Plymouth Utility Superintendent Donnie Davidson gave members of the Board of Public Works and Safety an update on the closed-circuit televising unit for the city’s sewers.
The unit which was ordered at the end of December was expected to be delivered in June but was delivered in early April, two months ahead of time, which is very unusual. Davidson said they were lucky to get the chassis reserved and training will begin in the next week or two.
The price of the closed-circuit televising unit came in a $274,448 with no unexpected expenses.
Board of Works members also heard from John Cannon from the Indiana Attorney General’s Office. He explained the variety of services the Attorney General’s Office offers citizens. He encouraged individuals, businesses, and even government agencies to check Indiana Unclaimed. Cannon said there is $725 million waiting to be claimed. The funds come from dormant bank account balances, unpaid back wages, unclaimed insurance proceeds, stock dividends, and public benefits including money left in grants. The Indiana Office of the Attorney General works diligently to return the funds owed to eligible Indiana residents every year.
Mr. Cannon said the money is held by the state for 25 years and 1 day and if not claimed, the state gets it back.
Other services offered by the Attorney General’s Office are consumer complaints, scams, identity theft, and Medicaid fraud. He also suggested citizens register with the state and federal do not call lists to reduce the number of robo phone calls.
