BARODA — The Baroda Township Board on Monday voted unanimously to approve a special assessment for township property owners in the Nash Drain area.

Berrien County Drain Commissioner Christopher Quattrin said the board could choose for the assessments to be paid all at once, or over a 10-year period. “These are healthy payments” for some property owners, according to Treasurer Brenda Troxell, so the board chose to spread the costs to owners over 10 years.
