The Madelia Street Department is requesting no parking on streets on even days and no parking on avenues on odd days to assist with street cleanup this fall. This is voluntary but will assist in cleanup. All vehicles parked on the streets in Madelia must move every 24 hours by ordinance. All boats, trailers, and campers must be taken off the streets by October 1st. Thank you for your assistance.
The City of Madelia Water Department will be flushing water mains October 1st through October 5th. The city flushes the mains to keep the mains open and flowing with the least amount of matter in the lines.
If you have discolored water, after the flushing has been completed in your area, run your tap water until the water is clear. The discolored water is iron buildup and is not harmful to individuals.
The Madelia Water Department will be marking curb stops with blue flags. Please do not pull the flags if you find them in your yard! If you have any questions, please call City Hall. Thank you!
