Emergency Alerts and Notifications: Emergency Management has changed the company they use for alerts. The City of Burt will continue to use their choice of system. Some of you are still signed up to receive these messages. For some reason not everyone was transferred to the new one. Please go to smart911.com to register. The city will only be using the text and email options. You can also register via text message. Just teck KossuthIA to 672-83. 

Pet Owners:  It is the duty of every person owning or having custody or control of an animal to clean up, remove, or dispose of the feces deposited by such animal upon public property, park property, public right-of-way or the property of another person.

Snow Removal: Per ordinance, it is the responsibility of the abutting property owners to remove snow, ice, and accumulations promptly from sidewalks. Residential property owners should have snow, ice, or accumulations removed within 48 hours. Walnut Street business owners should have snow, ice, or accumulations removed within 24 hours. If not, the City may do so and assess the costs to the property owner for collection in the same manner as property tax. Be mindful of where you are piling snow and keep your snow on your own property. Also remember to keep your vehicles off city streets during the winter so the City Crews can get the streets cleaned off as quickly as possible.

Budget Billing: If you are interested in paying the same amount each month on your utility bill, please contact City Hall at 515-924-3618 and ask about budget billing.
