A Cost of Community Services Study for Madison Village and Township, Lake County, Ohio

At the request of Lake County Soil and Water Conservation District (LSWCD), American Farmland Trust (AFT) conducted a Cost of Community Services (COCS) study to find out the current net fiscal impact of existing land uses in Madison Village and Township in Lake County Ohio. The study analyzes revenues and expenditures on a land use basis for fiscal year 2006 (year ending December 31). It examines revenues by land use and the financial demands of public services (e.g., public works, sheriff, planning, general government) and shows the cost of providing these services to residential, commercial and industrial, farm, and forest land. This study is an update of a 1993 COCS study also done by AFT.
