LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Township residents urged to get involved in road issue
As a citizen of Turtle Lake Township, it is important that township citizens are aware of the direction the current board is taking:
- The township applied for two DNR grants to acquire money for paving of Lake Beltrami Road in 2014. $69,000 of State Park Funds were used to prepare the road for paving. After using the funds from the first grant, the Township Board decided to halt further work on the road, against the vote and support from the county engineer and township electorate. The board returned over $180,000 provided by the second DNR grant for paving.
I encourage township citizens to get involved. The current board is not interested in hearing the voice of its citizens.
