Minnesota Street

                                                                                                July 15, 2020

Dear Burt Residents,

The Burt City Council wants to keep you informed about improvements that we have planned during this time for Minnesota Street.

Because of continued problems with frost boils every spring, and poor drainage, we have decided to remove the current surface.  We plan to install a rock base and let that sit before making further plans.  We feel that this will give us time to evaluate the situation, and see if the drainage has improved.

We know that this may cause everyone some inconvenience during this time, but we do not want to ignore the problem, and we are trying to proceed in a way that will insure that we get the best results possible for the money spent.  If you have questions, please call City Hall at 515-924-3618.

                                                                                       Sincerely,                                                                                       Burt City Council
