Baileyville Holds Taxes for Second Year

By Kaileigh Deacon

 

At the Baileyville Town Council meeting on Monday, November 27, the council met and discussed the tax commitment for the upcoming year. The council unanimously approved holding the mil rate steady for the second year in a row at 16.7. 

The town council also unanimously approved the liquor license for the Spednic Club as well as the beano/bingo application for the St. Croix Masonic Association. A public hearing and the second reading of proposed shore land zone amendments was postponed until December. 

The new railing at the Town Office has been installed by Superior Fence Company. The portable classroom at the high school has been put out to bid twice by the school department with no takers. The Public Works Department offered the portable classroom to the Princeton Airport Authority who didn’t have a use for it. Councilor Tim Call suggested they look into how much it would cost to move it out to the landfill and go from there. 

During the public comments, a Baileyville school parent brought before the council an issue with the Junior High Basketball program. The parent’s issue was that kids from Woodland schools were not being selected for the team while students from Princeton and Indian Township were. The council advised the parent to take his concerns before the school board who could better address the issues. 

New Baileyville Town Manager Christopher Loughlin started in Baileyville on Monday, December 4th. The next Town Council Meeting will be held on December 11 at 5:30 at the town office.
