The routine and thorough inspection was for the purpose of monitoring compliance with Michigan environmental statutes and regulations. Scott Richards, with the Marquette District Office of the Water Resources Division conducted the inspection and commended the project manager, Michael Thorsen for proactively managing the facility, given the effects of some aging equipment. Special note was made of the well managed laboratory and that all QA/QC protocols were adhered to. Mr. Richards further commented that the city facility has maintained a good compliance history.

Thank you to Mr. Thorsen and his employees for the great work!!!!!

The Menominee Waterfront Festival Committee will meet at 5:15pm, Thursday, June 17 at Menominee City Hall. The committee will discuss the possibility of continuing the festival next year, after the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 festival.
The festival began in the early 80’s as a celebration of the City’s centennial and has continued for more than 35 years as a “community celebration”. The committee has honored this tradition over the years, continuing the free event and using only non- profit community organizations as vendors. These organizations used the profits they make to continue the many charitable programs that benefit our local communities.
The budget for the first event was just less that $20,000 and has grown over the years to $90,000 - $100,000+. Most of this is raised from local business and industry and beverage sales at the event. The City provides insurance, and police and fire, parks and street, and recreation dept. assistance that is invaluable to the continuation of the festival.
We are inviting the public to attend the meeting with any questions, suggestions or ideas they may have for the festival going forward and will provide information on festival budget and financing, licensing and regulatory requirements and those community guidelines we continue to follow.
“We are hoping for a positive, constructive conversation with those who have expressed an interest in the event and we want to hear their suggestions and ideas”, stated Nancy Douglas, Festival Chair.
Masks are required for those who are not vaccinated.
