Confusion complicates legality of off-road type vehicles in Culver

August 3, 2011

If you'd be hard-pressed to tell the difference between an ATV, RTV, UTV, and MTV -- and whether any of them constitute a golf cart, or are allowed on Culver's streets under state statute -- you're in good company.
Culver's town council last week sought to untangle the meanings behind those acronyms (hint: All Terrain Vehicle, Rough Terrain Vehicle, Utility Terrain Vehicle, and Marginal Terrain Vehicle are at least some of the options) and their legality.

Airport sign denied by Plymouth BZA

August 3, 2011

PLYMOUTH — It’s back to the drawing board for the Plymouth Aviation Board if it wants BZA (Board of Zoning Appeals) approval for signs at the airport.
Airport Manager Dave Lattimer and Aviation Board President Tom Flynn appeared before the BZA Tuesday night seeking a variance from the development standard to increase the sign area from 32 square feet to 119 square feet for a monument sign. The sign — designed by Vanadco Signs of Argos — would measure 17 feet high.
The BZA Board considered the matter and then voted unanimously to deny the application.

Back-to-school shopping: Local moms share their tips for stocking up on supplies

August 2, 2011

PLYMOUTH — ‘Tis the season for pens, notebooks, and glue—and not a small amount of stress for parents who need to provide new school supplies for their children.
“I’m not a good planner—I usually buy what I can the last couple of weeks before school starts, even if it breaks the budget,” said Hesper Manns, Knox mom of Layne, 14, and Brenna, 10.
Manns is not alone—the list of needed supplies, especially for parents of multiple children, can seem overwhelming. To combat budget worries, Plymouth mom Amy Schuler plans on buying school supplies gradually instead of all at once.

Pioneer Drive could start carrying traffic in September

August 2, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Even a 15-day strike hasn't slowed the project on Pioneer Drive.
Reporting to the Marshall County Commissioners DLZ project engineer Ron Wireman said that even dealing with a strike that shut down work for more than two weeks likely won't push the completion date for the road back any further than the second week of September. The contractors on the project will be allowed a 15-day extension for the days lost to the work stoppage which sets the official required completion date back to Oct. 17.
