Welcome to the Decorah Street Department

The Decorah Street Department maintains over 100 lane miles of streets, alleys and many public parking lots in the downtown area. The street department also makes all necessary repairs to street, alley, and public sidewalks. This also includes all minor street and curb repair/replacement, pothole repair, spray patching, street sweeping, leaf pickup, snow and ice removal.

If you have questions regarding any of the information listed on our site, please feel free to contact us.

Yard Waste Site

Located on Trout Run Road 1/4 mile south of Hwy 9

The Yard Waste Site will accept waste only from properties within the City limits which are hauled to the site by residents of the City of Decorah. [Read More]

***REMINDER***   Curbside leaf collection program does not begin until October.  Placing leaves or other yard waste in the street can clog storm sewer piping and decrease water quality.  The city is asking people to remove any leaves or other yard waste that has been placed in the street.  City residents can take their yard waste to the yard waste site on Trout Run Road.
