Grimes Iowa Public Works
Public Works

The Public Works Department is responsible for maintaining and improving all city streets, alleys, and community property.
The City shop is located at 1700 SE Destination DR.

We have a service called Mobile 311 that allows residents to submit problems, or concerns directly to our Public Works Department. Link is off site. Mobile311

Do you have extra cardboard? We now have a dumpster that residents of Grimes can use to dispose of cardboard. It is located at the City Maintenance Shop, 1700 SE Destination Drive. Please note that this dumpster is for cardboard only.


Mid American Energy owns most of the street lights in Grimes. A streetlight that is on during the day or repeatedly cycles on and off needs attention just the same as a light that is completely out. To report a streetlight problem online please use this link to Mid American Energy's streetlight repair request form.  ( This will open in a new window )
