New Ehlers Water Development Fee Study confirms competitive rates for Shakopee residents.
In an updated Ehlers report submitted to the Commission on October 5, our outside consultants confirm that Shakopee residents pay less than average for their water when compared to various Metropolitan communities. There are also graphs showing how various fees for Shakopee compare to other Minnesota communities.
Taken from page 11 in the Ehlers report, the following chart shows the usage fees and base fees paid by Shakopee residents as compared to those paid by residents of surrounding communities, with the average indicated. Shakopee is below average.
