Settlement will ask state to pay for Shoreview, North St. Paul, Vadnais Heights to change water source
A settlement agreement reached between the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and groups concerned about water levels in White Bear Lake could have implications for nearby cities, including Shoreview, Vadnais Heights and North St. Paul.
Announced Dec. 1, the settlement between the DNR and two plaintiff groups—the White Bear Lake Restoration Association and White Bear Lake Homeowners’ Association—states that all three groups will, per the DNR website, “support efforts to develop a surface water supply to serve area communities.”

Though the city’s portion of the property-tax levy is expected to remain flat in 2015, North St. Paul residents will still be seeing their taxes go up, due to a significant uptick in the market value of their homes.
Eerily similar to two prior incidents in Maplewood, North St. Paul Maplewood police are investigating the abduction and threatened sexual assault of a 25-year-old woman that occurred early Sunday morning.
