The Special Assessment Commission only meets when the City proposes to add a new special assessment district or annually to hear objections to the level of assessment assigned to a particular property.
The purpose of this Commission is to provide a fairness standard in the treatment of property owners affected by a special assessment district. Commissioners listen to the particulars of a proposed district and determine whether the proposed special assessments are allocated fairly to each affected property owner. If they determine there are discrepancies, they may adjust assessments.
For questions about the Special Assessment Commission, please contact Assistant to City Administrator Rita Binstock at (701) 456-7720 or Rita.Binstock [at] dickinsongov.com.
