Connections - A Weekly Update from the City of Hopkins

Water and Sanitary Sewer Rates Increase January 1

In order to cover current operating costs and adequately fund capital projects, the City Council adopted rate increases. The new rates are effective on January 1 and will first appear on utility bills received in February. An annual state mandated State Health Fee also increases in 2020. All funds collected are remitted back to the state. Storm sewer, refuse and recycling fees remain the same. View the rate increases here.

Free Holiday Tree Pick-Up is Week of January 6

Holiday trees will be picked up curbside, free of charge for Hopkins residential garbage customers the week of January 6. You do not need to call to schedule this service —simply place your tree on the boulevard (no alley pick-ups) by 6 a.m. the day of your garbage service. Wreaths or decorations containing metal pieces will not be accepted, and bags and stands must be removed.

Residents Encouraged to Register for Rave Mobile Safety

Beginning January 1, 2020, the City of Hopkins will use Rave Mobile Safety as the City’s new emergency notification system. Rave is a free service that allows individuals to sign-up for notifications sent from state and local authorities to keep residents informed on potentially hazardous situations involving weather, traffic and other emergencies. The new notification system replaces Code Red. All Hopkins residents, community members and travelers who previously registered for emergency alerts with Code Red must register again with Rave. Learn more about Rave and how to register here.
