It was clarified that the SSA mentioned in the minutes of March 7, 2016 stand for Special Service Areas.

The SSA assessments pay off the municipal bonds that are issued to pay for the infrastructure. A Special Service Area can include a neighborhood, an entire subdivision, or an entire village. Nicki Sullivan had a discussion regarding SSA with Chuck Bartels, District 10, Lake County Board Member, following the WSP Annual Meeting. She will forward the information she has received from Mr. Bartels to the WSPC Board of Directors to review and discuss.
