What if the snow plow damages my address marker?
Please contact the Engineer's Office at (641) 424-9037 to report the incident as soon as possible after it occurs.
Where should the address sign be located?
Generally, it should be placed to the right of your driveway along the right-of-way line of the street. If that is not practical, finding an alternative location is okay. It needs to be easily seen and legible from the road.
