McMorran Authority to become McMorran Commission

Port Huron City Council electing to not renew the McMorran Authority and instead run the civic center as a commission that reports to council. The authority was set to expire at the end of last year and was extended for three months as council put a plan together. Mayor Pauline Repp says that plan includes disbanding the authority and re-appointing its members to a newly formed commission. The new McMorran Civic Center Commission will report to council and will not have the ability to ask the voters for a millage. Council voted six to one to appoint the commission, with Council member Scott Worden being the lone no vote.
