Burn Ban Update
The burn ban will remain in effect indefinitely. With the elevated temperatures and tree debris drying out very quickly, there is an enhanced fire risk in our community. While outdoor cooking is allowed, we ask residents to exercise caution and ensure the cooking fire is completely extinguished.
Please continue to monitor the weather forecast with severe thunderstorms possible on Friday, August 28. The Linn County Emergency Management Agency will be activating the outdoor warning siren if winds exceed 40 mph because of the significant number of damaged trees and debris from the August 10 derecho.

Tree Debris Update
IMPORTANT NOTE! If a City tree, limb or debris has fallen into a street, move the limb to the side of the road if possible and contact Forestry (319-286-5747). The City will first clear the street and then return at a later time to pick up any debris or leftover city limbs. The City will clear alleys but not remove private debris.
