Collaboration all around at city council meeting

ISHPEMING — Tonight was filled with recognition and collaboration at Ishpeming’s City Council meeting.

This evening the council agreed on a dump site for the round–about projects that will help protect pedestrians and workers. The council and the representative that was from Lindberg and Sons agreed that if there are any changes that will directly impact the few homes that are near the project, they would go door–to–door to inform the residents and address any concerns they may have.

First up during public comment was Brian Turek a representative of Partridge Creek Farm, who talked about the multiple awards the group has won lately, and shared their plans for 2016. Turek added that they will continue their partnership with Ishpeming High School for their life skills projects.

During the meeting the city council voted in favor of a new collaboration with the Ishpeming Historical Society, who recently won the 2016 Peter White Prize.

City Manager Mark Slown said, “We have a lot of historical items in the building at City Hall that we’ve been sorting through, and some of them are things that the Historical Society would like to be able to put on display.”

The historical society will now have the opportunity to help rotate city artifacts between the museum, library and city hall.
