Our Journey Through The Special Assessment District (SAD) Process

Member Meeting Regarding the SAD With a Very Large Turn-Out

A Special Assessment District (SAD) was levied in 2013 for the purpose of eradicating/controlling aquatic invasives in Six Mile Lake.  The initial (5) year term of the SAD ends in early 2018, and then continues on an annual basis. PLM is our lake management company, who performs regular surveys and treatments.

While other lakes and communities struggle around us over this same issue, we have the luxury of enjoying a lake that might have a very different look today but for the actions of a couple of very astute board members who identified the noxious weed back in 2007.  Due to the action of the association and lake property owners, the SAD was established.

Below are references to how we made this long and difficult journey through this process.  Our situation is unique in that our lake lies in two counties (Antrim and Charlevoix) and two townships (Echo and South Arm).
