County Board deals with short agenda
Tuesday, April 23, 2013 7:00 PM
LAKE TOWNSHIP - A short agenda kept the final April meeting of the Menominee County Board of Commissioners brief Tuesday, as only six items were actually voted on by members.
One of the six was added to the agenda, that of approving a resolution in support of Head Start Month, which is recognized in May. Since the county board will not meet again until the second Tuesday in May, the matter received unanimous support to be voted upon Tuesday.
Most of the discussion of the evening centered on a request from Cindy Boyle of Boyle Design Group to include a full-page ad in the Regional Guide 2013/2014. The county has participated in the guide, which highlights locations, events and businesses in Marinette and Menominee counties, for 11 years, Boyle said.
Some of the newer commissioners had questions for Boyle about inclusion of some of the unnamed parks in the county and she recommended that they contact her with any proposed changes.
While the Regional Guide was on the agenda as a presentation, approval of the $1,500 ad price was listed during the new business/discussion items. Commissioners agreed to forward the proposal to the next meeting for a vote.
They also heard from Wendy Warren, Menominee County 4-H Program Coordinator, about the county's programs. With Warren were two Menominee High School students who spoke briefly about their involvement in 4-H and answered questions from commissioners.
In other action, the board:
- Approve appointment of Paul Anderson as a citizen representative on the Planning Commission. William Anderson, a member of the Menominee County Road Commission, was reappointed to the position representing the road commission. Both appointments will start in May and continue until April 30, 2016.
- Reviewed the wording for two resolutions to be voted upon in May. The resolutions include the county's support for state finding for roads and one to recognize Mike Erdman, who is retiring in May.
