01/27/14 A special joint meeting of the Plymouth Common Council and Park Department is scheduled for tonight at 6:30 in the Council Chambers of City Hall. Both boards will be discussing the proposed new tennis complex that will be located directly to the north of the current tennis courts.
Tennis Club committee members have been working on a solution to the issues with the current tennis courts at the back of Centennial Park for a number of years. Originally they had planned to construct new and improved courts on the current location but new FEMA Flood Plain maps in November 2012 put the property in the Flood Way which severely limited the possibility of construction of new courts and made it nearly impossible to make any improvements to the foundation where they currently sit.
In December 2012 the Plymouth Park Board recommended moving the courts directly across the driveway to the north after looking at several locations throughout the park system.
Tonight the Common Council will be asked to consider a resolution in support of the project with future funding to assist with the construction of the new tennis courts.
Prior to the Common Council meeting the Board of Public Works and Safety will meet at 6 p.m. Their agenda includes a public hearing and an affirmation order to take action on an unsafe building at 712 North 4th Street.
City department heads will present the reports and the City Engineer will seek appointments to the Common Construction Wage Committee for the 2014 Street Projects. Last week the County Commissioners appointed Judy Stone as their representative on the committee.
City Attorney Sean Surrisi will present an inter-local government agreement between the Marshall County Commissioners and the City of Plymouth for Online Permitting Services.
Both meetings are open to the public although comments and questions are limited to agenda items only.
