Marinette City Council Okays Four Capital Outlay Projects

Issue Date: April 14, 2021

A special Finance and Insurance meeting was held Tuesday, April 13 prior to the City of Marinette Common Council meeting. A long list of capital outlay unfunded or unplanned capital improvement projects from the 2020 net income designated in December 2020 was on the agenda.

With a list of projects totaling $120,891, an amount of $19,625 was approved for four immediate need projects including Cisco licensing for the City and REC Center for wireless connectivity of switches, routers, firewall and bridges at $9,414; 16 new light poles at $5,120; wireless antennae and supporting equipment for three squad cars at $3,571 and SCBA cylinder replacement at $1,520.

The four projects okayed at the committee meeting were later approved at Council level, leaving 12 other projects left over to be discussed further at the next Finance meeting. Those 12 projects include three IT projects of Laser-fiche programming, $30,000; Cameras for Red Arrow & Menekaunee, $5,000 and Police Department (PD) second file server, $3,899; a vehicle lift for heavy vehicles for Department of Public Works (DPW), $8,500; Four Police Department items of: Three Panasonic Toughbooks, $9,500, Backup external HD $3,000; Maintenance agreement emergency weather sirens, $1,580 and TruNarc Drug ID System, $25,753 and four miscellaneous projects for Building Key Fab for City upstairs and DPW, $2,302, 50 foot hoses, $2,907 for Fire Department, Civic Human Resources package, $6,825 and Mausoleum masonry repair for Cemetery, $2,000.

The Council meeting then started with Mayor Steve Genisot giving his Mayor's report advising Council of Tyco/JCI information that was included in their Council packet for their information. At the May meeting JCI will be present to give an update on the Groundwater Extraction and Treatment System (GETS) on their path to clean water and a permanent PFAS solution.

Two vendors were approved for the Marinette Logging and Heritage Festival. Division BMX will be returning with their stunt team including three BMX riders and an announcer, with shows at 2 p.m., 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. The second approved vendor is Mischief and Magic that will provide balloon twisting from noon to 6 p.m. Other highlights include local artisan craft and farm market vendors, limited non-profit food vendors and two local bands, The Dirty Martinis playing from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and Rosebrook from 6 p.m. until the start of the fireworks which will wrap-up the event.

Due to Covid19 and limited areas of the island able to be used due to wet and damaged areas from excess water, the festival will be held mostly in the parking lot or on paved areas with less vendors and attractions than normal. This years event will only be a held for one day, Saturday, July 10 starting at noon on Stephenson Island.

Bids were received and approved for three different projects, each with only one sole bidder. An asphalt bid for $84,187 was granted to Northeast Asphalt Inc of Green Bay. Two other bids were granted to Halvelka Construction of Wallace including seasonal gravel requirements for a total base bid of $1,045 and the second one granted was for Topsoil in the amount of $1,590.

In the Personnel and License portion of the meeting, a temporary class B fermented malt beverage license application was approved for Marinette Menominee Youth Hockey Association (MMYHA) for the men's hockey tournament being held April 23 through April 25 at the REC center. Also approved was renewal of two operator license applications for Cassie Danhauer and Manie Keller. Five new operator licenses were approved for Travis Lyons, Charles Miehle, Karen Techmeier, Samantha Voelker, and Christine Zimmerman.

Two requests were forwarded by Civic Affairs Committee to Council to resell crypts and graves back to the cemetery. A request was made by Delores Begotka to sell back two crypts at Forest Home Cemetery and the other was from Fran Behnke as a request so sell back two lots to the cemetery. The couple lives in Green Bay where they have resided for the past 40 years. Council approved the buy back for both requests.
