Minnesota has 2 of the 100 richest cities in America

The list is based on average household income.
Publish date:

Based on a report from Bloomberg, there are plenty of people in Orono and Medina backing up to the bank in Bentleys and Brinks trucks. 

That's a stretch, sort of, but the Bloomberg report (paywall site) does list the two suburbs west of Interstate 494 in its annual richest cities in America top 100 list. 

Orono is up one spot from last year to 53rd in the nation with an average household income of $243,419. Medina, which is just north of glitzy Orono, made the list for the first time at 93rd overall with an average household income of $211,742. 

According to the Minnesota Department of Management and Budget, the median household income in Minnesota (as of 2015) is $65,599. 

Bloomberg finalized its top 100 based on "inflation-adjusted household data" with towns that have a minimum of 2,000 households. You can get a broad look (without paying) at Bloomberg's rankings right here
