Seal Coating

The City of Madelia Street Department will be seal coating the East section of the community on August 27th.

During the patching and prep work, streets, or portions of streets, may be temporarily closed. Throughout the seal coating process, traffic is restricted until the aggregate is applied and parking is prohibited on the streets being coated. Any parked cars left on the street will be towed to driveways or around the block in the event that they are not moved. The streets due for seal coating will be marked off. Streets will be available for parking after the aggregate is applied and the necessary compaction is complete.

Thank you for your cooperation!

Building Permit Notice

All building projects, including driveway slabs, sidewalks, and landscaping, MUST have a building permit with the City of Madelia. The Water Supervisor maintains all curbs stops (City Code §50.02). If curb stops are covered or damaged from any type of landscape or cement work, it will be at the owner’s expense for any repairs or replacements. Stops are supposed to be even with the ground or cement – if not, they are a tripping hazard! Also, be sure to call before you dig – Gopher State One Call: 800-252-1166.

Building Permit application forms can be found on our website or at City Hall.
