Notice is hereby given that the City Council of Albert Lea will meet via Zoom in the Council Chambers of City Hall, 221 East Clark Street, at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, November 9, 2020 to consider, and possibly adopt, the proposed assessments for Municipal Services and/or Municipal Utilities.

Anyone wishing to address the City Council and/or Mayor regarding this matter can:
• Join the meeting via the following Zoom attendee link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85804098175. You will have the option to be called upon during the public comment portion of the meeting via the Zoom raise hand feature.

• As a reminder, no appeal may be taken as to the amount of an assessment unless a signed, written objection is filed prior to the meeting. Please call the City Clerk at 507-377-4335 for further instructions on submitting written objections.

Adoption by the City Council of the proposed assessment may occur at the hearing.

Such assessment is proposed to be payable in equal annual installments extending over a period of 5 years and will bear interest at the rate 2.9% per annum from the date of the adoption of the assessment.

An owner at any time prior to certification of the assessment to the County on December 31, 2020, pay the entire assessment on such property, with interest accrued to the date of payment. Such payment must be made at the City of Albert Lea Finance Department. No interest shall be charged if the entire assessment is paid by December 10, 2020 (30 days from the adoption of this assessment activation resolution).

If an owner decides not to prepay the assessment by December 31, 2020 you may pay the entire assessment at the County with interest accrued to December 31st of the year in which the payment is made. The rate of interest that will apply will not exceed 2.9% per year.

The proposed assessment roll is on file for public inspection at the City Clerk’s office. Written objections will be considered at the meeting. No appeal may be taken as to the amount of an assessment unless a signed, written objection is filed prior to 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 Minnesota Statutes Section 429.081 by serving notice of the appeal upon the Mayor or City Clerk 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 City Clerk.

Under Minnesota Statute 435.193 to 435.195 and the Albert Lea Special Assessment Policy, the council may, in its discretion, defer the payment of this special assessment for any homestead property owned by a person of 65 years of age or older, one retired by virtue of a permanent and total disability, or a member of the National Guard or other reserves ordered to active military service for whom it would be 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 shall 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 city clerk on the prescribed form for such deferral of payment of this special assessment on his property.
