street maintenance plan that identifies the location of the municipal street maintenance
district and identifies and estimates the costs of the proposed maintenance during the
proposed period of collection of municipal street maintenance fees, which must be for
a period of at least five years and at most 20 years. Notice of a public hearing on the
proposed plan must be given by mail to all affected landowners at least 30 days before
the hearing and posted for at least 30 days before the hearing. At the public hearing, the
governing body must present the plan and all affected landowners in attendance must have
the opportunity to comment before the governing body considers adoption of the plan.

maintenance fee by ordinance. The ordinance must not be voted on or adopted until after
public notice is provided and a public hearing is held in the same manner as provided in
subdivision 4.

Not exclusive means of financing maintenance.

The use of the municipal
street maintenance fee by a municipality does not restrict the municipality from imposing
other measures to pay the costs of local street maintenance, except that a municipality
must not impose special assessments for projects funded with street maintenance fees.

Subd. 9.

Undeveloped parcels; fees.

A municipality may not impose a street
maintenance fee on any undeveloped parcel located within an established street
maintenance district until at least three years after either the date of substantial completion

other obligations to provide funds to implement the council's transit capital improvement
program and to refund bonds issued under this subdivision.

(b) The bonds shall be sold, issued, and secured in the manner provided in chapter

by the council with a corporate trustee within or outside the state, which shall define the
revenues and bond proceeds pledged for the payment and security of the bonds. The
pledge shall be a valid charge on the revenues received by the council under section
299A.9925. Neither the state, nor any municipality or political subdivision except the
council, nor any member or officer or employee of the council, is liable on the obligations.
No mortgage of or security interest in any tangible real or personal property shall be
granted to the bondholders or the trustee, but they shall have a valid security interest in the
revenues and bond proceeds received by the council and pledged to the payment of the
bonds. In the bond resolution or trust indenture, the council may make such covenants as
it determines to be reasonable for the protection of the bondholders, including a covenant
to issue general obligation bonds to refund the revenue bonds if and to the extent required
to pay principal and interest on the bonds.
