City continues ordinance update, city hall renovation planning

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Grand Marais City Council has been holding weekly meetings, on Wednesdays, at 6:30 p.m. The meetings are focused primarily on city concerns about the coronavirus. However, the second and last Wednesdays of the month are still considered regular meetings and routine and ongoing matters are discussed.

That was the case on April 27 when the city followed up on two ongoing topics—ordinance revisions in the city and the redevelopment of the city hall/liquor store building.

The city also covered some COVID-19 issues, including the plans for the reopening of the Grand Marais Public Library.
WTIP’s Rhonda Silence checked in with Mayor Jay Arrowsmith DeCoux to learn more about actions at the city meeting.

The next city council meeting is another COVID-19 peacetime state of emergency meeting, to be held on May 6 at 6:30 p.m.
The city will as usual broadcast the meeting on the city’s YouTube channel.

Public comment will be taken in advance via email to cityhall@boreal.org or by calling 218-387-1848.

If you wish to have your comments shared during the usual public comment time of the council meeting, be sure to make that clear in your email or phone call.
