New Housing Incentive Program

The City of Paynesville is pleased to provide an incentive program for persons building a new home within the city. Purchasing any privately or city owned lot within the limits of city gets you these incentives:

  • Free water hookup ($800 savings, water meter extra)
  • Free sewer hookup ($1,000 savings)
  • One free boulevard tree
