For the first time since 2010, the city's mayor reports back to the residents of Superior about what has been accomplished in the last year and lays out an agenda for the coming year.
The Superior City Council approved most of the bids for construction of a new fire hall on Tower Avenue. But after questions were raised on whether the low bidder for plumbing and heating, ventilation and air conditioning met the requirements of the city's responsible bidder ordinance, the Council referred that decision to its next meeting to gather additional facts.
Voters cast their ballots Tuesday, deciding numerous local races, from the Douglas County Board to municipal leaders. In Superior, voters returned incumbents to office, while rural Douglas County voters defeated one incumbent running in two contested races. In other municipal races, voters in the villages of Lake Nebagamon and Poplar, and the town of Solon Springs narrowed the field of candidates to fill their boards.
Councilors Tylor Elm in the 6th and Keith Kern in the 9th held off challenges from Martina Tendrup and Jessica Peterson, respectively.
Voters elected both school board candidates on the ballot Tuesday, plus one write-in candidate to the Superior School Board.
Voters in Douglas County head to the polls today to decide referendums, local school board, municipal and county races, and a statewide race for Wisconsin Supreme Court. Voters also decide whether or not to change the state constitution to eliminate an elected treasurer.
When Douglas County voters head to the polls next week, there will be a few changes on the County Board.
Voters head to the polls next week to decide who will represent them for the next two years in Superior's 3rd and 9th Council district. In the 6th District special election, voters decide who will represent them for a one-year term. Voters cast their ballots April 3.
Wisconsin wasn't even a state when its office of territorial treasurer was created in 1839.
The Superior Police Department will soon have a less militaristic look when officers respond to a critical incident. On Tuesday, the Superior City Council approved the purchase of an armored tactical response vehicle for the department's emergency response team. About $250,000 of the $300,000 vehicle will be paid for by Aligned Law Enforcement Regional Teams (ALERT) through the Wisconsin Department of Emergency Management.
