Statement on possible flash flooding
Posted on 02/19/2019
Public Works Director Robert Knecht:

Public Works is closely monitoring the weather as well as the Mississippi River flooding. We will be responding to flooding calls and staffing our Flood Control and Drain Maintenance operations continuously for as long as necessary.

We also want to notify citizens to be aware of the potential for flash flooding to affect low-lying areas. If anyone is out driving and they come across a street that is flooded, they should not drive through it because of the risk of being caught in a flooding environment. We also encourage our citizens to notify 311 of any drain inlet that needs to be cleaned as well as any location that is experiencing street flooding.
