Valley would be more convenient for the residents of Bagley then consolida-
tion with Brecd. ILikc.risc x4Ding out all tovn lines in the Nicolet
National Forest and drawing a line so as to creatc. tvo new tovins based
upon
the present road system, distribution of taxablc property -nd of farms
might result in a satisfactory arrangement, though savings no doubt wi.ll

excellent suggestions made in the Land Us, Plrnning report on roads,

of government might be changed according to ma.jor lnnd us5s and only
Vital public services provided.'  This recomm ndation recognizes thr.t
th3 form of government should fit tho needs of the people ss influoneod
