Minnesota State Statute 412.851 VACATION OF STREETS. The Council may by resolution vacate any street, alley, public grounds, public right-of-way, or any part thereof, on its own motion or on petition of a majority of the owners of land abutting the street, alley, public grounds, public way, or part thereof to be vacated. When there has been no petition, the resolution may be adopted only by a vote of our-fifths of all members of the Council. No such vacation shall be made unless it appears in the interest of the public to do so after a hearing preceded by two weeks published and posted notice. In addition, if the street, alley, public grounds, public way, or any part thereof terminates at or abuts upon any public water, no vacation shall be made unless written notice of the petition or proposed resolution is served by certified mail upon the commissioner of natural resources at least 30 days before the hearing on the matter. The notice under this subdivision is for notification purposes only and does not create a right of intervention by the commissioner of natural resources. After the resolution of vacation is adopted, the clerk shall prepare a notice of completion of the proceeding which shall contain the name of the city, an identification of the vacation, a statement of the time of completion thereof and description of real estate and lands affected thereby. The notice shall be presented to the county auditor who shall enter the same in the transfer records and note upon the instrument, over official signature, the works Aentered in the transfer record.@ The notice shall then be filed with the county recorder. Any failure to file the notice shall not invalidate any such vacation proceedings.@ 1.
