Citizens of Eagle Grove
April 20, 2013 is the Eagle Grove Clean Up Day. This is a great opportunity to clean up our town. As the snow has finally melted, now is the time to dispose of unwanted and unsightly items in your yard.
After the Clean Up Day, the Eagle Grove Police Department will be issuing Nuisance Notices for those violating City Code (see Code below). If violations are not complied with, Citations will be issued. We appreciate your cooperation.
