MONTICELLO WATER DEPARTMENT FACTS AND FIGURES
    SUMMER CONSERVATION:
    Winter water demand is low compared to the summer months. Lawn watering is the primary source of increased
    water demand during the summer. To help with our demand of water use the City of Monticello added a lawn water-
    ing ordinance, Section 7-2-17B Odd/Even Schedule. A home or business address ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5,
    etc.) may water their lawn on an odd numbered calendar day each month. An address ending in an even number (0,
    2, 4, etc.) may water their lawn on even numbered calendar days. The only deviations to the odd/even watering sys-
    tem are apartment complexes and home owner associations that have been assigned odd or even watering days
    because of the numerous addresses on one sprinkler system. For these complexes and associations, the address
    of the bill for sprinkling water shall be used to determine odd or even. The odd/even schedule is in effect from June
    1 through September 30 of each year until further notice. If you have new sod, seed, trees or shrubs you may get a
    30-day exemption permit at City Hall which will allow you to water every day for 30 days.

RESULTS OF MONITORING
No contaminants were detected at levels that violated federal drinking water standards. However, some contaminants were
detected in trace amounts that were below legal limits. The tables that follow show the contaminants that were detected in
trace amounts in 2007. Some contaminants are sampled less frequently than once per year and, as a result, not all contami-
nants were sampled for in 2007. If any of these contaminants were detected in a previous sampling, they are included in the
table along with the date that the detection occurred.

                       Your dog: love them, leash them!
                       Summer is here! With the nice weather, people and their pets are out enjoying
                       the outdoors. The City of Monticello wants to remind pet owners to be a respon-
                       sible owner. These dog ordinances are set up to ensure everyone’s enjoyment
                       and safety.
Leash Law:
    Loose dog complaints are probably the most frequent type of calls the Animal Control Officer/Police Department re-
ceive. Dogs that run loose are a nuisance and present a possible danger to the public. In addition, they may be in danger
of being struck by a car, stolen, poisoned, or attacked by other dogs. According to city ordinance, all dogs in the City of
Monticello must be kept on a leash unless they are confined to the owner's property. When walking your dog, please be
respectful of other people’s personal property, such as their yards. Keep your pet on a 6 foot leash and under control at
all times.
   If a dog is found running loose, it can be impounded and/or its owner cited into court for a leash law
violation. If you see a dog running loose, you can call Monticello Animal Control at 612-859-6989.
Please provide a description of the dog, its location and direction of travel. If you have detained a dog
that was running loose, you may call Animal Control to come to your home to pick up the dog. Animal
Control Officer is on duty Monday-Friday 8:00-5:00.
    For assistance with a dog after hours, please call the police department at 763- 682-1162. They will
not transport stray animals, but can issue a fine if the owner of the dog is known. If you are able to transport the animal
to the animal shelter, an officer will assist you in letting the animal into the City’s Animal Shelter, located at 203 Chel-
sea Road.
      Cleaning Up After Your Dog:
         It would be greatly appreciated if all pet owners would remember to clean up after your pets. Any person being
the owner of or having control of any dog is required to remove any feces deposited on public or private property. You
must also have in your possession a means to collect and dispose of dog waste when walking your dog. Also remember
to keep your pet’s kennel run or yard clean. Violation of this ordinance can result in a fine being issued.
   Thank you for your help in being a responsible dog owner. If you have any more questions or to report a problem; call
Animal Control at 612-859-6989.

Riverfest Celebration and all the individual park rentals.
   Check out our new flag pole at Hillside Cemetery. A special thank you to the V.F.W. for their donations toward the flag pole.
West Bridge Park also has a new flag pole which was donated by the Monticello Lions. The area around this flag pole will be land-
scaped by the Monticello Lions. The Lions Club has also adopted our new roundabout. The club will be assisting the Parks Depart-
ment with the installation of the landscaping in the roundabout. The Monticello Parks Department thanks the Lions Club for all their
hard work and donations.
   The Parks Department has many upcoming projects. The Parks Department will be doing a lot of work at Groveland Park with a
possible shelter and installing basketball poles and benches. At Xcel Ball
Fields on West River Street we will be putting in dugouts on Field #4 and
also moving a shed to the location for all of our supplies. Look for Pio-
neer Park to get a face lift with a few cosmetic jobs. Sunset Ponds resi-
dents will be happy to hear that the new playground will be installed in
their neighborhood park the first week in August.

  CITY LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE
                                                            www.ci.monticello.mn.us
  Have you visited
  www.ci.monticello.mn.us lately? In April, the City of Monticello launched its new website, offering residents a much
  easier way to get information about their community. The website includes many new features, including:

      An Archive that includes commission agendas and minutes
      An updated Maps section
      A link to important resources, including the hospital, school district, and Chamber of Commerce
      A press release and public notice bulletin board
      An e-news subscriber service

  The City is continuing to build the new site and will be adding other features in the near future.

  Perhaps the most important new addition to the City‟s interactive capabilities is the Citizen Service Desk. The Citi-
  zen Service Desk is the easiest way to find out how to get a burning permit, reserve a park shelter this summer, let
  Public Works know about a pothole on your street, and much more.

  The Citizen Service Desk is one of the main links on the City‟s new website. The Desk offers users a chance to
  “Ask a Question”, “Request a Service” or provide a “Comment or Suggestion”. Visitors to the Desk can click first on
  any of the three paths, then select from a list of common questions or concerns for more information. Within each
  of those topics, the user is provided with helpful information. If the user isn‟t able to get the information they need
  directly from the website, they have the option to send an email to City Hall. That email is then sent directly to City
  staff, who then respond within 1-2 working days.

  The City hopes residents will use the website to view and receive information about Monticello.

                              STATE HIGHWAY 25 TRAFFIC STUDY


The City is currently studying traffic on TH 25 to determine what can be done to reduce congestion,
especially from I-94 to the Mississippi River. This process includes working with our neighbors
across the river to better understand future traffic movements and volumes. The City is also work-
ing closely with the Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) since TH 25 is a state high-
way and any proposed improvements must therefore be approved by Mn/DOT.

Existing traffic was evaluated first to determine the magnitude and primary areas of congestion
along TH 25. Various improvements are now being evaluated including retiming existing signal sys-
tems, adding turn lanes, reducing access, removing and/or relocating signal systems, and con-
structing roundabouts in place of signal systems. Mn/DOT is requiring us to evaluate the use of
roundabouts due to various safety and environmental benefits offered by roundabouts including re-
ductions in crash frequency and severity, and reductions in traffic delay.

Residents, business and property owners will have several opportunities to review and comment on
any proposed improvements, including during public hearings and informational meetings.

More information on this topic can be found on the Engineering Department page of the City‟s web
site @ www.ci.monticello.mn.us.
