The City of Marquette’s Proposed Budget for Fiscal Year 2021 is now available online at www.marquettemi.gov/budget. Hard copies will be available at the City Clerk’s office in City Hall, at 300 W. Baraga Avenue. To schedule an opportunity to view a hard copy, please call 906-225-8657 and schedule an appointment.

Four special meetings of the City Commission have been scheduled in order to discuss the budget. The meetings will be held during the following dates and times:

  • August 12, 2020
  • August 17, 2020
  • August 19, 2020
  • August 24, 2020

All meetings will begin at 5:15 p.m., with the Commission and some staff physically present in Commission Chambers at City Hall.

In light of Executive Orders issued by the Office of the Governor, the meetings will be held without the public in physical attendance. The public is invited to view and participate in the meeting electronically.

Each meeting will be streamed on channel 191 and YouTube starting at 5:15 p.m. The City YouTube channel can be found at www.youtube.com/user/CityofMarquetteGov.

Public Participation

There will be two options for public participation in these meetings: phone conferencing or written comment. There will be two public comment periods for each meeting, one at the beginning and one at the end. Comments will be limited to three minutes and speakers must give their name and address. Written comments will be limited to 500 words.

Members of the public wishing to call in and make a comment over the phone will need to call 312-626-6799 and enter the meeting ID (814 5212 6232).

When participating via phone conferencing, you will be placed into a virtual lobby/on-hold until the Public Comment portions of the meetings are reached. Once Public Comment begins, the Mayor will go through each person waiting in the lobby one at a time and provide them with the opportunity to address the Commission. Though there may be a delay on the video feeds, it is recommended that participants follow the meeting on Channel 191 or YouTube to have an idea of when the Public Comment portion is occurring and that they be ready to make their comment. The phone conference lobby will open at 5:00 p.m.

Written comments can be submitted directly to shobbins@marquettemi.gov. Written submissions will be accepted until noon on the day of each meeting at which they are intended to be read.
