Both companies meet the essential infrastructure requirements and are authorized by the State of Michigan to continue performing services.

All work will occur on the exterior of the building. No interior work is required. Itron workers will have company identification and their work vehicles will have Itron logos.

The Marquette City Clerk’s office is now accepting nominating petitions for the City elective offices to be filled this year. There will be two vacancies on the Marquette Board of Light and Power and three vacancies on the Marquette City Commission.

Packets containing nominating petition forms, the required certificates and information sheets are available from the City Clerk’s Office. Due to the cautionary public health measures implemented by the Governor (Executive Order 2020-21), these materials will not be available for pick-up in person. In order to obtain nominating forms and related documents, residents must contact the City Clerk’s Office by email at clerk@marquettemi.gov or via telephone at 906-225-8667. This communication must include the person’s name, address and contact information; application materials will then be mailed to interested parties.

The deadline for filing nominating petitions is 4 p.m. on Tuesday, April 21. To be eligible to run for office in the City of Marquette, candidates must have been residents of the City for at least one year, and may not be in debt to the City.

If a sufficient number of candidates file, a primary election for the BLP and City Commission will be held on Aug. 4, 2020. Candidates moving on from the primary will then be on the Nov. 3, 2020 ballot.
