The Marshall County Drainage Board and Commissioners will meet Monday morning in the second-floor meeting room of the County Building. Both meetings will be live-streamed on the county’s website at www.marshall.in.us
The Drainage Board meeting begins at 8:30 and the agenda includes a request to approve a new crossing of the Schuh Ditch by Dan Sharp in the Newcomb Eisenhour Watershed. The Bowen Center also has a request for a variance on the Schuh Tile and drainage board members will receive an update on the EutroSORB filter bags at Lake of the Woods on the George Stephey Ditch.
The Commissioner’s meeting begins at 9:30 in the same room. Their agenda includes a report from Highway Superintendent Jason Peters along with an update on the road work in the Southpoint subdivision by Del Wenzel.
Deb VanDeMark is on the agenda again. She will be asking the commissioners to place a 2-year moratorium on any large-scale solar projects to give the county time to review their current ordinance to make sure it gives Marshall County residents protection from impacts from solar farms.
Tom McFadden, Chairman of the Regional Sewer Board will give the commissioners an update on creating the first project for the Regional Sewer Board.
The County Commissioners will also receive reports from the County Attorney, County Auditor, and Public Comments.
The commissioners are expected to appoint Sarah Lukenbill to the Plymouth Public Library Board and discuss their additional appropriation request presented to the Council in the amount of $137,017 for the east steps last week. The council sent it back to the commissioners and suggested they present it using funds from the Special Jail LIT fund instead of the General Fund.
The Commissioner’s agenda also includes amending the ordinance on approval and administration of grants, consideration of the Cender Dalton agreement, approval of the 2023 Hazard Mitigation Plan, and a recommendation from the county’s ARP subcommittee for the Highway Department.
The Drainage Board meeting and Commissioners meeting are open to the public and comments and questions are always welcomed.
