Certification Process

Delinquent utility service charges left unpaid by current or former customers along with associated administrative fees, plus interest, may become a lien on the property served and be certified to Anoka County to be collected with next year’s property taxes.

Notices are mailed on or before October 1 each year for accounts with delinquent balances owing on charges billed through July 31 of the current year. If the delinquent balances are not cleared, the amounts are sent for certification to the property taxes.
