Roscommon County is currently in the process of establishing the boundaries of a lake level special assessment district for Higgins Lake. The lake level control structure (LLCS), located where the Cut River emerges from the southern shore of Higgins Lake, is deteriorating and operation is entirely manual. This special assessment district, which will include properties with private legal access to the lake, will fund the repair, modernization and long-term maintenance of the lake level control structure, ensuring that Higgins Lake can safely be maintained at its legally established level.
Representatives from the special assessment district project will be hosting an informational webinar on April 13th, discussing lake access and the criteria for special assessment district boundaries. We invite all Higgins Lake property owners and residents to join in to learn more and ask questions.
DATE: Thursday, April 13, 2023 TIME: 6:00 PM ET REGISTRATION: bit.ly/Higgins-413
During the webinar, representatives will also provide more information on how to participate in a public survey regarding the special assessment district. This survey, which focuses on lake access for property owners, is important to help ensure that Roscommon County has accurate information for each property as we prepare the special assessment district boundaries. Residents can take the survey any time at bit.ly/Higgins-lake-level-survey. If internet access is not available, hard copies of the survey can be filled out at the Roscommon County Building, Gerrish Township Hall and Lyon Township Hall. A preview of the survey can also be viewed and downloaded below.
All surveys must be completed and submitted by Friday, May 5, 2023.
