Local Board of Appeals and Equalization Training
Townships hold the power to conduct Local Boards of Appeal and Equalization (LBAE) meetings, so long as they follow the requirements listed in Minnesota Statutes Chapter 274. Part of these requirements includes training for the members of the LBAE. To comply with the training requirements, the board must have a member who participated in the training within the last four (4) years. If not, the board must have a member complete the training by February 1st or lose its power to the county for 2 years.
The board may participate in the training by following either of the following links:
If the town is unsure whether the members have complied with the training requirements, they may either take the training or review this document and determine if an officer for the township is listed on the roster.
