2015 Biennial Transmission Projects Report is now available
The Transmission Project Report summarizes the transmission needs that Minnesota utilities foresee in the near future. Utilities are required by state law to file this Report with the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission by November 1 of each odd-numbered year. In 2015, the Legislature added an additional requirement that a utility that is operating under a multiyear rate plan approved by the Commission also file at the same time a report describing improvements in its transmission and distribution system necessary to enhance reliability and increase energy conservation opportunities.

Performance Measurement Program
In 2010, the Legislature created the Council on Local Results and Innovation.

In February 2011, the Council released a standard set of ten performance measures for counties and ten performance measures for cities that will aid residents, taxpayers, and state and local elected officials in determining the efficacy of counties and cities in providing services and measure residents' opinions of those services.

In February of 2012, the Council created a comprehensive performance measurement system for cities and counties to implement.

In 2013, the Council revised the performance measures and clarified the system requirements to increase participation in the program. The Sherburne County Board of Commissioners have chosen to participate in this program
