Mayor Fitzthum has proclaimed Wednesday June 30, 2021, “Day at the Diamond” Day! The Sartell community has so much to be proud of when it comes to baseball and softball at all age levels, and today, we want to celebrate those accomplishments.
Sartell has over 700 youth who participate in the Sartell Baseball Association, Sartell Fastpitch Association, and Community Ed- all of which are in the height of their summer seasons.
Both the high school baseball and softball teams were wildly successful this year- making it to their respective State Tournaments.
And tonight, we get to celebrate our two amateur teams as the Sartell Muskies take on the Sartell Stone Poneys at St. Cloud Orthopedics Field as part of the Fox 9 News Town Ball Series.
We couldn’t be more proud of our baseball and softball programs! Join us at the diamond tonight as we watch the Muskies vs. Stone Poneys game at 7 pm! Read the full press release for the event below.

For Immediate Release: June 14, 2021
The City of Sartell released the water ban at 3 pm today. At that time the Splash Pad will be in full operation and property owners will be allowed to use irrigation systems based on the odd/even yard sprinkling Ordinance.
The City of Sartell asks that property owners abide by the odd/even yard sprinkling Ordinance. The odd/even yard sprinkling schedule was implemented in 1999 and asks residents who live at an even-numbered address to only use their irrigation systems on even-numbered dates, and residents who live at an odd-numbered address to use irrigation systems on odd-numbered dates. For example, if your address is 625 XYZ Street, your watering day would be on an odd-numbered calendar day (i.e. June 21st). The City of Sartell asks for full cooperation in this schedule to avoid another water ban. Failure to comply with the schedule will result in a citation. This ordinance does not apply to any type of well system.
The recent water ban was put in place because our water levels were at a dangerously low level. This happens for many reasons:
The drought conditions in Minnesota have subsided but are not gone. Therefore, complying with the odd/even yard sprinkling schedule is very important along with some other ways we can conserve water together as a community:
The water ban was put in place Wednesday June 9. Due to low water levels, residents were asked to stop using irrigation systems at that time and the splash pad was shut down. As of 3 pm today, the ban is lifted. If you would like to subscribe to City of Sartell updates moving forward, please subscribe here:
Please contact us at email@example.com with any questions.
Due to the drought-like weather we have been experiencing and the increased use of community members using irrigation systems, the City of Sartell has extremely low water levels so the City of Sartell is issuing a water emergency. In order to avoid a citation, join us in taking the following precautions as residents and business owners:
- No irrigation allowed (public or private properties – including city parks)
- Splash Pad will be closed until further notice, but we will monitor it closely in hopes of opening ASAP (Celebration pool is not afftected)
Public Works Utility crews will be monitoring water levels constantly to determine when we are at a safer level and we will continue to communicate updates with our residents and businesses.
The Public Works Utility crews will be out and about educating residents on the ban June 9th and 10th.
We will not issue citations for those who use non-city sources for irrigation, but encourage cooperation with the ban if possible.
The City of Sartell appreciates your cooperation at this time. We need to work together to keep our community safe!
For questions please contact Jeff Bemboom, firstname.lastname@example.org
Please remember the City of Sartell follows the odd/even sprinkler schedule! If your house number is even, please water your lawn on even calendar days. If your house number is odd, please water your lawn on odd calendar days. You can receive a citation from the City if you violate this.
