Changes to the Brown County Drainage Guidelines:

Once the assessments are approved billings are forwarded to landowners based on these guidelines:

  • Landowners that have less than a $5 assessment will not be assessed.
  • Landowners will be given a period of 60 days to pay assessment billings in full with no interest.
  • Landowners who do not pay in full have the following options:
    • Divide the assessment into two (2) installments on the following year’s tax billing. Interest would be applied at the rate determined annually by the county drainage authority.
    • Landowners assessed over $1,000 on an individual drainage system have the option to amortize the assessment for three (3) years with an interest rate determined annually by the county drainage authority.
    • Landowners assessed over $3,000 on an individual drainage system have the option to amortize the assessment for five (5) years with an interest rate determined annually by the county drainage authority.
