Wisconsin Administration Secretary Michael L. Morgan was in Superior this morning to present two grants to Mayor Dave Ross.

The city will receive more than $44,000 in Wisconsin Coastal Management grants to assist plans to reconstruct Arrowhead Pier and create and outdoor classroom in the Superior Municipal Forest.

The projects for funding include Arrowhead Pier reconstruction planning for $32,544 and outdoor classroom in Superior Municipal Forest for $11,500.

"The Great Lakes are an important cultural, natural and economic resource to Wisconsin," Gov. Jim Doyle said in a prepared statement. "Lakes Superior and Michigan are intrinsically linked with our state and are essential to protect. Caring for Lake Superior and ensuring that we protect its waters for future generations is imperative. As such, I am greatly pleased to be able to provide support to local organizations working towards protecting Lake Superior's coastal resources."

Recipients for this year's grants were recommended by the Wisconsin Coastal Management Council, a citizen and governmental advisory group appointed by the governor. The funds are part of Wisconsin's federally funded Coastal Management Program.
