Why Did I Receive More Than One Special Assessment Notice?
Each notice informs you of a Drain Special Assessment for a different drainage district. Your property can be in multiple Drainage districts because stormwater moves from smaller watersheds through larger watersheds, ultimately discharging to the Great Lakes. For example if your property were located in a small watershed that is “nested” inside a larger watershed, you would receive an assessment for each district, should they both be assessed in the same year.
