Here are some photos which were actually taken earlier in the week. A lot of things happening to the old girl to put her up to spec. You can see the hydraulic motors that will propel the ship in the below deck area, the engine will sit on the deck in an insulated enclosure which will be very accessible for maintenance.

#199 Beaver Island-Charlevoix County Issues

Posted by gillespie on 26 April 2011 - 08:22 PM

As the elected representative of District 6 I have been enjoying the challenge and look forward to serving the district. So far I have been able to secure a water wagon to aid in wetting dry island roads during droughty times and am meeting with the road commission manager and engineer tomorrow, Wednesday, to discuss roads in Norwood Township. I welcome input on District 6 issues and would hope that people take the time to post their questions. If it is something you would like direct contact on you can send a private message through this site. Look forward to hearing from you!

#5 Welcome to the Charlevoix County Forum

Welcome all to the Charlevoix County Forum. In my campaign to represent the 6th District of Charlevoix County I found that there was no common area for people to share their thoughts on county politics, events and issues. We started this forum to allow people to know and share the issues we all face each day and particularly to keep people informed on the issues dealt with by the County Board of Commissioners so that you all know what is going on with your tax dollar. Let's work together to keep Charlevoix County a pleasant place to live!
