What are the advantages of forming a Zone of Benefit or Permanent Road Division?

One advantage would be that your road would be maintained on a regular, scheduled basis. This can help prevent the need for more costly repairs to the road and can also save on automobile repairs. Another advantage is that every property owner within the Zone of Benefit or Permanent Road Division must pay their share. If you are paying your share of the maintenance of your road and your neighbor is not, you are certainly paying more for road maintenance than you would have to if everybody paid. The assessment or special tax for the Zone of Benefit or Permanent Road Division is added to the property tax bills of everyone within the Zone of Division. All arrangements for the maintenance work are made by County staff from a list of qualified local contractors or on a reimbursement basis for County maintenance crews.
