Marinette Council Hears Update On Small Business Revolution

Issue Date: February 7, 2019

A special Personnel and License Committee meeting was held just prior to the Marinette City Council Meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 5 for consideration and possible Council recommendation regarding a Class B Picnic License for the Marinette/ Menominee Area Youth Hockey Association (MMAYHA) for the Rumble At The Rec event to be held March 1 at the Marinette Rec Center. It was later approved at the council meeting with a unanimous vote.

In his report, Mayor Steve Genisot proclaimed Friday, March 1 as NEA's Read Across America Day to promote reading with children and adult involvement in the education of our communities students. This is a national celebration closest to Dr Seuss's birthday, with this years celebration of his 115th birthday. Genisot encourages all area citizens to endorse Read Across America on March 1 by reading a book with your children or family.

In public comment, Marinette resident David Ayres addressed Mayor Genisot stating he knew he wasn't on the agenda but he has contacted City Hall several times and left messages for a return call and never heard anything. He asked to be put on next months agenda to speak in public comment in regards to the paint issue on cars when the city was painting lines on the road this past summer. His car and others were sprayed with paint as they were passing the area of where they were painting.

Ayres said, "This has been nothing but a smoke screen". Mayor Genisot replied with "It will go through a committee first and then to council". Ayres then commented, then nothing will be done and as he was leaving the meeting said, "Sorry for wasting your time".

In unfinished business, council approved contracts of four venues taking place this summer at the Logging and Heritage Festival that will be held the weekend of July 13 and 14 on Stephenson Island. Those approved were, Spielbauer Fireworks from Green Bay to provide fireworks on the evening of Saturday, July 13; Mischief and Magic from Green Bay, including balloon twisting, face painting, a magic show and a mobile Nerf War that works similar to bounce houses with up to 30 players at a time with the events held on both Saturday, July 13 and Sunday, July 14; Great Lakes Timber Show from Escanaba featuring chainsaw carving, ax throwing, antique logging tools, crosscut sawing, modified chain sawing, audience participation, log rolling and lots of clean family humor and an agreement with Sunny and The Heat to provide musical entertainment on Sunday July 14 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

After recommendation for possible approval from the Public Safety Code Enforcement committee meeting held on Monday, Jan. 21, Council approved to forego the bidding process requirements for trench equipment requested by Chief Jay Heckel of City of Marinette Fire Department. The request was made due to the fact that the only vendor that makes equipment that is compatible with the Departments current equipment is Conway Shield and it makes sense to purchase equipment that can be integrated with what they currently have.

Of the 10 new operator licenses forwarded to Council from the Personnel and License Committee meeting held on Tuesday, Jan. 15 for approval, nine were approved with one denied due to not meeting the proper criteria and falls outside of the guidelines with two or more offenses in a five year period for mis-use of alcohol. Those approved include: Timothy H. Berge, Shannon Rae Crayton, Kayla M. Green, April J. Hansen, Katie L. Howerton, Cynthia L. Kamin, Kathy M. Keller, Amber D. Miller and Allyson E. Bickel. The license denied was for Taylor L. Bebo. A letter will be sent to her and she has the right to appeal.

Council also approved to accept a Tourism Information Center (TIC) Grant agreement between the Wisconsin Department of Tourism and the Marinette Recreation Department to help with staffing and customer service for the Tourism Information Center.

A question was asked of what percentage of operating expenses does the grant cover and Recreation Director Kent Kostelecky replied, "It covers a very small amount, about half of the labor portion for six months".

A pay request was approved in the amount of $11,923.45 to Patriot Fencing for the Marinette Rec Center. Also approved was a contract payment request #2 in the amount of $4,298.76 with contract change order #2 in the amount of -$931.50 from LaCourt Concrete Construction for the Menekaunee South Harbor Pavilion Project.

In other action a contract amendment from Robert E. Lee for additional work related to Menekaunee Harbor and the South Channel Restoration for completion of long term operation and maintenance plan to cost $6,250 and Wild Rice Seeding for an additional planting at a cost of $550 for an amount of $6,800 which will be funded by the DNR.

The new polling location for all Wards one through nine in the City of Marinette will be located at the Marinette Rec Center. A question was raised if there was going to be an outside line as in the last election and City Clerk, Lana Bero announced, there is enough room and entrances in the Rec Center to accommodate everyone and with the setup of the three sets of doors, there will be no-one waiting outdoors.

Alderperson Ken Keller gave an update on the Menekaunee Harbor improvements project to recognize the Menominee Indian Tribe with representation of the five Clans along with the Ancestral Bear added to the Harbor. Keller presented pictures of the work in progress of three of the fiberglass sculptures including a sturgeon statue with light, commercial fisherman statue with light and Ancestral Bear with all three being close to being finished.

Keller thanked the Council for helping to move this project forward and is happy to see the project will be becoming a reality soon.

Kim Brooks and Keith Killan, representing the Small Business Revolution (SBR) voting process, addressed the Council with information on dates, times and the voting process for if/ when Marinette/ Menominee makes it to the top five in the SBR.

Brooks said,"We are encouraging all to get their devices ready now, don't wait, get them ready, do it now, so you can start voting immediately on Tuesday morning, Feb. 12". We will have eight days to vote starting 6 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12 through 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 19 ".

Killen added, early Tuesday morning of Feb. 12, Deluxe Company will be announcing the top five and it will be Facebook live, so get ready now, charge your devices, go through old phones that still work that can connect to WiFi, use every email address you have, every day, once per day per device for eight days. Get ready now to start voting on Tuesday!

Killen encourages all businesses to let their employees vote during work hours. Mayor Genisot stated, "The Marinette County Court House is allowing employees to vote during work hours as well as I will be sending out an email allowing Marinette City employees to vote during the day as well".

Some area businesses will be setup with stations to vote on and everyone can vote even if they voted on their own devices. Voting can be done on as many devices as you can creatively come up with for each email address you have once per day on each device for as many devices and computers you can think of.

Cast your vote from every device you have, including laptop, desktop, smart phone, tablet, kindle or nook, iPad, Chrome book and any and all iPods or deactivated smart phones that still connect to WiFi, etc. Vote every day but only once per day on each and erery device you use or have access to.

Brooks and Killen are encouraging all to establish voting networks with family, extended family, friends, co-workers, worldwide contact lists, using your Church bulletin, organization newsletters, email list, start a web-like network by engaging friends, family and all groups you belong to and encourage them to reach out to their personal networks to expand an ever greater web of voting networks.

After the top five is announced and if/when we are part of the top five, go to the Deluxe Corp. direct link of https://www.deluxe.com/small-business-revolution/main-street/season-four/ Add this link as a favorite on every device you use so you can go directly to the voting.

If you want to receive a text message notice to remind you to vote, text to 555888 and text: Votemymm and you will get a response and are then setup to receive a voting reminder.

Throughout the voting process there will be four updates in the eight days as to where we are as a placement but not a tally of how many votes. The final announcement of who won the SBR will be announced on Tuesday, Feb. 26.
