The Menominee County apportionment committee met yesterday to determine which would be better fitting for the county as far as the size of county commissioners go and the layout of the districts. The committee was given three options to review: The first being nine county commissioners, second five, and last seven. Committee member Jeffrey Rogg says, “I think there are a number of positive reasons to support the nine county commissioners.”
“In terms of five county commissioners we’ve heard from the republican party and from others that all other counties across the U.P. only have five why don’t we?” says Rogg.
After a short discussion, the committee voted and came in at 4 to 1 in favor of the nine-commissioner plan.
