    GLR News Update

    Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The Marquette City Commission has approved an effort to cut city-wide energy expenses.

    At their regular meeting last night in Marquette, the commission voted 5-2 to negotiate an agreement with Johnson Controls to conduct an efficiency study of city-owned buildings and facilities as well as systems such as street and traffic lights.

    Following the study, an action plan would be set to make a series of improvements to cut the city’s energy expenses.

    The study is expected to take about two months to complete.

    Commissioners also unanimously approved a plan to upgrade current restroom and shower facilities at Marquette’s Tourist Park & Campground.

    The upgrades would be made in conjunction with the building of new, fully accessible shower and bath facilities at the park.
