MARQUETTE — Marquette water customers may let their water run for up to five hours a day to prevent water line freeze-ups, City Manager Dale Iman said. Iman suggested that residents let water run during the night when temperatures and water demand are the lowest. The stream of water should be regulated to not exceed a quart per minute. Utility customers will receive a 3-unit credit per month on both water and sewer bills, he said. The credit is equal to the volume of water suggested for wasting.

MARQUETTE — Several motorists have been complaining about youth hooking onto the back of their automobile to steal a ride. One irate woman who has been startled on multiple occasions by this has issued an ultimatum: “If any youngsters jump on my car, or I see them on any other, I am going to try to get them by the collar and take them down to the police station. If that hooking rides on cars doesn’t stop, somebody is going to get badly injured.” Since that conversation other folks have commented upon the same situation. The nuisance becomes especially apparent at noon when the children are going home from school.
