Anyone know who this is or who's truck this is? On 04/05/2018 at 0017 hours, these individuals helped themselves to a flag off the front of a house in the 1400 block of 4th Ave. The flag taken was a one, white in color with black lettering. Yes, we understand these individuals aren't bank robbers, however, this is equally as frustrating for the homeowners. If you know them or anything, please reach out to Officer Derek Nelson at 763-576-2816, or

⚠️SERIOUSLY! GO HOME/STAY HOME⚠️ Roads are not in good shape, it’s still snowing heavily, and the wind is making it worse. City plows will be out 3am tomorrow morning. Please, No parking on city streets 2-6am.

***THE RABIES CLINIC HAS BEEN CANCELED*** Due to the weather and concern for the conditions of the roads we are canceling the rabies clinic today. We are unsure yet whether we will reschedule or not. But we will advertise it if we do. Please stay safe if you decide to venture out this weekend!

Let’s play the game, Is this sleet, graupel, or hail?

***RABIES CLINIC INFO*** We will still be going ahead as planned with the rabies clinic at the animal containment center. Though if the weather gets too bad, WE WILL SHUT DOWN EARLY. We will try our best to publish on social media as soon as we can if we close it down.

We are getting closer to Walk a Mile in Her Shoes! We still need people to sign up and walk for a good cause! Thank you!

This is occurring on Saturday 04/21/2018 from 6a to 6p. The suggested detour route is on the notice. At least it's only one day.

We would like to introduce to you our newest Police Officer. "Bravo" is a 15-month-old German Shepherd Dog/ Belgian Malinois cross that was raised by a working dog breeder in Hlohovec, Slovakia. He just finished his initial 14 weeks of training that included certification in narcotics detection, apprehension, articles searches, and tracking. His handler is Officer Jake Sorteberg who was selected last fall for the position and has been employed by the city for 6 years, 4 as an officer. Bravo and his certification training were both funded by a sole anonymous donor, however, other local organizations also expressed interest to support and help cover the costs. Officer Sorteberg chose the name "Bravo" to represent the Police Department as "Bravo" is our city designation on the radio. Officer Sorteberg advised that Bravo's favorite thing to do off duty is to visit with all his neighbors, especially, the female yellow lab that lives next door to them.......

Outstanding Job Sgt. Schneider and Officer Adler.
