storm on the afternoon of Tuesday, May 29, 2018. There were a number of tree limbs and branches that broke off as a result of high winds.
Residents are encouraged to report any potentially hazardous conditions in boulevard trees located along their street.
Residents must contact the City to have any brush from storm-damaged trees removed. Residents must call the City at (320) 234-4219 to report the address where the brush is placed.
Brush must be placed at the edge of the street, behind the curb, on the boulevard. Brush not placed adjacent to the edge of the roadway will not be removed by the City. The City does not pick up brush, unless it is a result of storm damage.
Residents are also encouraged to clean debris from storm water drains near their property. This will help to avoid localized flooding issues, should additional rainfall occur before everything is cleaned up.
During the period May 30 to June 8, 2018, the City will be hauling and/or chipping brush from damaged limbs and branches. After the deadline of June 8, the City will no longer respond to calls for brush removal. After June 8, property owners will be responsible for removing their own brush.
