PAUL ANDERSON, of Ironwood, addresses the Gogebic County Board of Commissioners Tuesday, seeking support for the Bessemer to Ramsay phase 3 of the Gogebic County Iron Belle Trail project. About 30 people attended the meeting, with many addressing the trail funding issue.


BESSEMER - The third phase of the Iron Belle Trail development in Gogebic County is shaping up as a $1.6 million project.

The Gogebic County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday agreed to again be a sponsor to seek funding for the project, this time from Bessemer to Ramsay. The board agreed on a 5-0 vote to back the project, provided around $27,000 that is owed to the county from phase 2 is paid back by the end of the year. That money is being held up in a dispute with the project contractor that has required the second project phase to be extended.
