Michigan Mayors Gather at St. Ignace for Training Workshop
Twenty-four mayors from northern Michigan attended the Michigan Association of Mayors summer workshop Wednesday, August 4, to Friday, August 6, at Little Bear East Arena in St. Ignace.
The event featured workshops on technology, entrepreneurship, and social media, and a narrated bus tour of the city.
Midland's City Mayor Maureen Donker demonstrated how the city has implemented a policy to stream council meetings online, which received positive feedback from St. Ignace Mayor Paul Grondin, who thinks the city should pursue it. Midland's Web site allows anyone to view council meetings live or archived.
The event was sponsored locally by First National Bank of St. Ignace.
