Maple Lake Township Board Meeting: Section of Donnelly Drive to be relocated in Township


Township Attorney Michael Couri led the discussion at the township meeting.

Township Attorney Michael Couri, Supervisor Ronald Wolf, and Chairman Gerry Giebenhain look over the map where Donnelly Drive and Dempsey Ave. NW are on Maple Lake.
After a lengthy discussion last week, including dozens of comments from concerned citizens, the Maple Lake Township Board voted to close a one-mile stretch of Donnelly Drive between Dempsey Avenue NW and Dillon Ave. NW and to re-build the road south of its current location.
The original request came from the Pribyl family, which owns many acres of land surrounding the current road. The Pribyls wanted to remove the current road to make way for an addition to be built on their home. The Prybils offered to foot the bill both for the removal of the half-mile stretch of road and for the construction of a replacement road about a quarter-mile south.

Board holds truth taxation hearing to set 2015 budget

One of the final acts of the Wright County Board of Commissioners in 2014 will be approving the final budget and draft levy for 2015. While there is still some room to shift numbers slightly downward, the expectation is that the county will have a $106.1 million budget in 2015 – an increase of 3.7 percent – and a levy of $53.1 million – a 4.9 percent increase.
The final step to getting to the end of the budget cycle was held Dec. 4 when the county hosted a Truth in Taxation hearing to get public feedback on the budgets. One thing the commissioners learned over the last few months is that they’re far from alone in making increases in the budget and levy for 2015.
