                        CHAPTER 217-S.F.No. 826 
           An act relating to counties; allowing counties to 
          impose fees or interest on late payments; amending 
          Minnesota Statutes 1992, section 373.41. 
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1992, section 373.41, is 
amended to read: 
    373.41 [MISCELLANEOUS FEES.] 
    The county may charge a fee to record, file, certify, or 
provide copies of any instrument, document, or paper that is 
required by law to be filed or which may be filed in any county 
office.  The county may charge fees for service provided by any 
county office, official, department, court, or employee.  The 
county board may, after a public hearing, establish the amounts 
of fees to be charged for the services, unless a statute has 
specified the amount.  There must be a reasonable relation 
between the fee and the cost of providing the service.  A county 
may also impose a fee or an interest charge on payments of money 
to the county that are more than 90 days overdue, provided that 
late property tax payments remain subject only to the penalty 
and interest provisions of chapters 277 and 279.
