PLYMOUTH - The Plymouth Common Council voted a â€śno faultâ€ť tax abatement to Zentis Food Solutions Monday night.
In the Councilâ€™s previous session earlier this month Kevin Chestnut - tax advisor for the North American branch of the German company - came before the board to ask for the extension of a tax abatement offered the company when it first considered where it was going to place its base of North American operations. In 2006, the Council voted Zentis a two-year abatement when the company had requested a five-year abatement for the project.
Missing area teen found after search
PLYMOUTH - Family members and local law enforcement were involved early Monday in the search for an area high school student Tristan McCallum.
McCallumâ€™s family confirms that he left their home around 6:30 p.m. Sunday evening wearing only shorts and a dark gray shirt and without any money or cell phone. He was on foot after leaving the family home Sunday evening. A resident of the Donaldson area he has friends in South Bend and Mishawaka and family feared he could have also been picked up by a passing motorist.
As a result of new state standards, Culver's EMS service will make a marked change in 2014; Culver's town council met with members of the service last Tuesday to consider just what that change will look like.
