Marshall County Commissioners to Discuss Three Ordinances

The second reading of three ordinances will dominate this morning’s Marshall County Commissioners meeting.

The commissioners previously discussed the ordinances to establish a fee schedule and to amend the Marshall County zoning ordinance and zoning map. LaPaz residents expressed opposition to the zoning map saying that they don’t want the agriculture area zone to be overcome by commercial development. They’re more concerned about the preservation of existing businesses downtown. With the new U.S. 31, not as much traffic passes through town and residents are afraid those establishments may become extinct.

The commissioners will hear more public commentary during today’s meeting.

The highway department will also have a reports as will EMA Director Clyde Avery and County Attorney Jim Clevenger.

The meeting will begin today at 9:30 a.m. ET in the second floor meeting room in the Marshall County Building in Plymouth.
