Better Future

A NOTE FROM OUR CHAIRMAN:

Hello All,

 

I hope everyone is having a great summer.  As we look to the fall season we have to wonder where the summer has gone.

 

A few township projects that are getting completed:

325th St: Subcut and repair is causing 325th St and the north end of Teal Ave to be temporarily closed.

Upland Rd: Speed Limit has been reduced to 35mph. Please watch your speed in this area.

336th St: Damaged section of blacktop road will be repaired this fall.

Multiple culverts are being replaced through out the township. 

 

Thank you everyone for your patience on these projects as we try to fit them into the budget and get them completed before snow flies.

Mark Stovern

Shafer township Chairman

About Shafer township

Shafer Township is located in southeast Chisago County, bordered to the east by the city of Taylors Falls and the St. Croix River, which is the MinnesotaWisconsin border. The city of Shafer is in the southwest part of the township but an administratively separate entity. The unincorporated community of Palmdale is in the north.

U.S. Highway 8 follows most of the southern boundary of the township, turning northeast to travel to Taylors Falls, then across the river to St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin, and leading west to Lindstrom and Chisago City. State Highway 95 (MN 95) crosses the north part of the township, passing through Palmdale and leading southeast to Taylors Falls and northwest to North Branch.
