dear orange city residents,
We have welcomed 2021 and are extremely excited to see our students back in school and for Northwestern College to be in session for the spring semester. We realize that these continue to be very challenging times and are appreciative of the outstanding leaders and administrators at the schools. We are also exceedingly grateful to our teachers and support staff at our schools.
Thank-you for your continued efforts to control the spread of Covid 19 by practicing physical distancing and when appropriate wearing masks. As we have heard often over the past several months – we need to continue to show patience and grace to one another during these uncertain times.
Thank-you also for supporting our local business owners! For Orange City to be Vibrant – we need these very important members of our community to thrive.
The Orange City Public Library continues to serve our community with on-line and face to face service. Landsmeer Golf Course is closed for the winter season – and will re-open when weather conditions allow. Our parks and trails continue to provide great opportunities to enjoy the outdoors when weather permits. Prairie Winds Event Center is open for events and celebrations – and the senior center is open for the enjoyment of our senior citizens.
We encourage you to enjoy these public facilities and programs while practicing recommended physical distancing and the appropriate use of masks.
City Hall is open to the public, however, we continue to encourage you to use the drop box or pay your utility bill by mail. Meetings with staff should be made by appointment.
Please support our many local businesses and restaurants that are now open!
Thank-you for your continued efforts to prioritize the health and safety of all Orange City community members. The City of Orange City continues to collaborate with the Iowa Department of Public Health, Governor Reynolds, the Sioux County Community Health Partners, the Orange City Area Health System and the CDC in providing guidelines for our community.
For utility billing, payments can be put in our drop box at the City Hall. For billing questions, please call (712) 707-4885 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
