Townships busy with Board of Review

It’s March, and for townships, that usually means Board of Review meetings.

That’s the case this month in Clare County.

Boards of Review go over taxable valuations for the year.

“Usually it’s the second Monday of the month and they usually have to hold another one another day,” Clare County deputy equalization director Tina Moore said. “I think the cities can do it a little bit later.”

Once the townships complete their changes, “they bring them in to us and we make the corrections and we basically have county equalization, and that way we have all the valuations set. That way, commissioners know if the taxable value has gone up or down and how much roughly they’ll be bringing in.”

County clerk Lori Martin said she meets with township clerks the fourth Tuesday of every month.

“A lot of times it gets geared toward elections,” Martin said. “But we talk about all kinds of different issues. Since I’ve taken office, we’ve talked a lot about the elections.”
