What is a drain assessment?
County drainage districts are separate public corporations with their own financial records. Each drainage district is supported by a Drain Special Assessment that covers the cost of maintaining the drainage system. County drains are not maintained by Clinton County general fund taxes. It becomes necessary to assess the properties and public corporations within the drainage district when the fund balance becomes insufficient to cover the costs of maintenance and improvements on the drain.
