April 11, 2022, at 2 p.m.: There will be an FLTF board meeting (rescheduled from March 31) on behalf of the Four Lakes Special Assessment District. Topics will include review of the 2022 budget and its financing, and approval of the financial plan that was reviewed at the April 6 webinar. There will be a public comment period. This meeting will be in-person at Secord Township Hall, 1507 Secord Dam Rd, Gladwin, MI 48624.
April 19 and 20, 2022: The in-person preliminary Days of Review will continue on April 19 (Jerome Township Hall) and April 20 (Secord Township Hall). FLTF encourages you to attend and review your property with the FLTF team working on the SAD. The assessment methodology will be applied using the property tax records as provided to FLTF from each county and will be formally adopted at the Four Lakes Special Assessment Hearing in June of 2022.
June 15, 2022: Property owners who wish to combine parcels within the Special Assessment District must discuss this with your local township assessor. You must contact the assessor to understand the process for your township.
FLTF, on behalf of the SAD, will incorporate combinations into the assessment methodology provided we receive a letter from your township no later than June 15, 2022. Please submit a letter from your township indicating that your parcel combination will occur this calendar year. Letters may be mailed to FLTF at 233 E. Larkin, Ste. 2, Midland, MI 48640 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
After June 15, your portion of the project cost will be set based on current tax records and cannot be changed until the next SAD hearing in 2025. If you believe the assessment amount causes you a hardship, please email FLTF at email@example.com.
June 2022 (Date TBD): In June (date to be determined) FLTF will hold a Special Assessment hearing for property owners to appeal their portion of the Operations Assessment for 2022-2004. This hearing will not include a discussion of the Capital Assessment, or the Operations Assessment beyond the 2024 winter tax bill. Assuming a significant state grant is provided, a future special assessment hearing will be conducted, most likely in 2025, for the Capital Assessment (if any) and the Operations Assessment for 2025 and years to follow.
After this meeting, the Counties will review the rolls and assessment for approval.
