Plymouth Board of Public Works Ratifies Executive Order to Close Street

January 29, 2020

Ak Industries_1Members of the Plymouth Board of Public Works and Safety ratified Executive Order 2020-01 during their meeting Monday evening.   The order was for the temporary closure of Stanley Drive.

City Attorney Sean Surrisi said the request was made to temporarily close Stanley Drive between city meetings.  The closure request was made to unload equipment for the expansion of AK Industries at the building they recently purchased from Hehr.

Councilman Jeff Houin asked if there was any damage to the city streets from the weight of the truck and equipment.   The semi came in on Saturday and had to sit on Stanley Drive until Monday when the equipment was unloaded.
