Marshall County Commissioners to Meet Today


The Marshall County commissioners will meet today with a host of items to discuss.

Bart Trester of USI will provide the commissioners with an update on the 7th Road project and the Metronet project. The Metronet project is ahead of schedule while the 7th Road project continues. An update on the Jefferson Street bridge will also be provided by a USI representative.

Ward Byers from Court Services will be before the board for approval of an employment contract and Stacy Richer will have a request to vacate a street on county-owned property.

Routine reports will be given by County Attorney Jim Clevenger and Highway Administrator Laurie Baker.

Next year provides an odd year for pay schedules as one more pay will need to be added due to the way the weeks fall in the next year. Auditor Penny Lukenbill will be bringing that to the attention of the commissioners as well as the holiday schedule.

The Marshall County commissioners will also welcome any public comment during the meeting that begins at 8:30 a.m. ET in the second floor meeting room in the Marshall County Building.
