Property Damage Assessment

This week, the City will perform an initial assessment of private property structural damage in Northfield, specifically, damage to homes.  The assessment will only include location and general category of damage, not specific dollar values of the damage.

In order to perform the assessment efficiently, the City will use two methods of reporting.

-          The City is asking anyone with damage to their home or business building to report the damage to the City.  Residents with damage are asked to call 507-645-3045 or email:  Please leave a message with your address, name, and what part of your home is damaged by Wednesday October 3, 2018.  This Damage Assessment only relates to private property structural damage; it is not intended for reporting storm damage to trees.


-          City Staff will survey affected areas of the City to identify damaged structures.


Check the City of Northfield website for updates . Please contact Public Works at 507-645-3045 with any questions.
