Dave Wolfe - Kalkaska Township Trustee

To the  Editor:

Among the advantages listed were “Elimination of dual taxes with Kalakska Township; Elimination of expenses related to supporting two governments; Allow officials to spend tax revenue on city specific projects rather than also supporting township initiatives.” The village currently levies summer tax of 14.6140 mils for operations and streets.
