Due to Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order 2020-21, Marenisco Township offices will be closed to the public until further notice. Only essential services will be performed by Township officials and employees. Police services will be performed by calling 9-1-1 or calling Chief Mahler at (906) 787-2300. Water and sewer problems should also be directed to Chief Mahler. Utility bills may be paid by depositing payments into the drop box outside the office door. Tax questions must be mailed to PO Box 198, Marenisco, MI 49947 or placed in the drop box. Our Township Treasurer is no longer receiving delinquent tax payments or taking questions on them. Please direct those questions and payments to the Gogebic County Treasurer’s office.

The Township Public Hearing on March 30, 2020 at 5:45 PM must be cancelled. The hearing was necessary to discuss and approve the 2020-2021 Marenisco Township budget, which, by law, must be approved prior to April 1, 2020. A copy of the proposed budget is posted on the Township website’s (marenisco.org) bulletin board for perusal and comment. Other copies will be placed at the Marenisco General Store and the Marenisco Post Office, the only other Township businesses authorized to be open to the public during this time.

Marenisco senior meals are considered an essential service and will be sold to eligible people who call (906) 787-2503 before 10 AM on Wednesdays. Pickup will occur at the main entrance with no building entry allowed. There will be no delivery of meals. No line may form for pickup.

The executive order is in force until April 13 and may later be extended.

Richard Bouvette

Township Supervisor
