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.
