City of Fort Dodge, Iowa Official Page

With more snow forecasted this week, we want to give you an in-depth look at how the City of Fort Dodge Public Works Department handles snowfall in the City. Snowfall is dealt with on a 6 level system – ranging from Level 0 to Level 5. Please understand that our first priority will always be emergency routes, hills and bridges.

We want to thank everyone for your patience when a snow event does occur. It's not uncommon for our Public Works employees to work 12 plus hours in a day trying to move the snow. This is the time of year they're called on 24-7, regardless of whether it's a holiday or the middle of the night, to make sure routes are open.With more snow forecasted this week, we want to give you an in-depth look at how the City of Fort Dodge Public Works Department handles snowfall in the City.

Question: after the snow routes, how do you determine what streets to do next?

We really appreciate the snow removal on the paved trails along 15th Ave N. Thanks.

DID YOU KNOW...
...the City of Fort Dodge has three snowplows with wings that allow us to cover more ground during a snow event more quickly. These plows require more room to work, so please be aware of the emergency snow routes and, if you're not on a snow route, please move your vehicles off of the street if possible. #FDDidYouKnow #FDDidYouKnow2019

DID YOU KNOW...
...your water bill is going to look a little different? The State of Iowa is requiring cities to separate the taxes charged on utility bills. Residential customers will now see "Water Excise Tax" instead of "Sales Tax." Commercial customers will see a "Water Excise Tax" and "Sales Tax" (this is for sanitary sewer). These are not increases, just a change in wording.

My bill has gone up dramatically. I live alone, no washer, and I pay 70 or more a month. I'm NEVER HOME!

When do customers get an itemized receipt of where all the water hikes and increases have gone to and been spent on?

I would have just figured it was another tax for something I've lost track of them all
