CITY OF DASSEL
PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
NOTICE OF CITY COUNCIL HEARING TO CONSIDER ASSESSMENT
AGAINST 520 SIMON AVENUE THE COSTS INCURRED BY THE CITY IN
ABATING A PUBLIC NUISANCE ON THAT PROPERTY
The Dassel City Council will hold a hearing on Tuesday, February 21, 2023, commencing at 7:00 p.m., at the City Hall Community Room, 460 Third Street North, Dassel, Minnesota. The purpose of the hearing is to determine whether, pursuant to Minnesota Statutes §429.101 and §429.061, and Dassel City Ordinance §92.29(A), (B), the city shall proceed with assessing the property located at 520 Simon Avenue, Dassel, a/d/a Lot 7 of the Southside Addition to the City of Dassel, the costs incurred by the city in abating a public nuisance that had existed on that property for an extended period of time, and if so the amount and terms of the assessment.
The nature of the improvement to the property at 520 Simon Avenue is the abatement of a public nuisance that the Meeker County District Court, following a hearing, determined to be a Public Nuisance, noting that “unsanitary and dilapidated conditions have developed on the property and have continued to exist for several months thereby creating a hazard or risk of public safety or health.”
The Order of the District Court further provided that “All costs and expenses incurred by the City of Dassel caused by the abatement of the Public Nuisance may be…assessed against the property located at 520 Simon Avenue, Dassel, Minnesota.”
The total amount of the proposed assessment is $6,430.00. The proposed assessment roll is on file with the clerk. Written or oral objections thereto by the property owner will be considered.
The owner may potentially appeal an assessment to district court pursuant to Minnesota Statutes § 429.081 by serving notice of appeal upon the mayor or clerk of the City of Dassel within 30 days after the adoption of the assessment and filing such notice with the district court within ten days after service on the mayor or clerk.
However, no appeal may be taken as to the amount of the assessment adopted 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.
