WYANET — The Wyanet Township annual town meeting took place Tuesday night. LeRoy Olson was the moderator of the meeting. There were 11 residents of the township in attendance.
Township Supervisor Shelley Teske spoke during the meeting about the proposition to increase the roads and bridge tax rate from 0.165 percent to the maximum rate of 0.290 percent on taxable property.
“I’ve been approached by several people that were confused by the proposition,” Teske said.
“I want it on record to show that the purpose of the proposition is to increase the road and bridge tax rate, but then the town fund tax rate will be lowered. There will be no tax increase,” she said.
The proposition passed, 10-1. All registered voters in the township were invited to attend the meeting and vote on the proposition, according to Teske.
During the meeting, the 2017 annual town meeting minutes and 2018 financial reports were read and approved.
It was also approved to transfer excess funds in the amount of $25,000 from the town funds to the road district funds.
The next Wyanet Township annual town meeting will take place at 6:45 p.m. April 9, 2019, in the Wyanet Village Hall.
