Adoption by the County Board of the proposed assessment may occur at the hearing. The following is the area proposed to be assessed: Property which is encumbered by a permanent injunction pursuant to Wright County District Court File No.: 86-CV-12-3850 and which is described as Sect-15 Twp-120 Range-025 UNPLATTED LAND BUFFALO TWP 80.00 AC W1/2 OF NE1/4, County of Wright, State of Minnesota.
The amount to be specially assessed against the particular lots, pieces, or parcels of land is as shown in the assessment roll on file with the Wright County Auditor/Treasurer. Such assessment is proposed to be payable in equal annual installments extending over a period of 3 years, the first of the installments to be payable on or before the first Monday in January 2017, and will bear interest at the rate of 4.00 percent per annum from the date of the adoption of the assessment resolution. To the first installment shall be added interest on the entire assessment from the date of the assessment resolution until December 31, 2017. To each subsequent installment when due shall be added interest for one year on all unpaid installments.
An affected property owner may at any time prior to certification of the assessment to the County Auditor, pay the entire assessment on such property, with interest accrued to the date of payment, to the County Auditor. No interest shall be charged if the entire assessment is paid within 30 days from the adoption of this assessment. An affected property owner may at any time thereafter, pay to the County Auditor 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 or interest will be charged through December 31 of the succeeding year. If an affected property owner decides not to prepay the assessment before the date given above the rate of interest that will apply is 4.00 percent per year.
The proposed assessment roll is on file for public inspection at the County Auditor’s Office. The total amount of the proposed assessment is $2,160.00. 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 County Coordinator or County Auditor prior to the assessment hearing or presented to the presiding officer at the hearing. The County Board 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.
Under Minn. Stat. §§ 435.193 to 435.195, the County Board may, in its discretion, defer the payment of this special assessment for any homestead property owned by a person 65 years of age or older or retired by virtue of a permanent and total disability for whom it would be a hardship to make the payments. When deferment of the special assessment has been granted and is terminated for any reason provided in that law, all amounts accumulated plus applicable interest become due. Any assessed property owner meeting the requirements of this law, may, within 30 days of the confirmation of the assessment, apply to the County Auditor for the prescribed form for such deferral of payment of this special assessment on his/her property.
An owner may appeal an assessment to district court pursuant to Minn. Stat. § 429.081 by serving notice of the appeal upon the County Auditor or the Chair of the County Board within 30 days after the adoption of the assessment and filing such notice with the district court within ten days after service upon the County Auditor or Chair of the County Board.
