MARQUETTE, MI--   The City of Marquette has won an award from the Salt Institute. 

The 2012 Safe and Sustainable Snow Fighting Award was given to communities who effectively manage the storage of winter road salt and exhibit environmental consciousness.  Winners also use best management practices to protect public safety during winter road maintenance.
