"it kind of protects the identity of townships and i think townships being your most local government in smaller areas i think kind of get forgotten about. there's a lot of history in pleasant grove." the new town hall will be built right next to the current one. the town board approved a budget of no more than 200á thousand dollars for the project. this is surplus money á and will not affect taxes. live in pleasant grove township annalise johnson kimt news 3. thank you annalise. bids are still out for the construction of the project. it's not known what will happen to the curren town
