Notice of Hearing on Proposed Assessment

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Mound City Council will meet at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 10, 2017, in the Council Chambers of City Hall to consider and possibly adopt, the proposed assessment for the delinquent municipal utility bills, to the parcels listed on the following pages. Adoption by the Council of the proposed assessment may occur at this hearing.

Such assessment is proposed to be payable in one annual installment, and will bear interest at the rate of five percent (5%) per annum from the date of the adoption of the assessment resolution. Interest shall be added to the first installment on the entire assessment from the date of the assessment resolution until December 31, 2018 (15 months).

No interest shall be charged if the entire assessment is paid by November 15, 2017.

If you decide not to prepay the assessment before the aforementioned date, the rate of interest that will apply is five percent (5%) per year.

According to Mound City Code, a property owner may make partial prepayment ($100 minimum) by November 15, 2017, with the balance then being certified to the County auditor.

When your assessment is certified to Hennepin County, you may at any time thereafter, pay to the City the entire amount of the assessment remaining unpaid, with interest accrued to December 31 of the year in which such payment is made. Such payment must be made before November 15, 2017 or interest will be charged through December 31, 2018.

The proposed assessment roll is on file for public inspection at the City Clerks office. Written or oral objections will be considered at the meeting. No appeal to district court may be taken as to the amount of an assessment unless a written objection signed by the affected property owner is filed with the municipal clerk prior to the assessment hearing or presented to the presiding officer at the hearing. The Council may, upon such notice, consider any objection to the amount of a proposed individual assessment at an adjourned meeting upon such further notice to the affected property owners as it deems advisable.

An owner may appeal an assessment to district court pursuant to Minn. Stat. 429.081 by serving notice of the appeal upon the Mayor or Clerk of the City within thirty (30) days after the adoption of the assessment and filing such notice with the district court within ten (10) days after service upon the Mayor or Clerk.
