11/01/13 Members of the Plymouth Common Council had to appoint a member to the Redevelopment Commission during their meeting this week. The appointment was necessary to replace Don Wendel who had to resign his position since he has recently moved outside of the city limits.
Three citizens tossed their hats into the ring for the position; attorney Jeff Houin, retired construction worker Bill Ellinger and former school board member Frank Brubaker.
Council president Mike Delp asked to nominations from the council. Both Bill Ellinger and Frank Brubaker were nominated. In a voice vote of 3 to 2 Bill Ellinger was appointed to the position.
Under new business Councilman Mike Delp expressed his concern with a house at 607 South Michigan Street that has extremely long grass. The grass is between 8 and 10 inches long and some weeds are as high as 24 inches.
Delp said a constituent has asked him to have the property mowed. The city will take the necessary action to get the residential property cleaned up.
