Rochester, MN (KROC AM News)  -  A Rochester nursing home is formally challenging the city’s assessment for the North Broadway reconstruction project.

Samaritan Bethany has filed the assessment appeal in Olmsted County Court.

The $220,000 assessment was approved last month by the City Council. During a public hearing before the vote was taken a Bethany representative indicated an appeal would be filed if a lower assessment was not worked out.

The city is expected to soon award a bid for the project, which has an estimated cost of $19.2-million. The project includes the section of North Broadway between Civic Center Dr. and Silver Lake.
