Special Assessment Information

Lake management projects are not funded by Washtenaw County general fund taxes. Each lake management project is supported by a special assessment that covers the cost of evaluating and treating the lake. Property owners in the area surrounding the lake receive a special assessment on their winter tax bill to help pay for the lake management activities. In this way, everyone who benefits from the lake improvement project helps to pay for the associated costs.
