The assessor’s office houses a complete file for each property in the township, detailing all aspects of its lot and any improvements that have been made. To ensure accuracy when buildings are constructed, staff members visit sites as well as review blueprints to document every detail about that property.
Keeping Our Roads Safe
Currently the township still has about 6.0 miles of gravel roads. The Township has nine bridges. We are fortunate that when bridge repair or replacement is necessary that state and federal funds are available to offset some of the cost. A similar source of funds is not available for road maintenance. The current tax rate allows the Township Highway Road Fund to resurface about 1.7 miles of linear miles. The average recommended life of a roadway is seldom over ten years.
If you have a road surface concern, you should contact the Highway Commissioner at the addresses listed below, so that we are aware of your concern and can check it out. The Township Highway District aggressively pursues any appropriate grant monies to offset the cost to local tax payers.
