Mqt. Co. Board discusses strategic plan

The Marquette County Board of Commissioners got through a number of items at their meeting Tuesday night.

One item was starting to develop the county’s strategic plan.  The commissioners have five key areas in their plan:  the budget, K.I. Sawyer and the airport, law enforcement, county operations and economic development.  These areas come from the county’s strategic plan from 2005.

Commissioner Steve Pence said it is important to keep Sawyer in the strategic plan, especially with the latest developments of the control tower’s closure.

The commission also heard an update from the Lake Superior Community Partnership and their efforts to help organizations Marquette County.
