North St. Paul Police Department requests the following information:

The City of North St. Paul has an ordinance requiring all dogs to be leashed when not on their owner’s property. If you have a dog running loose, please contact the Police Department at 651-747-2406 Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Officers will respond to reports of barking dogs. Residents should be aware the City Ordinance for barking dogs is enforceable at any time day or night. When an officer responds, they will park in the area of the complaint and monitor for barking. If the dog barks continuously, the officer will try to make contact with the owner. If no one is home, a call tag will be left at the residence asking them to contact the Police Department. If the issue is not resolved, the owner will be cited.
You will need to contact the Police Department to see if your dog is in custody. Staff will explain the procedure and any fees you will be required to pay.
You should first seek medical attention if needed. Then contact the North St. Paul Police Department by calling 651-747-2406.
After hours, call Ramsey County Dispatch at 651-747-2507
The department will then send an officer or community service officer to take the report. We will then require the animal to be quarantined for 10 days. At the end of the 10 days, North St. Paul Police will check the dog to ensure it is healthy and then follow up with the victim. Any dog that has bitten someone more than once may be declared potentially dangerous. Depending on the severity of the bite, the dog may be declared potentially dangerous or dangerous after 1 incident. This is another reason we require people to report dog bites.
The NSPPD does not pick up stray cats. Based on the ordinances, if an animal is running at large/a threat to the public, the NSPPD will become involved. By City Ordinance cats, like dogs, must be leashed if not on the owner’s private property.
We’re sorry, but the Police Department does not respond to wild animal calls. We do not remove wildlife simply because it is on your property. However, if the animal is causing property damage you may set your own live traps. If you trap an animal, do not take it to some other part of town and release it. This could potentially spread disease.
We’re sorry, but we are unable to assist with injured birds unless they are birds of prey (owls, hawks, eagles, etc.). Please contact the University of Minnesota Raptor Center at 612-624-4745 if you find an injured bird of prey.
Based on your income, you will pay a set amount for your Xcel Energy bill each month. When you make your payment, Xcel Energy will put a credit on your account to help keep you current on your bill. If you have a past due balance, you will also receive help to get caught up on your bill.
If you made your full budget payment by your due date, and you do not see your discount on your Xcel bill, call Xcel Energy at 1-866-975-7327.
Your bill from Xcel Energy is always going to show the total amount that you owe. You just need to pay your budget payment each month to receive your discounts and remain on the program.
If you have a credit balance on your bill, you do NOT need to make a payment. Discounts will not be applied to your account if you have a large credit balance or if no payment is made.
If you miss two payments, you will be removed from the program and cannot re-apply until the next calendar year. You will have to pay your full balance due, and Xcel Energy can take various credit actions, including shutting off your service.
As long as you continue to make your monthly payment and meet the eligibility guidelines, you can remain on the program. After one year, we will re-evaluate your budget and credit amounts based on updated usage, current balance and income information. If you have not received Energy Assistance for the current heating season, you may be removed from the program at that time.
Contact that utility company to see if they offer an affordability program and ask them how to apply.
