PLYMOUTH â€” Some Marshall County projects are getting ready to begin. Others have completed in an efficient manner.
Brent Martin came before the Marshall County Commissioners with a final change order on the new Marshall County Historical Society Museum. Some parts of the project came in at a considerable savings while others were added to the final product.
All told, the final price tag on the museum is $360,684 with the original cost of $354,623. The final change order put the project over budget by only $6,061. The Historical Society will reimburse the county for that amount.
PLYMOUTH â€” Eight years ago, Plymouth Police Department Cpl. Bridget (Strong) Hite set out to do two things.

As she drove around town on patrol, Hite noticed day after day that kids were walking and standing in snow covered sidewalks with nothing but wet shoes on.
PLYMOUTH â€” The county will take a look at government buildings and energy use in the coming months.

Commissioners Jack Roose and Kevin Overmyer had met with Heirbrandt at a recent conference and discussed the possibility of Ameresco performing the audit on county properties.
Ameresco will take two years of county utility bills for each building to examine trends.
PLYMOUTH â€” Dedication is a common theme to excellence at anything.
Plymouth Rockie Calvin Eads is proof of that belief as the senior linebacker has been honored by the Indiana Football Coaches Association and the Indianapolis Colts as an Indiana Academic All Star Team member.

He is one of only three Class 4A athletes to be selected and he and his peers will will be honored in Indianapolis on December 19 at halftime of the Coltsâ€™ home game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.Â
