The Plymouth Board of Public Works and Safety approved several requests during their meeting last week.
Tina Jacobs from Caker Properties at 401 East Jefferson Street requested a water meter reduction from a 2 inch to a 1 inch at the property.
Utility Superintendent Donny Davidson told the board she followed the proper procedures and has submitted justification for the reduction. He was in agreement to reduce the meter size and so was the Plymouth Board of Public Works and Safety.
St. Michael Church asked for permission to conduct their annual Holy Procession Walk in honor of the Virgin Mary on December 12th from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The request includes using Berkley Street, Polk Street, East Jefferson Street and North Center Street. The Board of Works approved the request.
The next two requests were for two residences that had extremely large water bills. The first one was on Pearl Street and was caused due to a leaking toilet. Their November 4th bill was $1,183.04. The clerk treasurer suggested having them pay $200 per month on the past due bill along with the current billing and if they stay current the penalties will be waived.
The second incident was on Lake Avenue and their November will was $254,86. The clerk treasurer suggested having the resident pay $50 to 475 a month on the past due bill along with the current billing. If the customer stays current the city will waive the penalties.
The Board of Public Works and Safety motioned to authorize the Clerk Treasure to enter into a payment plans with the customers.
The final request came from Laura Mann, Promotion of the City Coordinator. She requested permission to close North Michigan Street from Adams Street to LaPorte Street and Adams to Washington Street for the annual Holiday Parade on Saturday, November 27th from 5:45 to 6:30. She said the INDOT permit has been secured for the closing. The Board approved the request.
