Hess Lake Board

The Hess Lake Board consists of five people. These five people have legal authority to make decisions on behalf of lake residents, including taxing authority for any lake project they deem necessary. The three lake representatives are appointed positions, with the other two elected. Please see the attached PDF for a complete description of the HLB responsibilities. I would encourage lake residents to attend the three yearly meetings plus any special meetings. The meetings are held at the Newaygo County Drain Commissioner’s office in White Cloud, MI, 306 North St. 49349.


Meeting dates for 2020- Monday, May 18 at 10am, Monday, July 13 at 10am, Thursday, September 17 at 10am-Special Zoom Meeting
