Laraway Lake Special Assessment District (SAD)

The Township received a petition, from property owners on Laraway Lake, to make improvements to Laraway Lake, including weed control and removal, and for the cost of the improvements to be included in a special assessment against parcels of land within the district. The request was for the cost to be equally assessed against all parcels that front Laraway Lake, with the exception of vacant parcels owned by duplicate homeowners. The Township completed the SAD process in fall 2021 and the Laraway Lake SAD homeowners saw it on their taxes beginning with the Winter 2021 tax bill.
The Special Assessment District was established pursuant to Public Act 188 of the Public Acts of Michigan of 1954, as amended (the “Act” or “Act 188”).
