LOTS OF THINGS HAPPENING AROUND MARQUETTE COUNTY.

SOME OF THE BROADCAST AREA.

It’s one of those weeks around here with a ton of things going on.  We had a chance to touch on two rather interesting issues here in Marquette County this morning on the big program.  One had to do with some good financial news for a local schools district, and the other had to do with getting people involved in the local political process.  It’s the kind of information that helps to make Marquette County strong.  So, dear blog-o-phile, scroll down and take in some bona fide community information!


MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP LOOKS TO THE FUTURE.

STRATEGIC PLANNING IN MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP.

Marquette Township Manager Randy Girard joined us this morning via phone to give us an update on the latest efforts in the Township to develop a formal strategic plan for the next year and beyond.  According to Girard, the process has been very well received and the Township is now looking for residents to get together and join a series of ad hoc committees that have been formed to address a series of issues and goals created by the general strategic plan.  To listen to the interview with Randy Girard, please click “HERE“.  To log on to the Marquette Township website and find out more about the committee requests and the overall strategic plan, please click “HERE“.

NICE COMMUNITY SCHOOLS GETS A GRANT.

Michael Haynes, Superintendent of the NICE Community Schools, called in this morning to chat about a $100,000 grant the district received to support early childhood programs.  The grant award will enable the district to establish a comprehensive early childhood program in order to strengthen the school-family connection prior to children entering Kindergarten and to facilitate parent/family/child  learning opportunities within and outside of the school.  The initiative solidifies the district’s commitment to adequately prepare all children to reach their fullest potential.  To listen to the interview with Superintendent Haynes, click “HERE“.  To log on to the District’s website and find out more about the programs for youth that are in the works, please click “HERE“.
