Last thirty day period the Marinette County Board of supervisors accepted contributing $43,900 to the Town of Marinette to the buy of a new 24 ft look for and rescue airboat with the caveat that the county be capable to use the airboat. Even so, at yesterday’s County Board meeting a motion was brought forth by Supervisor Allen to reconsider action taken by the County board to transfer the $43,900 to the Metropolis of Marinette for obtain of the Airboat. Since the Town of Marinette has not long ago allotted $500 for every personnel for COVID-19 vaccinations working with ARPA cash when they could have made use of their ARPA money toward the funding of the airboat as a substitute of inquiring the County for funding. County Administrator John Lefebvre suggests, “the City of Marinette acquired $1.1 million in ARPA funding.”

Supervisor Ken Keller suggests, “there is a motive why the city is seeking for participation in the acquiring of the airboat.”

Just after a prolonged dialogue, the board voted, and it came in at 14 in favor of the airboat to 13 not in favor.  The predicted delivery date of the airboat is mid-January.
