Yappy Hour is canceled
Yappy Hour for this evening, September 28th is canceled. 

We would like to extend our appreciation to the local organizations and musicians who supported the Windsor Heights Yappy Hour event this September. Unfortunately, the weather was a challenge for us this year and limited the Yappy Hour events at the dog park. We hope you will be able to visit the organizations below and catch a concert from one of the musicians within the Des Moines area.
Thank you to the organizations and talented musicians who helped make Yappy Hour possible.

Flood Update
On August 22nd, we were notified FEMA denied the Individual Assistance request filed by Governor Reynolds. The Governor has vowed to appeal the denial.
While awaiting the federal process to consider funding for recovery, city staff continues to work with Emergency Operation Center and other Metro Partners to provide necessary data for the process. This is an ongoing, long-term process which regularly requires additional information gathering on the part of staff. In addition,staff is working through an "After Action" report which will document responses during the flash flooding. It will also include recovery efforts following the flash flooding to identify opportunities for improvement should another incident of this magnitude occur in the City of Windsor Heights.
City-Wide Storm Water Review
The number #1 goal from the strategic planning session was to review our storm water. Bolton and Menk will present their report of the storm water system infrastructure analysis on Monday, October 1, 2018 at the City Council Meeting at 6:00 p.m. The city wide storm water report will provide a storm water management plan that models the existing storm water system and creates a priority list of recommended improvements that address any deficiencies in the existing storm sewer system.
Flood Mitigation Planning
Please stay tuned for more information and upcoming meetings on the flood mitigation planning process. Keep watch on our website, newsletters and social media for updates.
