The total cost of the improvement is $2,098,464.00 and the total cost to be assessed is $158,715.80.  Assessments shall be payable in equal annual installments extending over a period of 15 years, the first of the installments to be payable on or before the first Monday in January, 2022, and shall bear interest at the rate of 3.13 percent per annum from the date of the adoption of the assessment resolution.
You may at any time prior to certification of the assessment to the County Auditor on November 30th, pay the entire assessment on such property, with interest accrued to the date of payment, to the Clerk of the City of Winsted. No interest shall be charged if the entire assessment is paid within 30 days from the adoption of this assessment. You may at any time, thereafter, pay to the McLeod County Auditor-Treasurer the entire amount of the assessment remaining unpaid, with interest accrued to December 31 of the year in which such payment is made. The payment must be made before November 15th or interest will be charged through December 31 of the succeeding year. If you decide not to prepay the assessment before the date given above the rate of interest that will apply is 3.13% percent per year. The right to partially prepay the assessment has been established by ordinance and is available.
The proposed assessment roll is on file for public inspection at the City Clerk’s office. The total amount of the proposed assessment is $158,715.80 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 City Clerk prior to the assessment hearing or presented to the presiding officer at 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.
Under Minnesota State Statute §§ 435.193 to 435.195, the Winsted City Council may, in its discretion, defer the payment of this special assessment for any homestead property to certain classes of individuals defined in the statute whom it would be a hardship to make the payments.  However, the City has not established any deferment ordinance or resolution pursuant to those Sections and therefore no deferment of payments is authorized.
An owner may appeal an assessment to district court pursuant to Minn. Stat. § 429.081 by serving notice of the appeal upon the mayor or clerk of the city 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 clerk.
