Annual Assessment Reduction Maybe Coming From MWCD in a Couple of Years

From the Free Press Standard:
A plan is being developed that could lead to reductions in the annual assessment paid to the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District (MWCD) by the owners of nearly 500,000 parcels of property. 
Following a recent two-day planning session, members of the MWCD Board of Directors requested the MWCD staff develop concepts for review and discussion over the next few months that will guide reductions in the assessment based on the amounts of oil and gas royalty revenues received by the MWCD from Utica Shale operations. No action is expected to be taken until later this year or next year and the earliest the MWCD expects any assessment reduction could be implemented will be for collections in 2015, said John M. Hoopingarner, MWCD executive director/secretary. 
The MWCD updated member judges of the Conservancy Court about the plan during the Court’s annual session scheduled held in the Tuscarawas County Courthouse at New Philadelphia, Hoopingarner said. By law, any reduction in the assessment is subject to the review and consideration of the MWCD Board of Directors, but Hoopingarner said it is important to provide information to the Court’s 18 judges, as well.
