Frequently Asked Questions


Who do I talk to about the floodplain?


Please contact Floodplain Administrator Craig Davis with Secondary Roads at 563-927-3505.


Do I need a zoning permit to replace or upgrade antennas on an existing communication tower?


No, you do not need a permit for replacing antennas, doing upgrades, or routine maintenance. The only time that a permit is required is when a new tower is going to be constructed.
