City Tree Sale
Orders are currently being accepted for the Shorewood City Tree Sale. The shade tree being offered this year is the Hackberry. Other trees offered are the White Cedar, Japanse Tree Lilac and Padoga Dogwood (an excellent replacement for Buckthorn). Japanese Tree Lilac and Dogwood were selected for being bee friendly and for their winter beauty. The White Cedar does well in this area, able to handle the clay soils and some shade. The Hackberry is a beautiful shade tree that will mix well with the current trees in Shorewood and is disease resistant. Order by April 1. Limited supplies of all trees. All trees must be picked up at Minnetonka Pubic Works facility on April 25 or 26. See the order form for complete details.

Reporting Pot Holes
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. Flushing is currently taking place on the west side of Shorewood heading east.
