Due to the storm that passed through sections of the City today, July 12, 2017, several streets are littered with tree debris. City crews have been working since 3:30 a.m. to clear the streets and make them passable. The City continues to assess the tree damage the storm created.
The City will not be conducting a cleanup of the storm debris. https://www.ramseycounty.us/residents/recycling-waste/collection-sites/yard-waste Branches can be taken to the Arden Hills Brush Site: 3530 Hudson Ave, Arden Hills, MN 55112 Hours: Phone: (651) 633-3279 Thank you
CONTRACTOR SCAMS Tips.
In Mounds View all door-to-door solicitors are required to obtain a licence through the City before contacting residents. With the recent storm damage the City has recieved complaints from residents who have experienced someone claiming that they can redo their driveway. When asked if they had a license they became rude and left the residence. Below is a link to all licenced Tree Contractors and General Contractors.
CHARITY SCAMS Tips.
In Mounds View all door-to-door solicitors are required to obtain a license through the City before contating residents. They are provided a license which they should show to a resident upon request. Call 9-1-1 immediately if you belive a solicitor is working without approval.
Request written information on the charity that includes the name of the organization, its mission, plans for achieving its objectives, and how much of every dollar collected is used for charitable purposes.
Check with the MN Attorney General’s Office Charity Division at 1-800-657-3787 to determine if the organizaiton is registered. You can also go to www.CharityNavigator.org or www.charitywatch.org.
Contribute by check or credit card. Cash donations are impossible to trace and difficult for the charity to protect. Consider also meeting a specific need, such as a toy or clothing drive.
Never provide your credit card number uless you know the charity and you call the charity yourself. Giving out a credit card number, account number, or other personal information in response to unsolicited phone call is equivalent of giving this information to a complete stranger, and can lead to identiy theft.
If something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. Call the Mounds View Police Department with questions at 763-717-4070.

CO RD I AND I-35W PROJECT WORK DETAILS.
The long-awaited Improvements on Co Rd I near Rice Creek Pkwy and Old Hwy 8 east of I-35W in Arden Hills and Shoreview begin Monday morning, June 26. As construction begins, Ramsey County will close the ramp from northbound I-35W to Co Rd I and the ramp from Co Rd I to northbound I-35W. So if you need to reach Co Road I you ll need to find an alternate route. One suggestion is to continue north on the interstate to Co Rd J and then trav. el back south on I-35W to exit at Co Rd I or use Rice Creek Pkwy south to Co Rd I. The ramps will remain closed until early September.
The project includes construction of a roundabout at the ramp from I-35W northbound, Rice Creek Pkwy and Old Hwy 8 which leads in to the Arden Hills Driver Services facility. In addition, the county plans to improve trail access, build raised medians and new road shoulders and construct a new roadway between Co Rd H and Co Rd I on the east side of the freeway. Once the roundabout is completed, the ramp from Co Rd I to northbound I-35W will close permanently. More about this project
For more information, please visit the Ramsey County project website: https://www.ramseycounty.us/ /county-road-irice-creek-parkw . For more information on the benefits of roundabouts and how to drive them, check out MnDOT s roundabout website. For updated road condition information, call 511 or visit www.511mn.org.
