Notice of City Council Consideration of Ordinance

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the New Brighton City Council will be considering approval of:

  • Ordinance No. 876 Amending the 2020 Fee Schedule

If approved, this Ordinance would simplify the City’s new electrical fees; set a value threshold that would trigger when the fire marshal would become involved in reviewing commercial plans; and, would increase the costs for various right-of-way permit types to cover the increased cost to the City for processing and tracking such permits via our website.

Consideration of this ordinance will take place at the City Council’s regular business meeting scheduled electronically for July 28, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. This meeting will be open for public observation. Please contact City Hall at (651) 638-2100 if you have any questions or concerns. Posted 7/7/2020
