Residents believe agricultural runoff as well as shoreline development is likely impacting the water quality of the lake.  Download and read entire study Here

These are pictures of Audubon Fire Department’s ‘Dry-Hydrants’ that are located in and near Lake Eunice Township. These were installed as a joint project with the townships and Audubon Fire Department with the use of matching funds. This type of hydrant can be used by the fire department in any weather. They allow access to water during the winter months as they draw from beneath the ice. You are encourage to contact your homeowners insurance agent to let them know of these hydrants. You ‘MAY ‘ be eligible for a discount in your insurance rates.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Township road ‘Rights of Way’ issues

Please note, that by Minnesota State Statute, not only is unsafe but it is illegal to place any items, plant trees or shrubs, build any type of structure, park vehicles or dump leaves/grass clipping into the right of way of any road in Minnesota. This statute also prohibits the parking of campers or errecting fences (whether agricuture related or not) in the right of way. Violation of this statute is considered a criminal misdemeanor and the person or persons responsible are subject to a fine and/or jail.

As township supervsiors we are tasked with insuring our road right of ways are kept clear for public safety. We make periodic inspections of our roads and it is our responsiblity to notify residents if they are in violation. We make every effort to contact the person/s responsible to have it corrected prior to turning the issue over to the Becker County Sheriff. We have worked hard in the past couple of years to clean up our right of ways, including cutting and brushing. These trees/shrubs reduce visibility and are considered a hazard. Please understand that we as supervisors enjoy the beauty of trees/schrubs but need to insure the safety of the drivng public. We ask you to please comply with the Minnesota Statue and to also inform your friends and neighbors if they are in violation. Together we can keep our road right of ways clean and safe. As for the ‘right of way’ width, the rule of thumb is that the right of way extends 33′ in both directions from the centerline of the road. If you have any questions regarding this issue please contact any of your township supervisors. Names and information are posted on the ‘Township Board’ page of this website. Thank you for your continued cooperation.
