After some tough discussion at a long, hard meeting on Tuesday, June 28, Marinette County Board voted 16 to 11 in favor of an amendment to the 2017 budget policy that calls for developing a plan to eliminate dependence on borrowing to finance ongoing maintenance projects, including road construction.

Ultimately County Board approved the 2017 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) that calls for adding $5,910,000 to existing county debt in 2017, but Administrator Shawn Henessee agreed with the supervisors who said borrowing must come to an end. ...
