04/09/12 The City of Plymouth will conduct their meetings on Monday beginning at 6 p.m. with the Board of Public Works and Safety meeting followed by the Common Council.

The Board of Public Works & Safety will award the quote to repairs to the front of the fire house.  Also on the agenda are reports from the city department heads.  Street Superintendent Jim Marquardt will present a change order for the 2011 Street & Sidewalk projects and the 2012 Sidewalk Improvements.  The board is also expected to accept the 2011 Annual Reports of Operations for the Wastewater Treatment Plant and the Water Treatment Plant.

The Common Council meeting is scheduled to begin at 6:30 with a full agenda.   Council members are set to consider ordinances pertaining to the “Sidewalk Improvement Program” on second and third readings.

An ordinance to amend the Water rates for the City of Plymouth will be heard on first reading.  During a special session on March 19th the Common Council reviewed the 2011 financial management reports and capital projects for the water and wastewater departments with the assistance of financial consultants from Umbaugh & Associates.  Their recommendation was to implement small incremental rate increases of 3% each year in 2012, 2013, and 2014.

Another ordinance up for consideration is the repealing of a city ordinance regarding smoking areas in public buildings.  Two resolutions are also on the agenda for Community Improvement Rehabilitation Interest Subsidy grants for Dave Langdon and Al Myers.

The final agenda item is a presentation by Marshall County EMA Director Clyde Avery on his experience being deployed to the Henryville tornado and the unexpected expenses the city had to face during cleanup.

The City meetings are open to the public for comments and questions.
