The Plymouth Board of Public Works and Safety acted on several requests during their meeting Monday evening, September 13th.
Plymouth Fire Chief Steve Holm told the board he accepted the resignation of Chad Kinney as Assistant Chief last week. He said Kinney will stay on as a firefighter.
The Chief said he would continue to operate with one assistant chief for a while and entertain hiring the second chief’s position later on.
Street Superintendent Jim Marquardt addressed the request for a NO PARKING sign at 200 Alexander Steet. Max and Rebecca Hatfield say people park on the street and block their entrance to their driveway, garage and alley.
Superintendent Marquardt said he drove by 5 different times last week and never saw a car parked on their side of the street.
Mayor Senter said he has talked with the Hatfields and they have put their own signs on the garage. He also asked the Police Chief to see if complaints have been made to the department. It was mentioned that it is against the law to block someone’s driveway or the alley way and police can write a citation for such.
The Board of Public Works and Safety tabled any action to allow members to observe the issue for a decision at their next meeting.
The City Engineer presented two requests to work in the right-of-way. Comcast was granted permission to work at 500 West Monroe Street while ChoiceLight will be installing fiber to the new Goodwill on Pilgrim Lane. Each will provide a $5,000 financial guarantee.
