There are upcoming opportunities for Four Lakes Special Assessment District (SAD) property owners to have a one-on-one discussion regarding their tentative operations assessment. The purpose of these sessions is to give property owners an opportunity to:
Meet with an FLTF team member or engineer
Review how your property-related benefit factors (i.e., methodology) are weighted
Review how your property's apportionment was calculated
Review your estimated annual operations assessment cost
Provide your input
FLTF may revise the tentative special assessment roll based on property owner input during the Days of Review. To clarify, these are not legal hearings, rather they are preliminary public Days of Review. No appointments are necessary and property owners may arrive at any time during the session. The Days of Review are currently scheduled as follows (please note a date change in February):
Tuesday, February 15, 2022 | 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. | Secord Township Hall
Thursday, February 17, 2022 | 4:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. | Jerome Township Hall
Tuesday, April 19, 2022 | 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. | Jerome Township Hall
Wednesday, April 20, 2022 | 4:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. | Secord Township Hall
FLTF is constructing a temporary bridge between Sanford Dam and the embankment as part of the stabilization process. The bridge will be above the water level and is movable. This temporary bridge will provide workers access to the dam and will be in place for several months. It will be removed at the completion of stabilization, later in 2022. Visitors to Sanford Village Park will be able to see the structure.
Throughout the stabilization process, residents can expect construction traffic on W. Irish St. and occasionally N. Smith St. as crews use Sanford Lake County Park property to gain access to the dam site.
