12/12/11 The City of Plymouth will hold its regular meetings Monday evening beginning at 6 p.m. with the Board of Public Works and Safety. Their agenda includes opening bids for the 2012 street materials and reports from department heads. The City Engineer will ask the board to consider accepting the infrastructure improvements in the Tech Farm while the City Attorney will discuss the application for permit to aerial and buried telephone facilities.
A representative from the Marshall County Humane Society will attend the meeting to discuss their contract and services with the city. Two weeks ago the annual contract for $29,125 was presented but during discussions it was learned that sometimes the police department has to house animals overnight or over the weekend because the Humane Society won’t come out after hours. Council members asked to have the executive director appear before them. Councilman Chuck Ripley even suggested raising the contract amount to “remove the burden on the police.”
The Plymouth Common Council meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. The only agenda item is the second and third reading of the ordinance fixing salaries for elected officials for 2012.
The city meetings begin at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers of City Hall. The public is welcome to attend but questions and comments are limited to agenda items only.
