City of Hokah Water System Improvements

 Dear Residents:

The City of Hokah is contracting with Winona Mechanical, Inc to complete the Well House Improvements which include major upgrades to both Well House 1 and Well House 2. This project will include installing new pumps, upgrading the electrical service and controls, HVAC, new piping, installing a secondary generator and various other improvements to the City’s water system.

Completion of this project is vital to the integrity of our community infrastructure and to keeping our water systems running.  In order to move forward with this project, the City will need to fund the project through MN Rural Water Associations MEGA Loan program  and has approved the issuance of a $1,292,000 general obligation water revenue note.  This will require an increase in the water utility rates for the Hokah City residents.

Residents are invited to attend the public council meeting to be held on April 4, 2023 at 6 PM at the Hokah Fire Station to ask questions related to the project and the projected rate increases.  It is important for residents to understand why there is a plan to increase water rates and to understand that the city has done all that we can do to try to minimize the impact as much as possible.  We encourage you to attend and participate.


Lindsey Martell

City Clerk/Treasurer
