Sidewalk Inspection & Maintenance Policy

On September 12, 2016, the City Council approved a Sidewalk Inspection & Maintenance Policy.  The policy provides standard specifications for sidewalk construction in residential areas. It also sets a timeline for regularly inspecting and repairing residential sidewalks. In periods between inspections, Public Works staff are allowed to make patches with asphalt or other durable materials. Residents who want to do work on their own sidewalks must apply for a Sidewalk Permit for work in the City Right of Way.


City streets allow residents and visitors safe and easy routes of travel around the City. Streets are maintained throughout the year by the Public Services Department.

Street Lights

To report a street light that is out or blinking, call City Hall, 763-425-2624, ext. 101, or email with the exact location of the problem light, and include a house/street address and the nearest intersection. Please include whether the street light is out or blinking. If you choose, you may also contact Xcel Energy's Outdoor Lighting Outages at 1-800-960-6235 directly or at their website to Report an Outdoor Lighting Outage online.

2016-2017 Residential Sidewalk Repairs

The City completed repairs during the summer of the 2017. 

Due to lower-that-expected costs, the City has been able to fund the entire project with federal Community Development Block Grant funds and an additional contribution from the State of Minnesota’s Small Cities Assistance Program. Under these special circumstances, there will be no property owner contribution required for the 2017 Sidewalk Repairs.

We thank you for your patience during this project, and hope that everyone in the community will be able to enjoy the new sidewalks.

If you have questions about the city’s sidewalk repair program, please visit the city's blog post about sidewalks.
