All property owners in the Four Lakes Special Assessment District should receive a letter in the mail from FLTF by the first week of February. The purpose of the letter is to inform property owners of upcoming opportunities to have a one-on-one discussion regarding your tentative special assessment via the Preliminary Days of Review. The letter also shares information regarding the special assessment hearing and appeal process.
Four Lakes Special Assessment District (SAD) property owners are invited to meet one-on-one with an FLTF team member or engineer to discuss their estimated annual operations assessment, property-related benefit factors, and their property's apportionment calculation.
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.
