Some customers find it hard to pay their utility bills in the winter.  The Minnesota State Legislature has passed a law that is commonly referred to as the “Cold Weather Rule” to protect residential customers from disconnection if they cannot pay their bills in full. This protection lasts from October 1 through April 30.

Residential Electric Heat is sales tax exempt for the billing months of November through April, if electricity is your primary heating source.  For this exemption to be applied, you must provide the utility with a ST3 Certificate of Exemption Form claiming the exemption.

Fluorescent lamps (including compact fluorescent lamps) and high-intensity (HID) lamps contain small amounts of mercury that are harmful to the environment. It is illegal to place products that contain mercury in the garbage. Properly recycling your old lamps prevents mercury from ending up in Minnesota’s precious lakes and rivers.  (Note: Fluorescent and high-intensity discharge lamps are safe to use in your home and mercury is not released when in use.)

Ask us how to properly dispose of CFLs. As we all recycle our used CFLs, we’ll keep mercury out of the environment. You can bring them to City Hall or drop them off during regular business hours at 500 East Tin Street.  This is a service we provide free of charge for City of Redwood Falls’ residents and businesses only.  For any further questions, contact City Hall at 507-616-7400.
