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

Last thirty day period the Marinette County Board of supervisors approved contributing $43,900 to the Town of Marinette in the direction of the purchase of a new 24 ft look for and rescue airboat with the caveat that the county be equipped to use the airboat. Nevertheless, at yesterday’s County Board conference a motion was brought forth by Supervisor Allen to rethink motion taken by the County board to transfer the $43,900 to the Metropolis of Marinette for buy of the Airboat. Given that the Town of Marinette has not too long ago allotted $500 per staff for COVID-19 vaccinations utilizing ARPA cash when they could have applied their ARPA money toward the funding of the airboat alternatively of inquiring the County for funding. County Administrator John Lefebvre claims, “the City of Marinette acquired $1.1 million in ARPA funding.”


Supervisor Ken Keller says, “there is a cause why the town is on the lookout for participation in the buying of the airboat.”

After a prolonged dialogue, the board voted, and it arrived in at 14 in favor of the airboat to 13 not in favor.  The anticipated supply day of the airboat is mid-January.
