Franchise Fees/Agreements


Over the past several months the city council has taken input on adopting a franchise fee on gas and electric utilities for the purpose of funding the city's pavement management program.  The city and both electric utility companies (Xcel Energy and Minnesota Valley Electric Company) have agreed upon a franchise agreement (a franchise agreement is currently in place with the city's gas utility, CenterPoint Energy).  Proposed franchise fee ordinances have also been drafted for each utility.
