Welcome to Marine on St. Croix
Marine on St. Croix, founded as Marine Mills in 1839, was the site of the first commercial saw mill along the St. Croix River. The Mill Site is located behind and to the south of the Village Hall and has been declared a national historical site.
The City has an ordinance preventing the parking of any vehicles, equipment or structure on any street or alley in the City between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. from November 15 until April 1 of the following year. Please help us by keeping vehicles off the streets and alleys. This reduces the amount of time it takes to plow the City Streets. Residents of the City are welcome to take sand and salt from the shed located at 1500 Broadway Street. Bring your own container and shovel.
Don't be alarmed if your hear gun shots.

Permits are required for any person(s) with a firearm. These permits are available at the City office during regular business hours and must be obtained by the landowner. Be aware of this while using walking trails, and make sure you are wearing appropriate clothing, especially during the critical hours of dusk and dawn.
Property owners interested in allowing a bow hunter on their property for the purpose of hunting deer should contact the City office. There is also a list of hunters interested in hunting in this area. Any questions regarding hunting regulations or to report any suspicious or illegal activities (i.e., unauthorized deer stands on private property), you may contact Conservation Officer Scott Arntzen at 763-413-4881.
The City of Marine will again be accepting sticks and branches no larger than 4 inches in diameter at the compost site.

You can contact the City office during regular business hours Monday thru Thursday to obtain a permit. No permit is required once there are 3 inches or more of snow on the ground.
