From November 1 though April 1, city streets need to be free of parked vehicles during the hours of 12 to 5 AM or any time it snows two or more inches, day or night, until the streets are plowed. A good rule of thumb is to not park on city streets any time "measurable snow" is forecast.
The average water hardness is 14.6 grains.
In April of each year, the City gives away trees to Oakdale residents on a first-come, first-served basis. The event is held at Walton Park (15th Street and Hadley Avenue). Numbers are handed out at 9 am and trees are distributed at 10 am. Residents may select from three to four varieties. Master Gardeners are also on hand to answer questions about planting your new tree. Watch the City newsletter, electronic message boards, and social media for the date of the tree giveaway.
Each year, the City receives requests for traffic control signage. The City investigates the area to determine if additional signage or enforcement is necessary.
The City has found that "Children at Play" signs, "Stop" signs, and additional speed limit signs are generally ineffective in controlling speeders because the offenders often live in the immediate area. Although enforcement may be an immediate solution, the most effective overall method is for all drivers to take special care to observe posted speed limits, especially in the presence of children.
