appropriate governmental authority must be apportioned to the governmental subdivision
entitled to it;

282.019, subdivision 5, representing increased value due to response actions taken after

the agency or the commissioner of agriculture and deposited in the fund from which the
expenses were paid;

against the parcel for drainage or other purpose whether due or deferred at the time of
forfeiture, must be apportioned to the governmental subdivision entitled to it; and
