Marshall County Commissioners to Meet Today


The Marshall County Commissioners will meet today at 8:30 a.m. ET.

Emergency Management Agency Director Clyde Avery will update the commissioners on the emergency plan. During the last commissioners meeting, Avery explained that the emergency plan was changed after events during the winter season. Department heads said working with the EMA Director by way of virtual means would work better, but Avery believes that may not be the best solution – especially if electricity and internet services are not available.

He added that extra hands in the emergency operations center would help him speed up efforts in relaying emergency information to those entities that need it the most.  The amended plan spells out what the roles and responsibilities of each department would be in the case of an emergency including communication, coordination and cooperation.

The commissioners will take a better look at that in today’s meeting.

The three-member board will also get an update on the 7th Road project and the Metronet project from Project Manager Bart Trester from USI, Jackie Wright from Older Adult Services will have a grant application request, Linda Rippy from the Marshall County Museum will have a quarterly report and a highway report will be given.

The Marshall County Commissioners meet in the second floor meeting room in the Marshall County Building in Plymouth.
