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.

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.
