THE MONEY IS USED FORlake weed control and water quality testing, dredging and engineering studies, Marine Sheriff patrols, and legal/administrative fees (public hearings, mailings, etc.). Any new uses must be approved at a public hearing.
THE MONEY IS MANAGED BYthe White Lake Improvement Board (WLIB), consisting of the White Lake and Highland Township Supervisors, an Oakland County Commissioner, a representative of the Oakland County Water Resources Commissioner, and a representative from the White Lake Citizens League.
