Marinette Sports and Event CenterIt might’ve taken three rounds of votes, hours of discussion between the 31-member board of supervisors, the Mayor of Marinette, and the county administrator but an agreement is made by Marinette County Board of Supervisors at yesterday’s Marinette County Board Meeting.
