[ARCHIVED] Storm Update

Damaged tree on road. Text: Storm Damage Update

Public Works and Public Safety crews are hard at work cleaning up the aftermath left behind by damaging winds. Thank you to the residents who have helped us clean debris from the right-of-ways! 

Safety Hazards

  • If you encounter major safety hazards such as downed power lines please call 9-1-1 right away
  • If possible, avoid areas that look hazardous

Power Outages

  • If you experience any power outages please contact your power company directly

Damaged Trees

  • The City's compost site (located off of 121st Street behind Dodge of Burnsville) is open for individual/private residential tree and branch drop off. The site will be open 24 hours a day for the next few weeks
    • Drop off is free
    • Only trees, branches and vegetation will be accepted
    • Contractor drop-offs will not be allowed
    • Please do not leave any bags or trash at the compost site -- branches and sticks should be unbagged
  • Some areas of the city received significant amounts of damage. In those areas with significant damage, City crews will offer curbside pick up of trees/branches. Branches and trees need to be piled up parallel to the curb and cut into sections no longer than 8’. Crews will be in the following neighborhoods (it may take several days for crews to reach every area):
    • South River Hills
    • Irving/Thomas
    • Judicial/150th/Oakwood/Deerwood
    • Echo Park Area
    • Carriage Lane/Southpoint
    • Greenhaven
  • If you live in these areas and are able to take trees/branches to the City's compost site instead please do so -- your cooperation and assistance are greatly appreciated! Private trees in these areas that are being managed by contractors need to be removed by those contractors 
  • Please note, City crews cannot remove trees if a power line is in the tree. If you notice a power line is tangled in a tree please call 9-1-1 so they can dispatch a power crew to the scene before a tree crew arrives
  • Private tree removal is the responsibility of the homeowner. The City will focus on removing City-owned trees in the boulevard and trees that affect the passibility of roads
