WEST, Texas (AP) â€” Rescue workers searched rubble that witnesses compared to a war zone early Thursday for survivors of a fertilizer plant explosion in a small Texas town that killed as many as 15 people and injured more than 160 others. The blast left the factory a smoldering ruin and leveled homes and businesses for blocks in every direction.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth Redevelopment Commission has a contractor to start work on the city's new River Park Square.
At their meeting on Tuesday night the Commission awarded the contract to Michiana Contracting - who had the low bid - but was also able to incorporate the city's "wish list" for the project.
Michiana had a base bid of slightly over $1.3 million for the project. Adding all of the alternates for the project would push it to just slightly over the budget price at a little over $1.6 million.
