To add insult to injury, Lilac is located on the edge of what has now become Reaver territory. The people of Lilac fear that it's just a matter of time before they're attacked. Several of the major land-owners have joined together to contract with a private security firm to protect their property and lives in case of Reaver attack. That private security firm has its payroll delivered to one of the local banks. Just in case you're interested in making a withdrawal.
Lilac is also commonly referenced by con artists offering time-share vacation opportunities to people who are just as gullible as the person who first gave it its name; sure enough, there are a few time-share vacation spots here and there on Lilac, but most of them are not remotely worth even the 'discounted' prices that a share in them is offered for. This is assuming that the seller even has legitimate claim to the property.
