Hannah MacDonald of Alpena has been named to the Underwater Salvage and Preserve Committee by Governor Rick Snyder.
Supported by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, the nine-member committee provides technical and other advice with respect to maintaining Michigan's 13 underwater preserves. It makes recommendations regarding the creation and boundaries of Great Lakes underwater preserves, reviews applications for underwater salvage permits, gives recommendations regarding issuance of permits, and provides input regarding the charging of permit fees and the use of revenue generated.
"I thank Hannah for her commitment to this board and to the important task of protecting Michigan’s underwater preserves," Snyder said Thursday (10-5).
MacDonald will serve a three-year term expiring in August of 2019. Her appointment is subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.
