Flood Damage?

Have you incurred losses from the June 2024 rain event?

Use the link below to be redirected to Rice County's website to learn how to obtain assistance.

From Rice County, Please Share!


Rice County residents and business owners whose property has been damaged or destroyed by a natural disaster may be eligible to receive some relief on this year and next year’s property taxes. The type of tax relief depends on whether the property is homesteaded, whether it is located within a declared disaster or emergency area, the amount of damage sustained, and other factors.

If an assessor has not already assessed the property damage, contact the county assessor’s office and request that the damage be viewed for the purpose of receiving disaster relief.

The Rice County Assessor’s Office staff will send applications for tax relief to those that may qualify.

It will also share the addresses of damaged properties with the Minnesota Homeland Security and Emergency Management for possible financial assistance.

Property owners with questions should call 507-332-6102 or leave a message with their address, name and phone number and their call will be returned.

Hydrant Flushing Starts!

      Public Works staff will be flushing hydrants, starting May 6th. They will continue to follow the schedule of the 1st Monday of the month, but will be moved due to Holidays. 

     We will try to follow the schedule of the City Council Meetings, weather permitting.

      Hydrants are routinely flushed to clean the distribution system. Residents are advised to avoid or limit water usage during the flushing period and to check for discoloration prior to using water for laundry purposes.
