Argos Town Council members unanimously agreed to allow the Marshall County Economic Development Corporation to subdivide approximately 17 acres of property at their meeting Wednesday night.
Town Attorney Derek Jones explained that the MCEDC initially intended to utilize 15 acres for the manufacturing center project at the Dewey Street property so they came before the council to request the additional acreage.
Argos Clerk-Treasurer Lisa Mullaney asked the Marshall County Commissioners to consider an intergovernmental agreement between the county, Town of Argos and Building Commissioner Chuck DeWitt for building and planning services.
The Town of Argos is looking toward economic growth. Mullaney said town officials need help with planning and Board of Zoning Appeals assistance to move forward. Mullaney commented that the members of these boards are volunteers and not qualified professionals so guidance from DeWitt would be appreciated.
The Marshall County Commissioners will have several discussion items before them when they meet this morning.
Argos Clerk-Treasurer Lisa Mullaney will discuss an intergovernmental agreement for planning services. Clerk Deb Vandemark, acting on behalf of the Marshall County Election Board, will present a contract with Microvote and Brian Kubicki will have an annual agreement with Gibson Insurance for approval. Treasurer Angie Birchmeier will have a tax billing contract proposal from Worrell Corp. and Planning Director Ralph Booker will present a right-of-way dedication for approval for Carl Stockberger.
