The Grand Marais City Council met on Wednesday, Feb. 13 and we checked in with Grand Marais Mayor Jay Arrowsmith DeCoux after the meeting.
 
The mayor gave an update on topics discussed, such as a zoning change in the Creechville area of Grand Marais and possible changes to overall zoning to increase opportunities for new housing in the city; on personnel matters.
 
The mayor expressed appreciation to Karl Hansen, who has gone off the Grand Marais Public Utilities Commission, for his time on the board. The council approved appointment of Ann Possis to the PUC.
 
In other PUC news, the council received a rough draft of a city climate action plan from Climate Change Coordinator Shane Steele. There was limited discussion on that to give councilors time to read through the draft to discuss at future meetings.  
 
A related interview, on the delay of the Highway 61 construction project through the city of Grand Marais can heard here.
 
Here’s WTIP’s Rhonda Silence with more.
