Plymouth residents will now be able to have access to the same online permitting system available to the county for various activities including construction. The agreement is similar to the one already in place for towns in Marshall County.
Also passed was an agreement with Plymouth for the services of Marshall County Plan Director Ralph Booker. Booker has served in a dual capacity by agreement with the city of Plymouth. This year’s agreement between the two governmental bodies calls for an increase in payment to the county that will now be $7210.
Part of this year’s agreement will require that Booker keep close track of his duties for the city while on county time. While the measure was approved it did garner some discussion.
Commissioner Jack Roose voted for the agreement but cited that he felt some of the tracking duties required of Booker, “…seemed a little like overkill,” and Commissioner Kevin Overmyer voted no to the motion saying he felt that it was “cumbersome.”
