Farmer's Almanac tips for a safe winter season.
Socks on the Go! Pack an extra pair of socks in your car’s glove compartment. Then if you need to get out and shovel, or if you step into a puddle, you’ll have dry socks to change into. And put those mismatched socks to use: use them as wiper blade covers! Keep coming back for more tips
Is it up or down?
Rotate Your Ceiling Fans CorrectlyChanging the rotation of your ceiling fan can save you heating and cooling costs. Fans should turn clockwise, at a low speed, during the winter to pull the warm air up and around the room. During the summer, set them to counterclockwise to push the cold air down. While a fan won’t actually change the temperature of the room, the warm or cool air on your skin will make you feel warmer or colder and you’ll be more likely to give your thermostat a break. Note: Most fans have a switch that can be flipped to change direction, while newer models offer the option on the wall panel.

William Seppanen Please follow the rules for recycling as if too many loads are contaminated, we may need to stop the program. Every Marquette County resident got a letter from 906 Recycle with the proper materials to place in the recycle bins or in our case the trailers.

Beginning Oct. 1, 2021, Michigan residents boarding a domestic flight or entering certain federal facilities, military bases and nuclear power plants must show a REAL ID-compliant document. The federal standards known as REAL ID were drafted in response to the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks based on recommendations from the 9/11 Commission. REAL ID sets document and security protocols for the production of driver’s licenses and ID cards, including the use of features to prevent illegal copying or altering. If the convenience of carrying a license or ID that meets all requirements for boarding a plane for domestic travel appeals to you, then a REAL ID-compliant license or ID is the right choice for you. If you have an enhanced driver’s license or enhanced state ID card, you already have a REAL ID-compliant card. If you don’t have an enhanced card, please continue reading. Michigan Residents: Take your Michigan license or ID card and proof of your Social Security number and citizenship or legal presence to a Secretary of State office. You may apply for a REAL ID-compliant license or ID card at any time. Or you can wait until it’s time to renew. Your renewal notice will state whether or not your license or ID is REAL ID compliant if there is any question about it. All Applicants: Your photograph will be taken at the branch office and the appropriate driver’s license or ID card fees will be due. There is no additional fee for obtaining a REAL ID-compliant license or ID card. Name Changes: If your name is different than what is shown on your birth certificate, you will need to provide evidence of a legal name change, such as a marriage certificate, divorce decree or court action. If your driver’s license or state ID card is not REAL ID compliant, you may show another form of acceptable documentation, such as a valid U.S. passport or passport card.

IMPORTANT for anyone who rents their property...
The Michigamme Township Board has passed a Short Term Rental Ordinance to minimize impact to our beautiful lake and to protect nearby property owners. All who intend to rent their vacation home on a short-term basis must apply for a rental permit from the Township Office by October 31, 2019. The application fee is $10.00. If a permit is granted, an additional $40.00 will be collected. Those who do short-term rentals without a permit will be subject to fines, or may be denied a permit in the future.
