By now affected property owners should have received their note from the Watershed District showing the potential benefits for the continuation of the petition submitted in 2019 by the Koronis Lake Association to the North Fork Crow River Watershed District (petition available at NFCRWD website) on your behalf to manage the Aquatic Invasive Species problems related to Lake Koronis. Note that the Engineers Report and the Appraisers Report with the full list of property tax assessments around the lake are available as public documents on the North Fork Crow River Watershed District website. (On the NFCRWD website, under Lakes, under Koronis Lake Project, under Documents the three reports can be found.)
We understand there is some concern with the potential fifteen year project time span. The project has the goal of bringing the intrusion of Starry Stonewort under control. The annual cost is projected to be approximately $171,180 (accounts for annual inflation). The annual property assessment is based on this annual amount. There will be periodic project reassessment based on amount and type of treatment and revenue adjustments made accordingly. Section 3.1 of the engineer’s report states treatment alternatives were “evaluated for a 15-year life-cycle cost for long term comparison and budgetary planning.” The actual project length could well be shorter..
