The Marshall County Commissioners will receive a report on a proposed buggy ordinance at their meeting, this morning.
Members of the board have expressed an interest in registering buggies used by local Amish populations to navigate local roadways. According to County officials, the equipment causes damage to Marshall County’s roads.
Using similar ordinances from neighboring counties, Marshall County has been working to develop their own. One of the commissioners has brought up the possibility of having a bank near the locations of the Amish collect the fees and register the buggies.
According to the agenda, Marshall County Attorney Jim Clevenger will provide an update on the ordinance.
The Sheriff’s Department will also be looking to request a vehicle purchase.
Today’s meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. EST at the Marshall County Building.
