County board to hold organizational meeting

MARQUETTE – The Marquette County Board is scheduled to elect its chairman and vice chairman and set its 2014 meeting schedule at its organizational meeting Tuesday in Marquette.

The meeting is at 6 p.m. Tuesday in Room 231 of the Henry Skewis Annex to the Marquette County Courthouse.

The Marquette County Board is currently led by Chairman Gerald Corkin and Vice Chairwoman Deborah Pellow. In addition to electing its officers, the board will make an annual review of the panel’s rules of order.

A proposed meeting schedule for the year will also be considered for approval. The proposed schedule continues a recently adopted policy of meeting twice – rather than four times – each month.

Additional agenda action items include 2014 contracts for senior services, an airport consultant contract, an aircraft emergency response agreement and public safety building lease agreement.
