PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth Common Council held a public hearing last night that marks one of the first formal actions to apply for a Main Street grant.
At the July 25 meeting, City Attorney Nelson Chipman requested the public hearing, although a committee striving to identify specific projects had not yet come to a consensus. The application for the federal grant that is administered through the office of Community and Rural Affairs in Indiana is not due until October of this year; however the project proposal must be submitted by Aug. 15.
PLYMOUTH â€” In the course of considering changing Marshall County building inspector Chuck DeWittâ€™s position from part-time to full-time, county council members happened upon another topicâ€”the amount that the county actually receives for doing building inspections.
DeWitt, who does all the building inspections for the countyâ€™s communities, collects a fee of $50 per project. This amount is the same no matter how far DeWitt travels to do the inspection, or how many times he visits the same project.
Lincy Mae Jones, a local teen from Oregon-Davis High School, recently won the 2011 United States Fastpitch Association 16U Northern National Championship with her team, based out of Plainfield. The Hurricanes went undefeated to win the 2011 USFA event, outscoring opponents 42-14 and only trailing briefly during the first game en route to securing the hardware.
The Hurricanes summer tournament schedule took them through Ohio, Illinois and Indiana.
