WHAT IS SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOL?
Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a national and international movement to create safe, convenient, and fun opportunities for children to bicycle and walk to and from schools. The program has been designed to reverse the decline in children walking and bicycling to schools. Safe Routes to School can also play a critical role in reversing the alarming nationwide trend toward childhood obesity and inactivity.
La Crescent was awarded funding in July of this year to complete a city wide SRTS plan. A leadership team consisting of partnerships among many stakeholders that include educators, parents, students, city officials, engineers, planners, business and community leaders, health officials, and bicycle and pedestrian advocates will be working on this plan beginning in September, 2019 and ending in July of 2020.

NOTICE OF RATE CHANGE
STATE WATER USER FEE
The Minnesota Legislature has approved an increase in the drinking water service connection fee from $6.36 annually to $9.72 annually effective January 1, 2020. This fee is passed through to the Minnesota Department of Health’s Drinking Water Protection Program. City Residents are charged this annual water user fee on their utility bill to pay for the last two quarters of the current year and the first two quarters of the next year. Due to the timing of the State rate increase, the following will be the 2019 Rate Calculations for city residents connected to water service:
7/1/19-12/31/19 = $3.18 (1/2 of the current rate of $6.36)
1/1/20-6/30/20 = $4.86 (1/2 of the new rate of $9.72)
Total rate to be collected in 2019 = $8.04
Starting in 2020, the annual rate charged will be $9.72.
