The City would like to remind all residents of City Code Chapter lll, 3-1-5

Prohibits placing  debris on streets including grass and leafs.  Blowing grass clippings and leafs onto streets is not only prohibited by City Code, it also adversely impacts storm sewer pipes and surface water.  Rainwater washes grass clippings and leaf debris straight into the underground storm sewer pipes. The debris can, at a minimum restricft the flow of water in the pipes and ultimately clog the sewer pipes resulting in costly repairs.


City Hall and the City Maintenace Shop will be CLOSED on Monday, September 3rd in observance of Labor Day.

The regular monthly City Council Meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 4th, at 7:00 pm at City Hall.

The Planning & Zoning Board will hold a meeting on Tuesday, September 4th at 6:30 pm at City Hall.

The City of Arcadia is experiencing low water pressure. We became aware of this last evening and are working hard to resolve the problem. West Central Iowa Rual Water Association has a crew in town, as the problem seems to be the lines coming into town and feeding the Water Tower.  Our hope is that the crew will find the issue, and pressure will be restored quickly. Please check back here at noon today for the next update.  Please Call City Hall with questions or concerns. 689-2442


Water pressure is returning, and most of you should have normal pressure at this time. We are continuing to monitor the lines and tower. Thank you for your understanding!!

BOIL WATER ADVISORY Monday March 26, 2018

The City of Arcadia is under a Boil Water Advisory until further notice. We are working with the DNR and are taking the required samples for testing. Bring all water to a boil for one minute, let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organismns in the water. The water may be used for bathing and other similar purposes. This advisory is a precaution until bacterial sample results become available. We will notify you here when the Boil Advisory has been lifted.
