Washtenaw County again reduced the North Lake Special Assessment District (SAD) rates by fifty percent in our winter tax bill that was paid at the beginning of 2016.  This was due to savings realized in the weed control program and associated costs.  The county is limited by law on how much excess funds it can carryover from one term to the next.  The SAD collects about $50,000 per year in assessments.  The fund had a carryover from previous years making the reduction possible.  The current special assessment district expires with the winter 2016-17 tax bill, however the treatment will continue at least through 2017 as funds are collected in advance.


The savings were $110 for lakefront properties, $70 for normal lake access parcels, and $35 for North Lake Farms properties.  A sincere thank-you to the North Lake volunteers who help hold down these costs by their contributions of time and expertise.
