A bit of extra consideration has led the Marshall County Commissioners to approve an intergovernmental agreement with the City of Plymouth.
The contract was tabled at the Commissioner’s previous meeting. Under the agreement, Plymouth financially compensates the County for the use of their Planning and Zoning services.
A bit more time was taken to consider the agreement after Commissioner Deb Griewank said she was concerned about the workload on their Plan Director.
The Commissioners agreed earlier this month that it was necessary to have discussions with their Plan Director about his workload and continuing the service for the City of Plymouth.
Griewank says that during her history on the Plan Board and BZA Board, she believes it is not appropriate to the position.
“I guess this is just why I’m against approving this,” says Griewank. “I feel like he’s overworked the way it is, and this is just going to add to his workload.”
The City of Plymouth will now pay Marshall County $7,500 for the use of the service.
The Commissioners approved the agreement on a 2-1 vote with Griewank voting against the measure.
