471A.11 REGULATION OF RATES AND CHARGES AND PUBLIC UTILITY LAWS.
A municipality may regulate by ordinance, contract, or otherwise the rates and charges
imposed by the private vendor with respect to any capital intensive public services provided to
the public under the service contract. Whether or not the imposition of such rates and charges is
so regulated, no capital intensive public services provided under the service contract are subject
to regulation under the provisions of chapter 216B, unless the municipality elects to subject the
services to regulation under that chapter. An election for regulation may be made by resolution
of the governing body of the municipality requesting regulation and filing the resolution with
the state public utilities commission.
