Mark your calendar for Township Day on March 12

Residents of Minnesota's 1,781 townships have the unique opportunity to

participate Township Day on Tuesday, March 12.

The annual meeting on Township Day is what really sets townships apart from other forms of local government. At this meeting, residents have a direct voice in how the township will be run and will vote on a variety of matters, including the amount they will pay in taxes the following year.

Please plan on participating in grassroots government on Tuesday, March 12.

Township residents can find the location and time of their annual meeting by checking their local newspaper for the published notice or by contacting

their township clerk.
