5th ward councillor appointed

Wally Cain has been appointed as 5th ward councillor for the City of Ludington.


All three who ran received nominations for the position, but the winner would still need 4 votes to be confirmed by the council. In the first round of voting, both Wally Cain and Steve Miller received 3 votes with Micheal Shaw receiving the lone vote from Dick Rathsack. During the next vote, councillor Rathsack voted for Cain, resulting in the required 4 votes and the appointment of Wally Cain as 5th Ward councillor.


Friday Night Live returns to Ludington

Downtown Ludington Board has prepared another year of Friday Night Live for locals and visitors to enjoy. “We want to showcase James Street this year.” said  Jen Tooman, who plans this event for the Downtown Ludington Board. “There are so many new businesses that have opened and there are even more slated to open by the end of this year. We also anticipated the start of construction on the new housing development at Ludington and Rath avenues which may have conflicted with some of our activities near the community garden.”


The events, which take place from 6-9pm on July 14th, 21st, 28th and August 4th will feature live music stages, inflatables, pony rides, Baby Badger rides, and a singing competition. More than 60 businesses and organizations will have booths with free activities as well. Many downtown restaurants will be offering street food like BBQ pork, hot dogs and italian sausage. You’ll also find treats like elephant ears, cotton candy, kettle corn and shaved ice from various food vendors. Check for a complete list of activities and performers for each event.
