Committee Recommends Administrator Take Over Airport Director Duties

Sports.jpg

09/21/2018- Menominee County’s Administrator could soon see new job duties attached to his title. The county’s Personnel Committee discussed Thursday delegating some of the high-level management responsibilities of the airport to Jason Carviou while the county remains without a permanent airport manager. Carviou says the move would grant him more authority to make decisions regarding leases and ordinance enforcement without running each individual item by the Airport Committee and County Board. But, because Carviou isn’t licensed to perform several other tasks involved in the airport’s daily operations, those will continue to fall on the shoulders of Assistant Manager Jeff LaFleur. Committee member Larry Schei say they still need to find a long-term solution to the airport’s staffing shortfalls.
The Committee voted to temporarily assign the duties of an airport director, including administrative functions, budget preparation, and policy enforcement to the County Administrator. The board also agreed to maintain the current part-time airport administrative assistant to aid in these duties.

Electronic Waste Collection Planned for Menominee

Sports.jpg

09/21/2018- When electronics and appliances stop working, they often end up in landfills, or worse, dumped on the side of the road, but, an event in Menominee next weekend will take those gadgets off your hands for free. The local Goodwill is hosting an Electronic Waste Collection Saturday, September 29th at Menominee City Hall. The collection is open to residents of both Menominee and Marinette and will accept televisions, computers, cell phones, microwaves, gaming systems, and more, all at no-charge. The collection site is behind City Hall and will allow one-way traffic south to north. Residents are asked to enter from 23rd Avenue near the compost site. The Electronic Waste Collection runs from 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM.

Lawsuit Over Oconto County Manure Pit

Sports.jpg

09/21/2018- The owner of a Marinette County dairy farm says he stands to lose millions of dollars if an Oconto County judge limits or stops the construction of a 12.6 million- gallon manure pit located in the Town of Little River. Neighbors of the facility, which is nearly complete have filed a lawsuit saying the pit could pollute the air with methane and other gases and the odor would impact surrounding property values. They also claim the facility does not meet a 250-foot setback requirement. However, both the engineer for the project and a county conservationist say the project’s plans have been approved and permitted by the DNR and the Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection and meet all county specifications for animal waste storage. The planned manure pit is owned by Brian Lepianka who runs B&D Dairy near Pound- a third-generation dairy farm with 65 employees. A judge is set to hear arguments in the case next week.

Law Enforcement Conducts Alcohol Compliance Checks

Sports.jpg

09/21/2018- Marinette County businesses show a slight improvement in age verification practices for the sale of alcohol. The Marinette County Sheriff’s Office recently partnered with Marinette County Public Health and the Health Youth Coalition to conduct alcohol compliance checks throughout the county. During these checks, 18-year-old volunteers attempted to purchase alcohol from licensed vendors using their state issued IDs. These transactions were monitored by law enforcement and of the forty-four businesses check, eight sold alcohol to the underage volunteers. This 18% failure rate is down marginally from the 19% failure rate in 2017. Those businesses that did sell alcohol to minors were cited in accordance with county ordinance.

Giant Pumpkin Festival Tomorrow

Sports.jpg

09/21/2018- It’s the time of year when people figure out how to use pumpkins for just about everything- including as boats. The Menominee Historic Downtown Farmers Market will hold their 8th annual Giant Pumpkin Festival tomorrow at the Great Lakes Memorial Marina Park. Lucy Pier helps organize the event. She says the day features contests in pumpkin carving, bowling, seed spitting, pie eating and, yes, even boat racing.
There will also be vendors, musicians, and children’s activities at the festival, which has drawn in as many as three thousand visitors in years past. Pier says the event is put on entirely by volunteers and all proceeds go towards funding the next year’s festival.
The Giant Pumpkin Festival runs from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM. You can find out more about the event on their Facebook Page.

09/20/2018- A Coleman man is dead of injuries suffered in an accident last Thursday. Marinette County Sheriff Jerry Sauve says 79 year old David Hallada was thrown from the tractor he was driving on County B near 11th Road in the Town of Pound. Hallada passed away from his injuries in a Green Bay hospital Tuesday evening. This is the 7th traffic fatality of the year in Marinette County.

MDOT Weighs in on Airport Disputes

Sports.jpg

09/20/2018- It was a much calmer meeting than many expected when Menominee Regional Airport users and members of the County’s Committee of the Whole gathered Wednesday to get answers to on several ongoing issues surrounding the airport. Bryan Budds with the Michigan DOT Office of Aeronautics joined in via web conference and responded to dozens of questions from both county commissioners and airport users. Perhaps the most prominent dispute between the parties is the shortened terms offered to tenants in their new lease agreements. Budds says the maximum lease term deemed acceptable by MDOT and the FAA is 30 years.
When it comes to security concerns, Budds says much of that decision-making is left up to the airport sponsor, though he did admit that the county’s decision to place barriers across a taxi lane to limit vehicular traffic was a bit outside the norm.
The county began issuing new lease agreements when they took over as official airport sponsor following the dissolution of the Twin County Airport Commission. County Administrator Jason Carviou says they’re also working to update the airport handbook and layout plan to get into compliance with MDOT and FAA standards.

Sex Offender Placement in Marinette

Sports.jpg

09/20/2018- The Marinette Police Department is notifying residents about the release of a sex offender into the community. 26-year-old Nathan Hardy was convicted of 3rd Degree Sexual Assault in 2012 and has completed the criminal sentence imposed on him by the courts. He now has a scheduled release date of September 25th and will reside on Shore Drive between Parnell and Daggett Streets. Officials stress that Hardy is not wanted by the police at this time and any attempts to threaten, intimidate, or harass registered sex offenders will not be tolerated. Hardy will be under electronic monitoring and must comply with all requirements of the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry.
