The City of Graettinger would like to remind everyone to please slow down while driving in town and be more aware of our fellow pedestrians and cyclists. The summer season can be extremely busy with all the kids around town, and we want to remind everyone to pay extra careful attention. Please also be responsible and remind our youth to pay attention to their surroundings and look both ways when crossing the street. Remember if you are on a bike you must follow all traffic signs. Golf carts may be operated upon the traveled portion of streets in the city by persons POSSESSING A VALID DRIVER'S LICENSE. For any questions please feel free to call City Hall 712-859-3742. Thanks again

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.

Congratulations to the City of Graettinger!!! Recently Graettinger applied for a grant through AARP to help fund the pickleball courts currently under construction at Citizens Park.

The pickleball courts and walkways will be a wonderful addition for our citizens, of all ages, to come together and enjoy our beautiful town.
