Marshall County Commissioners Move Forward with Property Transfer


The Marshall County Commissioners are moving forward with deeding property to the city of Plymouth.

There are three lots that were on the county’s tax sales for years that failed to sell. Mayor Mark Senter approached Treasurer Deb Vandemark about the possibility of the county deeding those parcels to the city for the city’s use and she brought it to the attention of the commissioners earlier this month.

Since that first conversation, County Attorney Jim Clevenger spoke to Mayor Senter and he did confirm that the city is interested in the three properties. Two of those properties are on E. LaPorte Street down by the river near the new park and the other is on South Plum Street.

Clevenger said he and City Attorney Sean Surrisi will draft a resolution for both government entities to review, approve and sign. The paperwork is expected to be presented to the commissioners during their meeting on July 7 for their approval and signatures.
