Special assessments are a charge to properties for the cost of making public improvement that directly benefit the properties or to recover the cost of services charges, such as:
- Unpaid garbage, sewer and/or storm drainage utility bills
For delinquent sewer and/or storm drainage utility bills, contact Shakopee Public Utilities Customer Service at 952-445-1988 to obtain any delinquent bill amounts that have not yet been levied against the property. Please make sure to request all accounts at the property address.
For delinquent garbage bills, contact Republic Services Customer Service at 952-941-5174 to obtain any delinquent garbage bill amounts that have not yet been levied against the property. Inquiries should be identified by the property address and not by owner's name.
