Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The Marquette City Commission has voted to move ahead with a lease agreement with the Upper Peninsula Community Rowing Club for a boathouse.
The proposed facility would be built along the Lake Superior shoreline near the Hampton Inn.
The commission voted 5-2 to approve the lease with Commissioners Cambensy and Reynolds voting against it.
