Marinette County approves funds to support City of Marinette Airboat after reconsideration

Last thirty day period the Marinette County Board of supervisors permitted contributing $43,900 to the Town of Marinette toward the obtain of a new 24 ft lookup and rescue airboat with the caveat that the county be in a position to use the airboat. Even so, at yesterday’s County Board assembly a movement 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 invest in of the Airboat. Because the Metropolis of Marinette has lately allotted $500 per staff for COVID-19 vaccinations working with ARPA cash when they could have applied their ARPA funds to the funding of the airboat as a substitute of asking the County for funding. County Administrator John Lefebvre states, “the City of Marinette received $1.1 million in ARPA funding.”

Supervisor Ken Keller says, “there is a reason why the metropolis is looking for participation in the paying for of the airboat.”

Right after a lengthy discussion, the board voted, and it came in at 14 in favor of the airboat to 13 not in favor.  The anticipated supply date of the airboat is mid-January.
