Water & Sewer Department
The City of Itasca continues to work hard to improve the water and sewer service to our citizens. The maintenance team of Itasca is in charge of water repairs, sewer problems, minor street repairs, and animal control.
Trash pickup for the citizens of Itasca is every Thursday.
Along with their hectic and heavy workload, the team many times is called upon to assist in clean up, especially in times of emergency.
This department provides a vital service to the City of Itasca and the citizens are thankful for all that they do to make life better in Itasca.
Major repairs of the city streets took place during the summer of 2003 and in the last 12 years, the maintenance team has continued to work hard to keep the roads in good repair. The last few years have taken a toll on all streets, especially in small towns.
Beginning in the late Spring of 2015, work began to addresses street problems as the weather permitted. Most of the streets have been evaluated and addressed but the City will continue to do repairs as needed.
The City continues to patch and maintain the roads of our beautiful city.
The City would like to remind the citizens of Itasca that when heavy vehicles run off the side of a street and then pull back onto the street, they cause the side to crumble. This crumbling then expands and causes potholes. The City urges everyone to do their part in keeping Itasca beautiful.
Over the past several years, the City of Itasca has seen a lot of growth. Along with the City, the Itasca Police Department under the leadership of Chief Winson Brewer, has also grown to meet the law enforcement needs of the citizens of Itasca.
The department, along with the patrol division, also consists of a criminal investigation division and a narcotics division. The police department consists of six sworn peace officers that provide 24 hours, seven days a week coverage. The officers patrol the corporate city limits and the adjacent interstate.
The Itasca Fire Department was founded in 1896 and has been serving the citizens of Itasca ever since. The IVFD is under the leadership of Jethro Imhoff and has approximately 16 members.
Since the department is all-volunteer, it is always looking for new volunteers to serve in whatever capacity they can. The department has a diverse job description. They respond to calls such as motor vehicle crashes, medical calls, brush fires, and house fires
The IVFD is also on hand to help in times of severe weather..
The City of Itasca's Animal Enforcement is run by The Itasca Police Department. For Animal complaints please contact Officer Gillen at 254-687-2020 or by email at email@example.com

Planning and Zoning
Itasca Welcomes New Construction
The City of Itasca adopted a zoning ordinance in 2004 as the code of the city for the development, erection, construction, alteration, repair, moving, occupancy, and maintenance of all buildings, structures and lots in the city of Itasca.
The Planning and Zoning Committee helps ensure the health, safety, and general welfare of the public by implementing all laws of the zoning ordinance. The committee of seven provides fair, consistent, and thorough service to its citizens.
The committee meets the second Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. to review submitted building permit applications and discuss any city related issues.

Ordinances are updated and changes frequently. Contact City Hall for any questions.
*The Planning and Zoning Committee requests that you must submit your application by the last Friday of the month to have time to complete investigation. *
The City of Itasca continues to see growth within the community. Over the last several years a number of new homes have been constructed. Currently there are 3 homes either under construction or slated to start soon, including a Habitat for Humanity home.
These homes are a boost for the town as well as for the tax roll.
Itasca needs businesses and they continue to come gradually. Several interested merchants have made inquiries as to the availability of buildings suitable for opening a business. City Hall is working hard to make the community as inviting as possible. Businesses add to Itasca's tax base but also to the appeal when potential companies and people investigate the opportunities of locating to Itasca.
With the building of new homes, renovated homes, and businesses, the City of Itasca is not only building new neighborhoods but also new lives.
