Last week the Plymouth Board of Public Works and Safety received an update on the application process for the Fire Fighter/EMT that ended on Wednesday, June 15th.  Chief Holm said he has a number of applications, and some applicants are good candidates.  He said he hasn’t received any applications for a paramedic. 

Street Superintendent Jim Marquardt said he is working with E&B Paving on the 2022 Street and Sidewalk projects.  They are working on getting the city projects into their schedule. 

Requests included closing Garro Street from Michigan Street to the post office alley for the Plymouth Public Library for the One Book One City event on Saturday, October 15th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Activities include a chili cook-off and games for families and information on local non-profits awareness and their benefits. 

The second request came from Laura Mann, the Promotion of the City Coordinator.  She asked to have checks for the bands performing for the Mayor’s Month of Music cut prior to the event so she can pay each band the night they perform. 

The final request was to release the stormwater financial guarantee for Farm Innovators.  City Attorney Sean Surrisi said this is from a project in 2017.  There is still some minor additional work to be completed and the $13,600 would assist in completing the project. 

After some discussion, the Plymouth Board of Public Works and Safety approved all three requests.
