PLYMOUTH â€” â€śIn all the years Iâ€™ve been looking at budgets these are the best Iâ€™ve ever seen.â€ť
Most of the Marshall County Council could echo the sentiments expressed by President of the Council Matt Hassel as it concluded the second day of budget hearings for the coming year. The reason for the feeling was simple.
â€śThese were serious, bare bones budgets,â€ť said Hassel. â€śI think it proves that all our department heads are aware of the kind of economy we still face and are willing to work with us to get done what we have to get done.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€”Â Itâ€™s unclear what started the â€śgas warâ€ť among several Plymouth gasoline stations Tuesday; but local motorists wasted no time in getting to the pumps.
The Murphy station just off of U.S. 30 apparently was the first to drop its price to $3.19 a gallon. As the word spread, others stations starting matching that price and eventually going lower.
