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. Please see Public Meeting Notice date, time and location of meeting listed below.
The Hess Lake Improvement Board launched a new website on September 1, 2023 that will be managed by Progressive AE. Looks like a nice website. Hess Lake Tax Payers paid $5,000 for this new website with an additional $1,500 per year maintenance fee.
