Connections - A Weekly Update from the City of Hopkins

Warming Houses Closed Until January 2

Due to warm weather and a forecast for further high temperatures and rain, the warming houses at Hopkins-Minnetonka outdoor ice staking rinks will be closed until January 2. Check the website for updates to warming house closures here.

Free Holiday Tree Pick-Up is Week of January 6

Holiday trees will be picked up curbside, free of charge for Hopkins residential garbage customers the week of January 6. You do not need to call to schedule this service —simply place your tree on the boulevard (no alley pick-ups) by 6 a.m. the day of your garbage service. Wreaths or decorations containing metal pieces will not be accepted, and bags and stands must be removed.

Be Prepared for Snow in Hopkins

Move your Car
When any amount of snowfall occurs, residents should move vehicles off city streets and parking lots. If the snowfall is two inches or more, a snow emergency may be declared and vehicles must be moved immediately to avoid being towed. Call the Snow Line at 952-939-1399 for snow emergency announcements.

Shovel the Sidewalk
As mandated by City ordinance, Hopkins residents are responsible for removing snow and ice from public sidewalks within 12 hours of a snowfall.

Clear the Fire Hydrants
While the City tries to clean snow from fire hydrants as soon as possible after a snow, we could use your help. Please adopt a nearby fire hydrant and keep it clear of snow through the winter. Hydrants should be cleared five feet on each side to give the Fire Department the quickest and best access.
