City commission OK’s design phase for road repairs

Following approval of a 10-year bond by voters last month, members of the Plymouth City Commission authorized the design phase for the 2020 Street Improvement Project.
The commissioners approved the measure at a regular meeting last month.

The $12,280,000 bond will fund the acquiring and constructing of street improvements throughout the city and will cost property owners an increase of 1.2721 mills or $1.27 per $1,000 of taxable property value.
The proposed plan for 2020 includes work on Dewey between Ross and Byron, Ann between Farmer and Junction, Farmer between the railroad tracks and Blunk, Main Street between Church and Wing, Junction between Blunk and Karmada, crosswalk improvements at Main and Hartsough, and various crack sealing projects around the city.
The authorization of the design phase is the first of several steps to move toward final authorization of the project, officials said.
A total of 1,028 voters voted in favor of the project while 723 voted no on the question.
