WRITTEN OR ORAL OBJECTIONS: Written or oral objections by any property owner will be considered at the hearing.
RIGHT OF APPEAL: An owner of property to be assessed may appeal the assessment to the district court of Dakota County pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, Section 429.081 by serving notice of the appeal upon the Mayor or Clerk of the City within 30 days after the adoption of the assessment and filing such notice with the district court within ten days after service upon the Mayor or Clerk.
LIMITATION ON APPEAL: No appeal may be taken as to the amount of any assessment adopted by the City Council unless a written objection signed by the affected property owner is filed with the Clerk prior to the assessment hearing or presented to the presiding officer at the hearing. All objections to the assessments not received at the assessment hearing in the manner prescribed by Minnesota Statutes, Section 429.061 are waived, unless the failure to object at the assessment hearing is due to a reasonable cause.
DEFERMENT OF ASSESSMENTS: Under the provisions of Minnesota Statutes, Sections 435.193 to 435.195, the City may, at its discretion, defer the payment of assessments for any homestead property owned by a person 65 years of age or older for whom it would be a hardship to make the payments. However, the City has elected not to establish any deferment procedure pursuant to those Sections.
SPECIFIC AMOUNT TO BE ASSESSED: The amount to be specifically assessed against your particular lot, piece of parcel of land is shown on Exhibit A, which is on file with the City Clerk.
PREPAYMENT: You may prepay the entire assessment to the Treasurer of the City until the assessment roll is certified to the County Auditor; after certification to the County Auditor, prepayments of the entire amount remaining due may be made to the County Auditor at any time.
NO PARTIAL: The City Council has not authorized the partial prepayment of assessments prior to certification of the assessment or the first installment thereof to the County Auditor.
PREPAYMENT WITHOUT INTEREST, OR WITH INTEREST TO END OF YEAR: No interest shall be charged if the entire assessment is by July 31, 2009. If the property owner pays the entire amount at any time after July 31, 2009, but before any certification to the County Auditor, he or she needs to pay only the amount of interest accrued as of the date of payment. At any time after the certification, the property owner may still pay the entire amount remaining unpaid to the County Treasurer. In this case, however, prior to November 15 of any year the property owner must pay all interest, which would have accrued to December 31 of the year in which the person makes the payment.
INTEREST RATE: If the assessment is not prepaid by July 31, 2009, interest will accrue on the assessment at the rate of 6.5% or 2 points above the City’s bond rate at the time the assessments are certified to the County Auditor, whichever is less. Interest accrues from the date to be specified in the resolution levying the assessment, but not earlier than the date of such resolution. Assessments shall be payable in equal annual installments extending over a period of up to 10 years, the first of the installments to be payable with general taxes for the year 2009, collectible with such taxes during the year 2010.
Dated this 17th day of December, 2008.
BY ORDER OF THE CITY COUNCIL.
