Mayor Larry Carlson took the oath of office at Wednesday’s Grand Marais City Council meeting. New councilor Bob Spry and re-elected councilor Bill Lenz were also sworn in. The first order of business was to establish city council appointments to boards and commissions. A number of citizen appointments still remain vacant. The Library Board has one opening, the Park Board has two and the city’s Planning Commission needs one more member of the public. Interested residents of the city are encouraged to contact City Hall for more information.
