North Temperate Lakes LTER: Lake District Revenues 1992 - 1996

Lake District revenues record one of the primary means of action available to lake districts. These districts are a form of special purpose district created by the state of Wisconsin in the early 1970s to address the specific problems of lake mangement not being addressed by existing governmental capacities. These districts are by statute granted the authority to levy property taxes, special assessments, special charges and delinquent charges against property owners within their geographic boundaries. This fund-raising authority gives to lake districts a capacity not only to raise substantial funds but to do so consistently over time, thereby alloting to them a practical capacity not readily available to other groups (such as lake associations) involved in lake management. Data are from years 1992 - 1996. Sampling Frequency: annually Number of sites: 190
