Marquette, MIJanuary 15, 2020 – Erin Carter, Michigan State University Extension District Director for District 2, which serves Marquette, Alger, Luce, Schoolcraft, Mackinac, and Chippewa Counties shared an update this week about budget cuts in Marquette County that are impacting the future of certain MSU Extension services.

Carter spoke about how MSU Extension is working to cover the County Board cuts to the Extension program budget on Mark & Walt in the Morning this week.

She said that amount is $11,100 below base amount for the county, as determined by a formula based on the latest census figures, of $59,562 for 4-H programs and services.

Carter said MSU Extension is covering the difference for this year to maintain their programs and services for Marquette County, but she could not say what would happen next year.

She added that anyone who is interested in finding out more about these issues, or wants to weigh in on the matter, can reach her via email at ecarter@msu.edu or call her at (906) 369-4572.
