Little Library for Cloverton
Weekenders Carole and Ron Hessler built this adorable Little Library for Cloverton. People can leave a book, then take a book to read.




Meeting called to order at 1p.m. by vice-chair Dave Baker. Also present were Bob Brewster, Township Assessor, Larry Veldhouse, Pine County Assessor, Pine County Assessor, Supervisor Don Mishler and Clerk Fran Levings.

(1) Brian Mishler was the first property owner to speak to the Board. Parcel number R20.0153.002- Property on Hay Creek Road and Squib Creek Road. He questioned the valuation by saying that ½ of his land is swamp. His 40 acres are split into two parts that are not contiguous. Larry Veldhouse examined the statement and said that it already has Mr. Mishler’s property as one parcel. Bob Brewster recommended authorizing Mr. Mishler’s land as ½ swamp (low-ground)

(2) Marlene Mishler represented Pamela and Brandon Mau before the Board. Parcel # R20.0153.00. Bob Brewster said the valuation has already been dropped f rom$39,500 to $30,000. The Fire # on the statement is on by error and should be dropped as Pamela Rau does not have a fire number on her property.

(3) Dennis Welsh expressed concern about Parcel # R20.0463.00. This is a 2-acre parcel that is actually a road. Bob Brewster recommended designating 1 acre of this parcel as pasture and 1 acre of it as road. This would make the total value $1350.00 as opposed to $7900.00. Mr. Welsh also had concerns about Parcel # R20.416.00 claiming it was almost all swamp. Bob Brewster said he would change the designation to 10 acres of high ground and 30 acres of low ground. Mr. Welsh also questioned the school district levy. Larry Veldhouse explained that the levy was passed 2 days prior to the new policy that seasonal residents would not have to pay any school taxes.

(4) Letter from Clyde Stephens, Jr. regarding Parcel # R20.0508.00 on the Rash Road. He owns 2 acres and claims is only has a primitive hunting shack and is not worth between $4 and $5 thousand dollars. He never plans to sell the land, it will stay in their family. Mr. Brewster and Mr. Veldhouse the valuation is less than a DNR lease and recommended leaving the valuation as it is.

Motion by Dave Baker, second by Don Mishler, to accept the following recommendations made by Mr. Brewster and Mr. Veldhouse:

(1) Change Brian Mishler’s statement to ½ low and high ground each.

(2) No problem with Marlene Mishler’s statement. She had the wrong sheet with her.

(3) Change the 2-acre road of Mr. Welsh to 1 acre pasture and 1 acre road.

(4) Leave Mr. Stephen’s valuation as it is.


Meeting adjourned at 2:54 p.m.

Fran Levings, Clerk
