The Gnats are out! These pesky bugs are aggressive around people and annoying, flying into people's faces, under their glasses, and into our ears. We have received inquiries asking if we can 'spray' for them. The City of Graettinger did reach out to our pest control professional's and they did advise us they did spray for mosquitoes, but the spray does not have any noticeable effect on gnats. Please follow these common prevention tips to help avoid bites: 1.Avoid bodies of water. Gnats are often found near swamps, ponds, marshes, and streams. ... 2. Cover exposed skin. Gnats usually bite around the face, but they can bite any area of exposed skin. ... 3. Use insect repellent. ... 4. Wear light clothing. ... 5. Wear closed shoes. ... 6. Install window screens. ... 7. Avoid using scented products.

We would like to thank those of you that have taken the time to clean up your property! We appreciate your help in taking pride in our community and keeping our town clean. We would like to remind our neighbors about some common nuisances to address around town. Junk Vehicles: According to city ordinances, a junk vehicle is any motor vehicle or piece of machinery that is inoperable, such vehicles are considered a threat to the health and safety of the citizens and is a nuisance within the meaning of Section 657.1 of the Code of Iowa. If any junk or junk vehicle is kept upon private property in violation hereof, the owner of or person occupying the property upon which it is located shall be prima facie liable for said violation. The following characteristics are an example of junk and junk vehicle: Broken glass, Broken parts, flat or loose parts, habitat for animals or insects, defective or obsolete condition, said vehicle has not moved for 30days. Dogs are not to run at large. Vicious dogs are not allowed in the City and if your dog bites someone or is running at large you may be subject to medical bills for the injured party as well as fines from the City. If dogs are tied up, they need to be kept on your property not on public property (which includes sidewalks) or someone else’s property. Keep in mind even though you may know the animal, someone else may be intimidated by it. Also, a barking dog is considered a nuisance. This could be very bothersome to others that live in your neighborhood. The intent is not to serve fines but rather to make our community one that we can all be proud to live in and enjoy. If individuals comply no further action will need to be taken. If fines apply, the first offense is $750 and $1,000 for each day thereafter. Please contact City Hall at 712-859-3742 if you have any questions. Thank you! If you see a neighbor that needs help, please be kind. Graettinger Tree Dump is available for our residents of Graettinger. Garbage tags are available for additional bags you may have, they are $2.00 each and are needed for Harris Sanitation pickup. The tags can be purchased here at City Hall.
