Scio Township Board proposes township-wide assessment to fund roadwork
The Scio Township Board will hold a public hearing on Sept. 12 to discuss a plan for a new township-wide assessment to fund additional road work, the Dexter Leader reported.
The plan is to improve ‘connector’ roads by collecting a tax of $85 per year from each property parcel owner, excluding those who live in the village of Dexter, over a 10-year period.
The proposed plan follows the board’s confirmation on Aug. 13 of levies in special assessment districts established on Newman Boulevard, at Rose Drive, in The Glade Subdivision and at Parkland Plaza, the newspaper reported.
Over a 10-year period, businesses and residents in these districts will be assessed taxes totaling around $702,000. Work could begin this fall.
