Council extends PIC senior center agreement for three more years

PLYMOUTH – The city renewed its commitment to the Plymouth Intergenerational Coalition to continue operating the Plymouth Adult Community Center at Generations.

The City Council Tuesday approved a three-year extension of the agreement between the city and PIC, with a one percent annual increase in the payment.

“The existing funding agreement with PIC ended at the end of April,” City Administrator Brian Yerges told the council. “In order for the clerk/treasurer to issue the next quarterly payment you need to approve this agreement.”

The city will pay PIC $123,600 over the next year in four quarterly payments, then $124,800 for 2019-20 and $126,000 for 2020-2l.

The city contracted with PIC to operate the PACC when the Generations center opened, taking over the previous Senior Center which had been funded and operated by the city.

Yerges noted that the last agreement had been for two years and recommended a three-year extension.

“In the past, we have tried to provide Generations with at least a multi-year commitment versus a one-year commitment,” Yerges wrote in a memo to the council. “I would assume the council would want to continue that practice.”

“The three-year agreement allows for us to budget and plan accordingly with confidence,” Generations Executive Director Vicky Schneider – who was unable to attend the council meeting due to a prior commitment – wrote Yerges in an email. She noted that the city funding represents one-sixth of the PACC’s total revenue, “and is essential for us to be able to operate and maintain our building and offer quality programs for older adults.”

The council approved an annexation request for a parcel on County PP on the city’s south side.

The .86 acre triangular-shaped parcel is located just to the west of the railroad tracks on the north side of County PP, across from the wastewater treatment plant.

They also approved rezoning the property to single-family residential, with variances for not meeting setbacks and other requirements as an existing building.

Mayor Donald Pohlman announced that the council will visit Carl Loebe Field at 7 p.m. prior to their next meeting June 12.

Director of Public Works Cathy Austin explained that there is water coming down through the grandstand at the baseball field and into the restrooms underneath them.

“That’s causing a mold issue in the restrooms,” Austin told the council. Currently, portable toilets are being used at the park.

She said the council should view the problem before determining what can be done to correct it and if it needs to be included in the city’s budget next year.
