NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, that the City Council of the City of Lester Prairie will hold a public hearing on proposed special assessments for unpaid bills:  water, sewer, garbage, and lawn mowing services.  Such hearing will be held at the city hall in the City of Lester Prairie, McLeod County, State of Minnesota, on November 9th, 2021 at 7:00 p.m.
Total amount of proposed assessments for all parcels is $6,257.97.  The proposed assessment roll showing the amount of the assessment against each individual parcel is on file with the City Clerk and is open to public inspection during normal office hours of the City Clerk.
At a hearing, written or oral objections to the proposed special assessments by any property owner will be considered.  No appeal may be taken as to the amount of any assessment unless a written objection signed by the affected property owner is filed with the City Clerk prior to the assessment hearing.  An owner may appeal an assessment to District Court pursuant to Minnesota Statutes 429.081 by service notice of appeal upon the Mayor or City Clerk of the Municipality within 30 days after the adoption of the assessment and by filing such notice with the District Court of McLeod County within 10 days after service of the notice of appeal upon the Mayor or Clerk.  Minnesota Statutes 435.193 through 435.195 authorize a municipality to defer payment of assessments against homestead property owned by persons over the age of 65 years and older who are retired because of permanent and total disability under circumstances where it would be a hardship for such persons to make the assessment payments.
