      The Day of Review is an opportunity to review the Ross Drain Drainage District boundaries and
      apportionment of benefit with the Drain Commissioner or staff member. A map can be found attached to this notice.
      The Drain Commissioner, engineers and/or other staff members will be available to assist
      individuals throughout the day and make revisions where necessary. There is no need to schedule
      an appointment for a specific time on the Day of Review. The computation of costs for the Drain
      will also be available at the Day of Review. Drain assessments are collected in the same manner
      as property taxes and will appear on your winter tax bill. If drain assessments are being collected
      for more than one (1) year, you may pay the assessment in full with any interest to date at any
      time and avoid further interest charges.
      Persons with disabilities needing accommodations for effective participation in the Day of
      Review should contact the Drain Commission Office at the number noted above (voice) or
      through the Michigan Relay Center at 7-1-1 (TDD) at least 24 hours in advance of the Day of
      Review to request mobility, visual, hearing or other assistance.
      You may appeal the Drain Commissioner’s decision to revise the district boundary to the Mason
      County Circuit Court within ten (10) days, and you may also appeal the determination of
      apportionments to the Mason County Probate Court within ten (10) days.

      Social distancing will be enforced and wearing of face mask or face shield is mandated by the Governor of Michigan.

      This meeting is open to the public.
