Supervisor Report – October 9, 2018

1. After discussion, I’ve decided against asking MDOT and Michigan State Police to conduct a speed study on the M-77 hill coming into town. I was informed that once a speed study is requested, MDOT and Michigan State Police would look at ALL measures of safety. This could result in NOT allowing ANY PARKING on M-77 in the downtown area. We certainly DON’T want that to happen.

2. Burt Township Board has been asked to figure out the cost of a full-time deputy in Grand Marais.

Full-Time Wages

Base Pay (Per Union Contract):  $39,748.80

13 Holidays x 8 Hours =              104 Hours

    104 Hours x $19.37 =               $2,014.48


                Total Wages =               $41,763.28

            Fringe Benefits =               $16,003.69
Blue Cross/Blue Shield =               $11,000.00
                      Overtime =                $2,500.00
                              Fuel =                $3,200.00

                     Total Cost =               $74,466.97


*Quote without patrol car, deputy gear, and office space

Halftime deputy would be around $37,233.48.

One mil would generate about $50,000
Full-time would be 1.5 mil

Half-time would be 1mil
