There has been a great deal of activity on the site of the former Tomteboda Motel, later known as Gateway Motel, over the last year. The City of Grand Marais cleared and constructed its new public works facility at the site. Many of the former motel units were sold and removed from the lot. And at the end of April, local fire departments conducted a controlled burn exercise in the remaining units. 

Community members are now wondering what will happen at the site. WTIP's Rhonda Silence talked to Grand Marais Mayor Jay Arrowsmith DeCoux to find out more.
