Marshall County Commissioners to Meet Today


The Marshall County Commissioners will meet today where Bart Trester from USI will give an update on the 7th Road construction project, the Metronet project and work on the Jefferson Street bridge.

The commissioners will also have the second reading of an ordinance regulating construction setbacks at Pretty Lake. Plan Director Ralph Booker explained in a public hearing that the Pretty Lake Homeowners Association approved a change where new construction at the lake would need to be a 45 foot setback from an 789.0 elevation line.

Commissioner Deb Griewank cast the only dissenting vote for the ordinance stating that a resident’s sight for scenery is forward and not from side to side.

EMA Director Clyde Avery will present a grant agreement for approval and annual updates will be given on the Marshall County Economic Development Commission and the Culver Boys and Girls Club.

The Marshall County Commissioners will meet at 8:30 a.m. ET in the second floor meeting room of the Marshall County building in Plymouth.
