SSD tar road damages – There is road damages to each SSD road (Sioux Hills, 196th RD, Tulip Ct, Koglin, 209th, Skyview, Judson, 205th Dr, 205 CT etc.) and Acoma selected Bertram Asphalt to repair the damages, on your behalf, before November 1, 2023.
Subordinate Service District (SSD) – In layman words, means that residents petitioned Acoma Township to provide tar on their road. This was done with the agreement that the cost to put the tar on the road would be paid for by the residents along that road and that any cost to repair the tar was also the responsibility of the residents. This was for township roads and not county roads.
You may have purchased a home or lot along one of these roads without understanding or the knowledge that the costs for the tar road is your responsibility.
Acoma Township has acted as your agent to oversee the tar on the roads, get quotes, oversee the contractors work and provided billing statements to each resident. The new plan includes a yearly SSD tar road tax, starting in 2024, to cover the costs of all SSD roads.
The plan is for the current repairs but it also covers: how it will be paid for, how much is required now, how much is required in the future. Please plan to attend one of these meetings when we announce them.
Quade Dam – When the dam was installed there was a specific height in which the top of the dam was to be set at which in turn sets the maximum height of the water behind the dam. This was agreed to by all entities when the permit was applied for. Sometime after the original installation of the dam, a board was added to the top of the dam which increased the dam height and thus the height of the water. Acoma Township had already built 196th St and set the culvert thus adding any height to the dam would have an effect on the road. Acoma Township is seeking to have the board removed so it meets the original permitted level and design.
Policies – Acoma Township has gone through a process of writing policies so we have a standard to follow. We plan to review each one before they are approved.
200th Street Bridge – The bridge was installed last year and the new bridge is a cement bridge.
