Village establishes backup SSA for The Landings
The Village Board on Jan. 6 approved a measure to establish a back-up special service area (SSA) for The Landings commercial development on Route 47.
The establishment of the back-up SSA, a common practice in Sugar Grove, is in case the property owners association of a residential or commercial development fails to maintain the various public and common areas improvement items.
The ordinance allows the village to levy an annual tax at up to $1.50 per $100 of the equalized assessed valuation to use for the necessary maintenance.
