The City of Minot is in the process of creating a storm sewer special assessment district to address the street flooding issues on 10th Street SW, at its intersection with 31st Ave SW, and other areas within the watershed. If your property is located within the drainage boundary for the proposed assessment district, you should have received a letter from the City.
A figure showing the proposed assessment district boundary can be viewed here.
City staff, along with our engineering consultant Ackerman-Estvold, hosted an open house meeting on Tuesday, July 30, 2019. To view the meeting presentation, including the process for calculating the estimated assessment for your property, click here.
The project is still in the design phase, but based on preliminary engineering, it has an estimated total cost of $3.3 million. The special assessment district portion has an estimated cost of $2.3 million. Half of the special assessment district cost is paid by city storm sewer development funds and the remaining half is special assessed to the benefiting properties – the properties whose storm water will flow to the new inlets and storm sewer pipes.
