PLYMOUTH â€” Updated wiring for the elevators and new automatic doors may be in store for the Marshall County Building, if the funds needed are approved.
During the county council meeting Monday, Rich Ulrich, maintenance director, brought up the need for the two elevators in the county building to be updated.
It was a fitting time to discuss the problem, since one of the elevators was again out of commission â€” blocked off by caution tape and a trash can.
â€śAs we sit here, that elevator is out of service for the 28th time in the last 10 weeks,â€ť said Ulrich.
