Almer Township

Township board to fund monument-al effort

Almer Township is going resurrect some monuments.
The township board voted June 8 to pay the Tuscola County Road Commission about $16,000 to find and fix some survey monuments around Almer Township. Supervisor Jim Mantey said some of the monuments have been lost over the years. He said there are about 20 survey monuments that need to be found or replaced.
The monuments don’t really affect the roads, he said, but every time a resident wants to build or is buying or selling property, surveyors need to be able to verify the boundaries of the parcel and that requires a starting point – the surveyor’s monument.
