Marysville City Council Meeting Highlights – 7/24/17

The Marysville City Council met Monday, and approved a budget hearing for the August 14th meeting, at 7 p.m. No change in mill levy is proposed, it will remain 67.415 mills. The city is expected to benefit from increased property valuations.

City Administrator Austin St. John presented three bids for replacing the HVAC system at the Arts Center. Replacement was budgeted for next year, but repairs are necessary, and he recommended moving the funding forward. One of the bids included a high efficiency option, and council consensus was to allow the other bidders an option to add a high efficiency system. All bids were rejected, and will be rebid accordingly.

Approval was given to a recommendation for replacement of the stone steps at the front of the Koester House, which is leased to Las Cabanas Mexican restaurant. The bid was $55,600, and work is expected to begin late this summer with the same contractor completing chimney repairs at the Marshall County Historic Courthouse.

Recent actions of the City Planning and Zoning Committee included approval of plans to expand the Habitat for Humanity Thrift Shop with a 24 by 50-foot addition to the east side, and approval for a site plan presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts for a new store to be located on 6.5 acres on U.S. Highway 36 just east of Pizza Hut.
