Members of the Marshall County Drainage Board met Monday morning for a short meeting. Erick Operman representing Gilmon Enterprise the owners of the Taco Bell and King Gyro buildings in Plymouth told the board they would like to replat the properties into one parcel since they own both but when the buildings were built they were constructed within the county’s 75 foot ditch right-of-way.
County Surveyor Larry Fisher said they had the same issue with the former Plymouth Vet building, currently daycare center directly to the west and a variance was granted to them so they could install a privacy fence.
The County Drainage Board also opened maintenance bids for the Newcomb-Eisenhour Ditch which will begin on Oak Drive at Mid City Supply and continue east, downstream to the NorFolk Southern Railroad. Maintenance work includes clearing trees and brush off approximately 2130 feet of the north side of the Newcomb-Eisenhour Ditch and clean approximately 1970 feet.
Four companies submitted bids for the job: Langfeldt Excavating from Plymouth bid $15,840, Kolesiak Construction from Akron bid $13,870 and low bidder was Hunter Transit from Milford with a bid of $13,500. LDP Excavating from Warsaw failed to enclose the required check.
