Tree Sale Underway

Birch, Beech and Coffeetree are sold out.

The City of Shorewood in cooperation with the City of Minnetonka offers a spring tree sale to residents. The tree sale is an effort to get larger trees into the Shorewood landscape prior to the Emerald Ash Borer arriving. Shorewood has a large number of ash trees and establishing a variety of trees now can help eliminate devastation to our natural forestry. Order trees now as the supply is limited. Click on the tree name on page one of the order to view the facts on the trees. Tree pick up is May 1 and 2 at Minnetonka Public Works. If you cannot attend you must arrange pick up of your trees on one of those days. If you have questions call the city at 952.960.7906 or by email.

Reporting Pot Holes

Pot Holes can happen overnight and your car has an easy time finding brand new holes! Please report all pot holes to the city, county or MnDOT accordingly.

City water mains are flushed semi-annually in the spring and the fall. Flushing is done to remove mineral deposits that have accumulated in the water pipes. Households may experience rusty water, discoloration or other problems during flushing. City crews take precautions to limit problems. However, if you do experience rusty water, running the cold-water tap will clean out your system. Call the Utility Division at 952.960.7900 if you have a problem related to flushing that does not clear up within 48 hours.



City code requires for-profit solicitors to get a solicitation license from the city. Each solicitor must carry a copy of the license, and they must be able to show it upon request. No FEMA solicitors will be going door to door. Call 9-1-1 if you are contacted by one.
