We  currently have one opening for a Board of Review alternate member.  If you are interested in this position, please call 231-879-3963. The Fife Lake Township Board of Review (BOR) consists of three members. Two thirds of the membership of the BOR must be a taxpaying property owner and resident within the township. No member of the BOR may be a school board nor a family member, mother, father, sister, brother, son or daughter or adopted child of the Assessor. An elected or appointed member of the township board cannot serve on the BOR while holding office.

BOR members are appointed to their positions for a two year term expiring on odd numbered years. Two out of the three members present make a quorum for the BOR.

The BOR is required to meet in March each year. If there is business to conduct, the BOR shall also meet in July or December or both July and December.

The business of the BOR is to hear taxpayer appeals. The Township Supervisor acts as secretary to the BOR and keeps the official record of the proceedings and any change made in the tax rolls and files the record with the Township Clerk.
