WILMA TOWNSHIP BOARD OF REVIEW AND EQUALIZATION, WED., APRIL 24, 2013
Chairman Glen Williamson called the Board of Review to order at 1 p.m. with the Pledge of Allegiance. Also present Supervisor Gary Vink, Clerk Paul Raymond, County Assessor Kelly Schroeder and Wilma Assessor Robert Brewster, and Joseph Vink. Paul read the record of the 2012 Board of Equalization. Gary moved to approve; Glen seconded.
There were no letters. Joseph Vink asked about parcel 32.00079, the site of the Duxbury Store and the Vink home. The description on his tax form was cut off at the point where it said “excluding…” Bob explained that the description was too long to fit on the paper, so it just got cut off. They went on line with Glen’s phone and antenna to reach the store Wi-fi to look up the legal description. The 2.8 acres on the southwest corner of section 9 is 20 rods (330’) wide, west to east measured from the center of Tamarack River Road, and 16 rods (264’) from the center of Duxbury Road to the Pletcher’s and the Town Hall’s property line north. Joe’s property runs 150’ north and 165’ east. Pletcher’s is 114’ north to the property line. West to east, Duane Winglike owns the 84 feet running east of the store, and the township owns the last 81’. Both Glienke’s and the township’s land runs the full 16 rods north, 264’. Joe said that the township purchased 21’ from Mike Glienke, but it is unclear if the 84’ reflects the dimension before or after that sale. Joe said the county will have the deed and description of this sale. Vink’s and Pletcher’s total one acre, and Glienke’s and the townships total one acre. Joe said his only concern is that he was being taxed for part of Pletcher’s property. Kelly said they have the accurate description and he is not.
Gary Vink brought parcel 32.0081, the south farm property that is still in Beverly Vink’s name. Gary said he wanted to have it appraised as residential homestead as he is living in the trailer there. Kelly said the Board wouldn’t rule on that, but Gary can go to the county to have it changed to homestead status.
No other appeals. Gary moved to adjourn; Glen seconded. Meeting adjourned at 1:40 p.m. Paul Raymond, Clerk
