The Plymouth Board of Public Works and Safety and the Common Council will meet Monday evening, June 12th at 6 and 6:30 in the second-floor Council Chambers of City Hall.

The Board of Public Works and Safety will hear from various city department heads and is expected to ratify the bid award for the 2023 Street Paving Projects.

The board will consider three requests.  The first is to close Michigan Street for the Annual Tractor Show on Saturday, July 22nd.  The second request is to close Michigan Street for the city’s sesquicentennial celebration and the merchant’s block party on Thursday, June 22nd from 4 to 8.  The final request comes from the Plymouth Kilwinning Masonic Lodge.  They would like to use the water tower lot by Pilgrim Manor for their annual fundraiser of parking cars during the Blueberry Festival.

Under Other Business, there will be a discussion of exchanging property with Centennial Crossing and Collins Leasing for a small residential lot near Pilgrim Manor.  In exchange, the city and park department would receive 8.5 acres north of Price’s Pond.  The Board of Public Works will also consider a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Plymouth Community School Corp. and the Plymouth Police Department for two school resource officers and an MOU with the Collins Brothers for the property at 1619 North Oak Drive for future sidewalk property. 

The Common Council will consider the Executive Order passed by the Mayor regarding Tax Abatement Compliance Forms and a resolution approving the application of David Leffel from Beary’s Ice Cream for a Community Revitalization Rebate Program Grant. The property which includes Simplee Stated Gifts is located at 203 North Michigan Street and is owned by Talking Bear Estate out of North Liberty. 

The city meetings are open to the public and those attending should enter through the Garro Street door and take the stairs or elevator to the second floor for the meeting.  The meeting is also streamed live on the city’s website.
