At this weeks City of Marinette’s Special Common Council Meeting Mayor Steve Genisot addressed the board with an update regarding the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration grant to the city in the amount of 3.8-million-dollars. Genisot says, “this is probably one of the few times that both state and federal funds have been used to compliment each other which is a good opportunity for us to have a bigger and better project.”

Genisot says, “I think to have this opportunity and this large of an investment by grant that doesn’t come from City of Marinette taxpayers’ funds is an achievement.”

Two road projects are slated to begin this year with the rest of the street projects on deck to be completed in 2022.
