Building Permits:
Before beginning any construction make sure to check with city hall regarding any permits you may need.  If you are adding a deck, shed, or fence to your property, a permit is required.
Snow Removal:
Whenever there is one inch of snow or more accumulated there will be no parking on any city street in the City of Huxley. The streets that are marked “Snow Route” will be the first streets to have snow removed. Snow removal on all remaining streets will occur in no particular order.
Once the removal of snow has begun, police officers will start issuing citations on vehicles left on the street. Citations will cost $25.00 and vehicles can also be towed at the owner’s expense.
