As local governing bodies get comfortable with their new members and roles, Algoma Mayor Wayne Schmidt is happy to see new blood in his chambers. The Algoma City Council was left with big shoes to fill when Jan Dart and Janice Mueller announced they would not run for re-election after years of service. Political newcomers Scott Meverden in District 2 and Jake Maring in District 4 were sworn in last month and assigned to their new committees during the council’s organizational meeting. Schmidt says he gave them some advice before they took office.
The Algoma City Council meets on the first Monday of every month.
