The Marysville City Council met Monday, and tackled a light agenda. Dennis Mason requested city assistance paying electric service for lighting at the Veterans Memorial. He was accompanied by members of the American Legion, which had coordinated construction of the monument, and seen to its maintenance the past ten years. He indicated that the group was pursuing longer term strategies, and approval was given for city support not to exceed $45 per month, as requested for a six-month trial period. Several council members suggested looking into solar lighting options.

The City Administrator was encouraged by improving financial conditions, with the general fund balance back within $13,000 of the balance a year ago. Water fund revenues and balance were up markedly, at some $220,000 over a year ago. The sewer fund was also up.

Brief discussion regarding a list of nuisance properties brought comment from several council members, who appear dissatisfied with consistency in efforts to enforce clean-up of cluttered, or dilapidated properties in the city. Letters had been sent to a number of residents this spring, but follow up appeared lacking.

Approval was given for the mayor’s appointment of Joy Kramer to the Convention and Tourism Board, replacing the expiring position of Kenny Sells, who has served a number of years on the committee.
