Public Hearing of Special Assessment:  Thursday October 5, 2017 6:00 pm at Laketon Township Hall.

The Public Hearing of Special Assessment was recessed and will reconvene on Thursday October 26, 2017 at 6:00 pm at Laketon Township Hall.

The Public Hearing of Special Assessment reconvened and the Board confirmed the special assessment roll.  The final approved documents (map, list of properties without owner names and 5 yr budget) are posted below.  If you look at the list of properties, you will see 4 properties that are grayed out with no assessment - these are properties owned by the Township and the City - they cannot legally be assessed.  However, each municipality has agreed to contribute voluntarily and you will see those amounts on the budget sheet.

If you have any questions, please call BLLB Chairperson Kim Arter 231-744-2454.

The minutes of the public hearing will be posted after the BLLB approves them, which will be on the agenda for the December 7, 2017 meeting.

The original & revised proposed documents are still posted below in PDF for reference.
