Marshall County Commissioners to Meet Today


The Marshall County Commissioners will meet in regular session today where Bart Trester from USI will have an update on the 7th Road project and the Metronet project.

The Metronet project started a few weeks ago where conduit is being installed from Ireland Road in South Bend to Marshall County. That conduit will house broadband cables for high speed internet for businesses to increase productivity. The project is expected to be complete this year.

County Attorney Jim Clevenger will have an update and a postage machine contract will be discussed by the commission members.

No word has been given on when the announcement of a new highway superintendent will be coming. The commissioners interviewed candidates last week and will make a decision soon. Neal Haeck, Former Marshall County Highway Superintendent, retired at the beginning of May and highway employees Jerry Ambrose and Jason Peters have been filling in the interim position.

The Marshall County Commissioners will meet this morning at 8:30 a.m. ET in the second floor meeting room in the Marshall County Building in Plymouth.
