April 20, 2022—Residents of a town in southern Minnesota are being asked to provide input on their municipal government's preparation for electric and autonomous vehicles.

North Mankato, which is about 80 miles southwest of Minneapolis, has put out a 19-question survey "to gauge the perception of vehicle technology and its impact on existing infrastructure," according to a report from KEYC. 

The city's survey says it hopes public feedback will help guide its use of federal and state funding for implementation of EV and autonomous infrastructure. 

”We are sort of gauging interest right now with our survey and our study," North Mankato City Planner Matthew Lassonde said per the KEYC report. "We are gauging interest around the community, who will be purchasing electric vehicles in the near term, who is excited about them, what are the opposition to them."
