Reporting Pot Holes

Pot Holes can happen overnight and your car has an easy time finding brand new holes! Please report all pot holes to the city, county or MnDOT accordingly.

City water mains are flushed semi-annually in the spring and the fall. Flushing is done to remove mineral deposits that have accumulated in the water pipes. Households may experience rusty water, discoloration or other problems during flushing. City crews take precautions to limit problems. However, if you do experience rusty water, running the cold-water tap will clean out your system. Call the Utility Division at 952.960.7900 if you have a problem related to flushing that does not clear up within 48 hours.



City code requires for-profit solicitors to get a solicitation license from the city. Each solicitor must carry a copy of the license, and they must be able to show it upon request. No FEMA solicitors will be going door to door. Call 9-1-1 if you are contacted by one.
