Welcome to

SHAFER
TOWNSHIP

Working together for a
Better Future

A NOTE FROM OUR CHAIRMAN:

Hi everyone,

 

I hope everyone had a great Easter.  It looks as though spring might be coming soon.

As you may have noticed, the township has been cutting brush in the road right of ways. This hasn't been done for several years so we are trying to get caught up with that task. Due to that delay, there will be some bigger brush lying in the ditches. This will get mulched up as we mow the ditches and will eventually be gone. Please be patient with this process.  The mild winter has been a big help with getting this done.

We will also be doing more shoulder reclaiming soon.

Watch for news on upcoming chloride and clean up days.

 

Hope everyone is doing well!

Mark Stovern

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.
