Suppression Spray Program

Program Funding
Roscommon County’s gypsy moth suppression program is funded by a 1/4 mill property tax renewable assessment that passed August 2010 to provide gypsy moth control for the next 10 years.

A 1/4-mill is 25 cents per $1,000 of state equalized value, or $12.50 per year on a property with a taxable value of $50,000 (generally half of its market value). This money collected can not be used for any other purpose except gypsy moth suppression.
