Boyne City Board of Commissioners Approve Three Potential Marina Improvement Grants

The Boyne City Board of Commissioners discussed future plans for the city’s marina.

For almost 20 years, the community has discussed how to improve the marina. The commission approved the applications for three potential grants in Tuesday’s meeting.

The grants involve extensions of water and electrical systems, a replacement of one of the smaller docks and wave insinuators, which protect the boats in the marina and the docks themselves from strong waves.

“We have a lot of people that visit Boyne City by boat as much as they come in by car or by plane, and we want to make sure that we have quality facilities, appropriately sized that can receive those people,” said Michael Cain the City Manager of Boyne City.

While Tuesday’s approval was to apply for grants, this is not a final determination on what the board will do. Continuing discussions will move forward in the months ahead.
