Special Assessment District


White Lake property owners are a part of a Special Assessment District to cover the cost of lake services. The district is comprised of approximately 1600 property owners located on, or having deeded access to White Lake in the Townships of White Lake and Highland in Oakland County, Michigan. The Special Assessment is added to the "Winter" tax bill.

2013-2017 assessment rates are as follows:

  • Lakefront properties: $210 per year
  • Lake access properties: $25 per year
  • Commercial properties: $515 per year


This Special Assessment District is managed by the White Lake Improvement Board, which was formed over 30 years ago to improve the water quality of White Lake through managed weed control, dredging, testing, and safety efforts. (White Lake water level maintenance is covered under a different assessment.)

The White Lake Improvement Board membership consists of:

  • Highland Township Supervisor - Rick Hamill
  • White Lake Township Supervisor - Rik Kowall
  • Oakland County Commissioner - Eileen Kowall
  • Oakland County Water Resources Commissioner - Ricky DeVisch
  • White Lake Citizens League Representative - Chuck Neville
