PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that the Township Board has received plans showing the proposed aquatic plant control project, associated activities, any proposed improvements and locations thereof, together with an estimate of the cost of the project. The Township Board proposes to renew said special assessment district and to carry any collected but unused remaining funds in the existing Round Lake Special Assessment into the new district.
PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that the Township Board has placed the project plans and costs estimates on file with the Township Clerk and said plans, cost estimates and special assessment district may be examined at the Clerk’s office from the date of this Notice to the date of the public hearing and may further be examined at such public hearing.
PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that the Township Board proposes to make a per-parcel/per house special assessment each year for a period of five years (2020 – 2024 inclusive) in an amount to be determined periodically, which amount will be based on the scope of work planned for that year. The annual assessment is proposed to range between $26,000 to $29,000 per year, which will be split between all of the parcels in the district. Additionally, the Township Board reserves the right to not levy an assessment or to levy a lesser assessment amount in any year that there are more funds in the special assessment fund than the amount needed for that year’s aquatic plant control work and associated activities. The Township Board proposes to annually assess benefited properties for the costs of the aquatic plant control project (with associated activities), with only published notice each year, unless the amount to be specially assessed increases by more than 10% in any one year. If the amount to be specially assessed increases by more than 10% in any one year, then mailed notices of the public hearing on the reassessment would be provided to owners of record of property to be specially assessed. PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that a public hearing on the plans, district, and cost estimates for the 2020-2024 Round Lake Aquatic Weed Control Special Assessment District will be held at the Keeler Township Hall at 64121 Territorial Road W, Hartford, MI 49057 commencing at 7:30 p.m. on July 7, 2020 (**see below).
At the hearing, the Board will consider any written objections and comments to any of the foregoing matters which are filed with the clerk at or before the hearing, and any objections or comments raised at the hearing; and at the hearing (or any adjournment of the hearing which may be made without further notice), the township board may revise, correct, amend or change the plans, cost estimates or special assessment district.
PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that if written objections to the project are filed with the Township Board at or before the hearing, signed by the record owners of land constituting more than 20% of the area within the proposed special assessment district, then the township board may not proceed unless petitions in support of the project, signed by record owners of more than 50% of the area to be made into a special assessment district, are filed with the township. Written comments or objections may be filed with the clerk at the address set out below.
PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that appearance and protest at the public hearing is required in order to appeal the amount of the special assessment to the State Tax Tribunal within 30 days after the special assessment roll is confirmed.
An owner or party in interest, or his or her agent, may appear in person at the hearing to protest the special assessment, or shall be permitted to file at or before the hearing his or her appearance or protest by letter and his or her personal appearance shall not be required. All interested persons are invited to be present in person or by representative and to submit comments concerning the establishment of the special assessment district, the plans, and cost estimates.
PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that if the township board determines to proceed with the special assessments, it will cause a special assessment roll to be prepared and another hearing will be held, after notice to record owners of property proposed to be specially assessed, to hear public comments concerning the proposed special assessments.
Keeler Township will provide necessary reasonable auxiliary aids and services, such as signers for the hearing impaired and audio tapes of printed material being considered at the hearing, to individuals with disabilities at the hearing upon four (4) days’ notice to the Keeler Township Clerk. Individuals with disabilities requiring auxiliary aids or services should contact the Keeler Township Clerk.
