Special Assessment Districts (SADs)

What is a SAD?

Special Assessment Districts (SADs) are designated areas where a majority of property owners agree to allow the Township to levy a property tax in exchange for improving public roads. The Township can initiate a SAD, but it is typically done by petitioning the property owners in a designated area who wish to make an authorized improvement. The Township then acts in an administrative capacity by establishing the district, gathering cost estimates and plans for the improvement, identifying financing or funding for the cost of the improvement, and levying and collecting the special assessment to pay off the associated debt.
