The city of Grand Marais met on Wednesday, December 12 and during that meeting the council selected a new council member, gave a Truth-in-Taxation presentation and talked about the changes ahead for the Highway 61 corridor through Grand Marais. 

The council had two potential citizens to appoint to the city council vacancy, Craig Schulte and Anna Hamilton. Schulte was selected to fulfill the two-year term and the mayor shares his thoughts on working with a new council member. 

The city council expressed appreciation to Hamilton for applying for the seat and encouraged her to consider applying for a board or commission in the city. In fact, the council asked all city residents to consider serving on various boards and commissions, such as the Grand Marais Public Utilities Commission, the Grand Marais Park Board or Grand Marais Planning & Zoning. 

Anyone who would like more information on a position on those boards should call Grand Marais City Hall at 218-387-1848 or email More information can also be found on the city's website - click here
