Hess Lake Improvement Board - HLIB
The Hess Lake Improvement Board - HLIB 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 HLIB 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 2021- May 11, 2021, 9:30am, July 13, 2021, 9:30am, September 14, 2021, 9:30am
