County, Plymouth, Bourbon partnering for second try at grant

PLYMOUTH - Marshall County will enter into the federal grant waters for a second time this year.

Last year the county along with the city of Plymouth and town of Bourbon sought a federal “Brownfields Grant” through the Environmental Protection Agency. A brownfield site - or simply a brownfield - is land previously used for industrial purposes or some commercial uses. The land may be contaminated by low concentrations of hazardous waste or pollution, and has the potential to be reused once it is cleaned up.

The city of Plymouth will act as the lead in the grant application process.
Bruce Carter Associates prepares the grant application for free in order to be part of the bid process for the clean up of any Brownfield receiving federal money.

The Commissioners will consider a resolution to support the grant application at their next meeting on Nov. 4.
