The Plymouth Redevelopment Corporation will choose a contractor for the new River Park Square at its April 16 meeting. E&B Paving of Rochester and Michiana Contracting both bid on the project. Both bids include a base amount and several alternate options, including a performance space, a fountain, a furnace in the restrooms and a pergola in the farmer’s market. The budget for the project is $1.5 million. The Plymouth Park Board, the Redevelopment Commission and the city council will review the bids prior to the April 16 meeting.

WKVI News Director Mary Perren is glad to be back home in northern Indiana and on the radio. She’s a North Judson native with more than 20 years of news experience. She’s worked in print and radio news in Indianapolis, Hopkinsville, Ky., Nashville, Tenn. and most recently in Winamac before taking over as news director for Kankakee Valley Broadcasting in February of 2013. Her work has been honored by the Associated Press, StateNets News Association, Curb Foundation, Hoosier State Press Association and IBA. When she’s not sitting in the anchor chair or chasing down news, Mary enjoys shopping for antiques, attending concerts and taking long walks and rides in her vintage Saab convertible, weather permitting. She’s also a hopelessly devoted Chicago Cubs fanatic who still cringes at the mention of Steve Garvey and Josh Beckett and maintains it wasn’t Steve Bartman’s fault.
