Brandon Township Meeting, Thursday, November 21, 2019
November, 2019 PUBLIC HEARING MINUTES
The Special Assessment Hearing for the Tanglewood Road 2019 Paving Project Assessments was held on November 21, 2019, at the Brandon Community Center with Supervisor Kerby Lund, Supervisor Dennis Lund, Treasurer Kathy Zimmerman and Clerk Mike Cleary present together with the Township Engineer, Jeff Stabnow. With a quorum present, the meeting was called to order at 7:05 pm. The pledge of allegiance was recited by all.
The Clerk’s report on notices posted and letters sent was reviewed.
The Clerk distributed a schedule of the project costs and assessments. This schedule had previously been sent to the property owners with notice of this meeting. It was noted that the assessment could be paid in full or part prior to November 30, 2019 after which date the Township would be sending the assessment list to the County Auditor for inclusion in the 2020 tax statements. It was also noted that the unpaid assessment balance could also be paid down anytime during the 10-year payment period.
There were five residents present with questions and comments on the project. Their concerns were primarily on the elevation difference between the new pavement and their paved driveway resulting in drop offs. Engineer Jeff Stabnow assured them that their concerns would be corrected by the paving company in 2020 at no additional cost to the residents.
Motion by D. Lund and second by K. Lund to approve Resolution 11-21-19. Motion carried unanimously. See resolution attached.
The meeting was adjourned at 7:18 pm.
