Canal View has the support of Houghton County’s Board of Commissioners and many of its residents. This afternoon in a special meeting, Commissioner Janssen was absent due to a prior commitment, the Houghton County Board of Commissioners passed resolution 2022 – 13 A, showing their support of Canal View advocating for a conversation around loosening covid restriction in long term care facilities. The original resolution was reviewed and did not pass with a vote of 2 to 2, Codere and Anderson voted no. The second resolution, 2022 – 13 A, passed in a vote of 4 to zero, all four present commissioners voted yes. The newer resolution clarified language that turned some commissioners away during the commission’s meeting this past Tuesday. The resolution will now move up the chain and be distributed to Senators Stabenow and Peters as well as Congressman Bergman. We will have more information on the special meeting and the resolution for our newscast on Monday. 91 people attended the meeting via zoom, with another 123 in physical attendance.
