      Michigamme receives $258,000 grant

      On February 28 the Michigamme Downtown Development Authority received a $258,581.00 grant from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation.

      Michigamme Township received the check Saturday morning at their community building at 202 West Main Street in Michigamme.

      The Michigamme DDA applied for a streetscape improvement grant. The application included replacing sidewalks, new energy efficient lighting, storm water filtering and retaining rain gardens, handicap accessible sidewalk ramps and gateway signage.

      The township is committing $65,000 to match the grant.

      Construction is expected to start mid-summer.
