What is an Annual Town Meeting?
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. Township Day's annual meeting is a great place to talk about the future of your community and work with other residents in deciding how to meet those needs.
The elected officers will provide a proposed budget and levy for the voters to discuss and vote on.
Orrock Township is responsible for approximately forty-five (45) miles of roadways. Residents shall NOT attempt to stop equipment operators, approach snow removal equipment or impede snow removal in any manner. Stopping plows to discuss your concerns is counter-productive to getting the 45 miles of Town roads cleared, a safety hazard to you, the plow operator and the traveling public.
Concerns about the manner in which the road is being plowed, delivery of ice control products or other comments are to be directed to the Town’s Road Authority.
The four public compost sites located in Sherburne County are now gated and locked and require all users to obtain a key-card to access each site. All residents of Sherburne County are eligible to obtain a free key-card.
You may pick up your free key-card at one of the following locations:
Becker City Hall
Big Lake City Hal
