After such time, you may pay to the County Auditor the entire amount of the assessment remaining unpaid, plus the interest accrued to December 31st of the year in which such payment is made.

Such payment to the County must be made before November 15th or interest will be charged through December 31st of the succeeding year. The unpaid balance of any assessment will be levied by Brown County and will be collected as an assessment on your property tax statement over a ten (10) year period along with a 5.5% percent simple interest charge on the unpaid balance.

Under Minnesota Statutes 435.193 to 435.195 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 for whom it would be a hardship to make these payments. When deferment of the special assessment has been granted and is terminated for any reason provided by law, all amounts accumulated plus applicable interest become due.

Any assessed property owner meeting the requirements of this law and City Code Section 2.80 adopted under it may, within 30 days of the confirmation of the assessment apply to the Finance Director on such forms as are prescribed by the County Auditor for such deferral of payment of this special assessment on his property.
