Okoboji, IA — The city of Okoboji will be picking up tree branches.

With the damage done by Wednesday morning’s storms, Okoboji city crews are working on cleanup. City residents who wish to have their downed or damaged tree branches picked up, may put those items out near the curb.

Very large limbs will need to be cut to a manageable size before placing them at the curb. Cleanup assistance will continue through next Wednesday, August 27. If any resident contracts with a private tree service for cleanup and tree removal, that tree service is responsible for the waste removal.
