A Message from the Mayor’s Desk:

Menominee, MIGood Evening. As always, it is my honor as Mayor of the City of Menominee, to deliver the State of the City Address.

The last year brought a variety of changes to the City and I predict that 2022 will not be significantly different because that is the nature of government. In July Manager Tony Graff left the City of Menominee via a negotiated resignation and Chief Brett Botbyl has been serving as both the Chief of Police and the interim manager since Mr. Graff’s departure. This position is currently posted internally and it is my expectation that we will have a solution shortly. We have, additionally, two department heads to replace as the City Engineer, Tricia Alwin, and Building Inspector, Derek Schulz, also resigned this year. We are currently evaluating how to proceed regarding the engineering position and we hope to resolve the replacement of the building inspector as soon as possible.
