Does the City repair damage that occurs near the edge of the street?

The City will repair grass damage that results from its snowplows, but does not repair sprinklers, fences or any private improvements installed in the right-of-way. Mailboxes that are physically hit by City snowplows will be repaired but will not repair mailboxes damaged by the force of snow coming off the plow. 

Damage to mailboxes, sprinklers and other private improvements within the right-of-way will be assessed by the Street Superintendent to determine if the City is responsible for restoration. 

Residents can report these types of damage to the Oakdale Public Works department at 651-730-2740. Please note, grass repairs are usually made in May and June through the use of topsoil and seed. The City will provide sod to property owners who want to do their own repairs.
