President announces future resignation, council approves purchase of grapple fork
Calumet Village Council, Nov. 3, 2021 (Special Meeting)
Editor’s Note: I will likely not be able to attend the regular meeting of the Calumet Village Council in November, because it is on the same day as the Houghton County Commissioner’s meeting. Normally they are a week apart but the HCC moved theirs for November.
Village President Brian Abramson announced that he is in the process of selling his house, and would be stepping down and moving to Marquette when the sale was complete.
At the request of the DPW Superintendent Marc Klein, the council unanimously approved a $5,000 expense for a grapple fork to be purchased from Luce County. Klein said that Luce County took the piece of equipment off of auction and was willing to let the village buy it for the minimum bid. He also said the equipment was made for the loader the village recently purchased and would save the village many labor hours through the year. After the vote, Klein volunteered his time on a day off to pick up the piece of equipment in a show of appreciation.
Councilor Andrew Ranville was absent from the meeting.
