Moorhead Public Service (MPS) is locally governed by a five-member board of MPS customers known as the Moorhead Public Service Commission (Commission). Each fall, the Commission has the responsibility of establishing the utility’s rates and budget for the upcoming fiscal year. Preliminary estimates indicate that rate increases for MPS customers in 2015 may be in the range of 4.5 percent to 6.5 percent for electric rates and 5 percent to 6 percent for water rates.
The Moorhead Public Service Commission held a public hearing to consider a change in electric and water rates in Moorhead. The public hearing was held on November 12, 2014, at 5:30 PM, in the Council Chambers, Moorhead City Hall, First Floor, 500 Center Avenue, Moorhead. The public was encouraged to attend and offer comments. A link to a video of the public hearing is below as "Video of Rate Hearing."
