BESSEMER — The Gogebic County Board of Commissioners on Wednesday acted to draft a letter expressing concerns about how COVID-19 rules and regulations are established for border counties.
The board 7-0 approved a letter to be drafted by board chair James Lorenson, to be submitted to Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. The concerns of Gogebic County to be expressed are how the pandemic rules do not consider the unique nature of the western-most point of the Upper Peninsula with shared borders to Iron and Vilas counties in Wisconsin.
