Please note: Minnesota Power will continue to bill you for your property taxes in April and September just as we have always done.
Minnesota Power is making some changes regarding the delivery of county tax statements. Starting this year, St. Louis County will mail all tax-related documentation regarding the lease lot directly to the mailing address we have on file. All of these notices are for informational purposes only; please do not pay St. Louis County. If you have questions regarding these notices or the valuations, contact your county assessor.
Minnesota Power does not keep copies of this information, so please keep your tax statements. You also can find tax information on county websites.
Paying your bill
We no longer are able to accept your payments in person at our ShoreLand Traditions office. Two drop boxes are located outside, one on each corner of the office building at 30 W Superior St, Duluth, MN 55802.
Or you can mail your payment directly to our office:
Minnesota Power/ALLETE, Inc.
Attn: ShoreLand Traditions
30 W Superior St
Duluth, MN 55802
Construction and Earthwork Request Form (CERF)
Construction season is right around the corner. Contact the ShoreLand Traditions office early in your planning to start the paperwork/permit process for your project. The Construction and Earthwork Request Form (CERF) must be submitted and approved by Minnesota Power prior to applying for any county or township permits. This form is required for all construction work on your lease land, even if a county or township permit is not required.
