    The City of Gothenburg is discontinuing the service of locating property stakes effective October 1st, 2011.

    For all building permits or instances in which a property boundary must be located:

    All property owners must locate their property corners before a permit is approved and before the Building Inspector is on site to inspect a project.  For those owners that are able to locate their property stakes on their own; the City will not require you to use a Surveyor.  However, the City shall not be liable for any boundaries located that are incorrect.  For your information, building a structure and using an incorrect boundary may result in potential liabilities; including the removal of a structure.  All owners that are not able to locate their property stakes are encouraged to contact a Surveyor.

  • NOTICE - SEWER CLEANING PROJECT - Starting May 26th!

    The City of Gothenburg, and its contractor, Johnson Service Company will be doing a sewer cleaning and televising project in the south-east quadrant of the community. Some of the work may be during the night time hours in order to televise the sewers at their lowest flow.  The cleaning of sewers, which will only occur during the daytime hours, could potentially cause blowback.  Blowback is a situation in which a minor amount of sewage water could potentially back up into floor drains; or cause water to splatter from toilets.  If you are in the affected area, please remember to keep the lids down on your toilets during the next two weeks.  Also, if you have a sewage smell, please pour water down your floor and sink drains to re-fill the traps.

     Based on what is found as the contractor goes along, we are not able to schedule exact times for when and where the contractor will be working.  However, the contractor will start on 4th Street and work their way north to 10th Street over the two week period.  A map of the affected areas may be viewed at the City Office at 409 9th Street, or online at

     If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the City Office at 537-3668.
