Welcome to De Soto, Iowa!

As Mayor of the City of De Soto, I would like to welcome you to our website. It is my goal to build on the City's rich history and help guide our City's council and community leaders with forward progress planning for DeSoto's economic growth and development.

Established in 1868, DeSoto has always taken great pride in our small town values with a moderate population of just over a thousand residents. DeSoto continues to possess a strong character built upon a solid foundation by our Community Leaders, City Staff, Award-winning Public Works Department, State Accredited City Library, Police and Fire Department.

DeSoto offers great opportunity for business, located at the intersection of Interstate 80 and Highway 169, just 15 miles west of West Des Moines and is a wonderful community for families, large and small with an easy commute for work and entertainment in the greater Des Moines area.

Thank you, we look forward to your visit.
