Special Assessments

What are special assessments?

Special assessments are charges to a specific property for a specific improvement performed by the city. Special assessments finance the improvement by charging the benefiting property owner for the cost of the project. The authority to levy special assessments is granted under MN Statute, Chapter 429.

    2. Pre-pay a minimum of 25% in the Assessing Office by Nov. 20, 2017; the recalculated balance will certify a first-year level principal plus declining balance interest and fees for collection in the next year's taxes, or
    3. Take no payment action to have an annual payment consisting of principal plus interest certify to Hennepin County for collection with the next year’s taxes
