Fund, fee waiver apps available

MARQUETTE — The city of Marquette is announcing promotional fund and discount fee waiver applications are available.

The Marquette City Code “provides a mechanism for community stakeholders to submit for waivers of city fees and/or in-kind services provided by the city and/or cash payments,” an announcement from the city states. “Requests for promotional funds may include grant funding, fee relief, provision of in-kind city services, cash or a combination of any of all of these items.”

Applications for fiscal year 2020-21, which runs Oct. 1 through Sept. 30, 2021, must be received or postmarked by March 31 of this year. Any applications received or postmarked after this date will not be eligible for consideration, city officials said. Not all applications may be funded and funding will depend upon city priorities and available dollars, officials said in an announcement.
