Become a Hydrant Hero

MOORHEAD – The City of Moorhead and the Moorhead Fire Department are looking for Hydrant Heroes to help keep our community fire hydrants clear of debris, ice, and snow.

A fire can double in size every minute and it can take critical time for a firefighter to dig out a fire hydrant.

Take some time and adopt one of over 2,000 Moorhead hydrants and volunteer to keep it clear 3 feet and to the street this winter.

Make sure to post a selfie with your hydrant during our Frostival time frame of January 13-February 3 to be entered to win a special prize sponsored by Signature Home Technologies.

Adopt-A-Hydrant Submissions can be sent to: parkandrec@cityofmoorhead.com

For more information contact Kayla, with the Moorhead Fire Department: kayla.cross@cityofmoorhead.com.

Minnesota Individual Income Tax filing season opens February 12, 2021

ST. PAUL, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Revenue will open the state Individual Income Tax filing season on Friday, February 12, 2021. This date matches the opening day for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

The filing deadline to submit 2020 Minnesota income tax returns is Thursday, April 15, 2021. This date matches the filing deadline for 2020 federal income tax returns. Tax software providers and tax professionals may be accepting and preparing tax returns before February 12 and will submit those returns when the IRS and state systems open in February.

“Filing electronically and choosing direct deposit for your refund is still the most convenient, secure, and accurate way to file your return and get any refund you may be entitled to,” said Revenue Commissioner Robert Doty. “We encourage qualifying taxpayers to take advantage of free tax preparation services that will be available around the state beginning in early February, with some offering in-person options and others offering virtual services for Minnesotans.”
