Notice of Public Meeting
In the Matter of County Ditch #15:
The Meeker County Ditch Authority has received requests to have the benefits on this County Ditch 15 re-determined. There is also a request for maintenance on the system that appears will be very costly. The benefits on this system are still the original as determined in the very early 1900’s.
The Drainage Authority may re-determine the benefits and damages of the public ditch system whenever it determines the original benefits do not reflect present day values or that the benefited or damaged acres have changed, or when more than 50 percent of the property owners petition for the redetermination. The Drainage Authority will meet with the landowners to get feedback on the best possible approach.
A meeting of the landowners that benefit, or may benefit, from County Ditch 15 has been scheduled as follows:
Date: Tuesday, September 11, 2012
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Location: Dassel City Hall, 460 3rd Street, Dassel MN
Landowners with questions may call the Auditor’s office at 320-693-5212 or the County Highway Engineer/Ditch Inspector at 320-693-5360.
