HOLLANDTOWN - When the Holland Town Board meets at Van Abel's Hall on Tuesday, December 1, it will be focused a mile to the south.
The agenda for the town board meeting includes a report, by Town Chairman Jerome Wall, about the traffic at County D (Marx Road) and Man Cal Road (County KK).
That's the intersection in front of the Hollandtown BP Convenience Store, which has been the scene of several brutal crashes over the years.

Also on the agenda for the 7 p.m. meeting is the possible revaluation of taxable properties in the township, and attorney James Sickel's counsel on a request by the Greenleaf Volunteer Fire Department.
Greenleaf Fire Chief Joe Daul asked the town to require owners of property involved in a fire to pay for outside resources - such as a high-hoe and other construction equipment - ordered in by the fire department.
With the town's action, there are questions about whether the property owner has to pay for that equipment and services as a part of the firefighting effort. Such equipment is often required to knock down a burning structure, or to get at bales of hay and other combustibles at a fire scene.
