Marshall County Commissioners to Discuss Several Items in Today’s Meeting


The Marshall County Commissioners will consider a change order request from USI Consultants’ Bart Trester when they meet today. Trester oversees the 7th Road project and the roundabout project on North Michigan Road in Plymouth. Trester indicated earlier this month that crews are waiting for word from the state to move ahead, barring any more issues with the HMX mix design. The mix of aggregate and asphalt binder is causing buckling pavement in other locations across the state. Crews are awaiting final approval of the combination to install the mix.

Marshall County Council on Aging Director Jackie Wright will present a contract renewal. The organization does receive a portion of funding from the county. Their annual agreement will be considered today. Sheriff Tom Chamberlin will also recognize officers with awards.

This will be the first meeting of the commissioners since the Local Option Highway User Tax proposal failed to reach a vote with the Marshall County Council members last week. Highway Administrator Laurie Baker and Supervisor of County Highways Jason Peters will give the governing body an update from their department.

The commissioners will meet at 9:30 a.m. ET in the second-floor meeting room in the Marshall County Building in Plymouth.
