Keeping Magician Lake Healthy

May 11, 2020: SAD Update

Magician Lake Neighbors,
Please read this important update concerning the Special Assessment District (SAD) renewal for the invasive weed issues in Magician Lake. The Silver Creek Township Board has waived the normal petition process as part of the SAD renewal due to COVID-19. This means that taxpayers will not need to sign a petition this year.

This process is handled by the township. We wanted to share this message because a number of you have been asking about signing a petition based on a prior post.

The letter that Silver Creek taxpayers will receive will provide next steps in the process. Please contact the township directly if you have questions after reading the letter.

Thank you!
MLIA Board
