In spite of apparent opposition from residents, Marquette Township’s plans for a new township hall take a step forward.
The Township Board has voted to send the site plan out for bids.
The new building would be at Commerce Drive and Moran Street.
It would include a new police station, a new fire hall and a community center.
The township’s recent survey found most voters oppose the project.
But last night, the board was faced with a decision to either put it out for bids or put it on the shelf, and they chose to ask for bids.
They’ll do that starting September 1st.
The bids will be due by October 1st.
The board members once thought about upgrading the existing township hall.
But they later learned they could build a new one for about the same price.
