Elections


Township Day:  March 13, 2018

Every year Minnesota townships are required to have an "Annual Town Meeting." It is held the second Tuesday of March. It is a true form of direct democracy, encouraging all members of the community to participate.

On Tuesday March 13, 2018 Star Lake Township conducted its Annual Election and Annual Meeting.

Two Supervisor positions were elected as follows:

  • Supervisor 1 - Keith Aune received 19 votes for a one year term (2018 - 2019), completing the unserved year of that position caused by the resignation of Ron Peterson last summer.
  • Supervisor 2 - Lee Mindemann received 20 votes for a standard three year term (2018 - 2021).

Significant proceedings during the Annual Meeting were:

  • An interesting and informative presentation on a new noxious weed threat - "Palmer Amaranth" by the County Soil & Water District,
  • Township voters unanimously approved the boards recommendation of no change to the current tax levy or $173,200.
  • Next years Annual Meeting was approved for 8:15 P.M., March 12, 2019 at the Star Lake Town Hall.
