Do the City of Minneapolis offer any special billing programs?
In Minneapolis, as well as with many cities across the nation, unpaid amounts owed by a previous bill payer at a service address (a lien balance) remain with the property, and the new owner of that property is responsible for those charges. This is in accordance with state and city laws.
When you sell a property the realtor, buyer, or seller contacts Treasury Operations. The city reads the meter and sends a final bill to the occupant. The previous owner pays the bill or it is negotiated at the closing. The title insurance company involved with the sale might also be contacted as they sometimes check with utilities to make sure no outstanding debts are attached to the property. If there is a dispute, the new owner may be able to take legal action against the previous owner for non-payment. In most cases, this can be done through conciliation court.
The new owner is ultimately responsible for resolving the situation. Water service will not be turned off because of the former owner's outstanding debt. However, service can be discontinued if you fail to pay charges that you incur. If you cannot pay the full delinquent balance, an installment agreement may be set up.
If you can't negotiate a satisfactory installment agreement, the lien balance from the previous owner may be added to your property taxes.

Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing.
