The Marquette County Board of Commissioners met for a Committee of the Whole meeting tonight. Which began with a complex presentation on economic development for the City of Marquette.
Marquette Cty Mnager Bll Vjda presented the economic outlook for the city as a micropolitan area because the Uper Peninsula is not entirely a rural or suburban area. This makes for attracting new industries to the area a challenge for the city.
The board also discussed changing their bylaws to adopt using a consent agenda. Commissioner Nordeen made a motion to try using the consent agenda for the next two months. After the trial run, a decision will be made about making a permanent change.
