WRIGHT COUNTY
STATE OF MINNESOTA
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
REGARDING PROPOSED PROPERTY TAX ABATEMENT
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Board of Commissioners of Wright County, State of Minnesota (the “County”), will hold a public hearing on Tuesday November 19, 2019 at approximately 9:45 A.M. in the Board Chambers at the County Government Center, 10 2nd Street NW in Buffalo, Minnesota, on the proposal that the County abate property taxes levied by the County on the property proposed for development by Rice Companies. The property in the City of Otsego, Minnesota consists of parcel numbers 118-500-221203; 118-257-000010; 118-257-000020; 118-257-001010; 118-257-001020; 118-500-221205; and 118-500-221206. The proposed tax abatement program would establish an abatement of a portion of the increase in property taxes caused by development of the property to finance and provide public infrastructure. The total amount of the tax abatement by the County is estimated to be $400,000 based on eligible development costs, estimated values of the new development, and current property tax rates.
All interested persons may appear at the November 19, 2019 public hearing and present their views orally or in writing. Following the public hearing, the Board of Commissioners will take action concerning the adoption or rejection of the proposed tax abatement program.

Such assessment is proposed to 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 2020, and will bear interest at the rate of 2 percent per annum from the date of the adoption of the assessment resolution. To the first installment shall be added interest on the entire assessment from the date of the assessment resolution until December 31, 2020. To each subsequent installment when due shall be added interest for one year on all unpaid installments.
You may at any time prior to certification of the assessment to the county auditor, pay the entire assessment on such property, with interest accrued to the date of payment, to the City Administrator of Waverly. 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 city administrator the entire amount of the assessment remaining unpaid, with interest accrued to December 31 of the year in which such payment is made. Such payment must be made before November 15 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 2 percent per year. The right to partially prepay the assessment according to city policy is available.

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 municipal administrator 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 Minn. Stat. §§ 435.193 to 435.195 and city policy, the council may, in its discretion, defer the payment of this special assessment for any homestead property owned by a person 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 a hardship to make the payments. When deferment of the special assessment has been granted and is terminated for any reason provided in that law and Ordinance (Resolution), all amounts accumulated plus applicable interest become due. Any assessed property owner meeting the requirements of this law and city policy, may, within 30 days of the confirmation of the assessment, apply to the city clerk for the prescribed form for such deferral of payment of this special assessment on his/her property.
If an assessment is contested or there is an adjourned hearing, the following procedure will be followed:
1. The city will present its case first by calling witnesses who may testify by narrative or by examination, and by the introduction of exhibits. After each witness has testified, the contesting party will be allowed to ask questions. This procedure will be repeated with each witness until neither side has further questions.
2. After the city has presented all its evidence, the objector may call witnesses or present such testimony as the objector desires. The same procedure for questioning of the city’s witnesses will be followed with the objector’s witnesses.
3. The objector may be represented by counsel.
4. Minnesota rules of evidence will not be strictly applied; however, they may be considered and argued to the council as to the weight of items of evidence or testimony presented to the council.
5. The entire proceedings will be video- and audio-recorded.
6. At the close of presentation of evidence, the objector may make a final presentation to the council based on the evidence and the law. No new evidence may be presented at this point.
