In existence for over 135 years, Sherburn prides itself on the quality of life it offers it's residence and the welcoming environment it poses for those visiting or just passing through.

With a population of 1137, Sherburn is located in southern Minnesota at the junction of Interstate 90 and State Highway 4, just south of Fox Lake.  We are within 20 miles of the following larger communities: Fairmont, Jackson, St. James, and Estherville, Iowa.  We are a Plan A Statutory City, and have been a municipal corporation since 1879.  The rich farm country has many recreational activities to enjoy year round.  Please, come explore this site and our community.
Sherburn is a desirable location for families with members who work in more than one of the surrounding cities.  We offer short drive times, affordable housing, and a high quality of life.
 Leaf Pick

The leaf pickup this year will be done differently.   There will be two weeks that the city will be going around picking up leaves from the curb.  The week of October 29 will be the first week and the week of November 5 will be the second week.  The entire city will be done each week.  We are waiting until later in October to let most of the leaves fall off the trees.  Please have your leaves to curb during one of these two weeks or both weeks if you have more leaves come down after the first week.  Once the second week is done, the leaf vac will be put away for the year.   If you still have leaves after this time, you can load them and take them to the tree dump.  Also, we ask that you not "mow" the leaves and dump them out at the curb.  This gets a lot of grass clippings mixed in which plugs up the leaf vac.  If there are grass clippings in the leaves, the pile will be left. 

Thank you for your cooperation. 

Tree Trimming

The City is will be driving around town and noting trees that need to be trimmed back that are hanging over the roadway. Many tree limbs are reaching far out in the street and this causes issues for the maintenance equipment such as the street sweeper and the snow plow. We are asking property owners to trim back branches that are hanging too low for equipment to move underneath. If you cannot trim them back, the City will trim them in order to clear the right of way and reduce the risk of damage to city equipment. Thank you.
