Lake Michigan Water Project Update


On June 11, the Lake County Board approved an ordinance proposing the formation of a Special Service Area (SSA) to fund the project to bring Lake Michigan water supply to the water systems serving the parcels within the SSA.

The proposing ordinance set the date for a public hearing be held on Tuesday, August 13 starting at 6 p.m. at the Lehmann Mansion 485 N. Milwaukee Ave., Lake Villa and establishes the maximum bond amount of $46 million. At the public hearing, the Lake County Board will consider the establishment of the SSA and hear public comment.

The public hearing will allow residents within the affected area an opportunity to make any comments about the formation of the SSA and the water project.

Residents included in the SSA will receive a formal notice in the mail in July containing the public hearing details. Should you have questions regarding this process, please contact Heather Galan of Lake County Public Works at 874-377-7500.
