The Marysville City Council met Monday. Citywide clean is this week, and yard waste and tree limbs may be left curbside for city pickup. Leaves and grass clippings should be boxed or bagged, and limbs trimmed to manageable size.

Overlay work continues on U.S. Highway 36, and is expected to be complete by next week. Sustained temperatures of at least 40 degrees are necessary for the asphalt work. A motion passed to proceed with engineering services for a state highway grant application in 2018 for work the following year to replace the 10th and Center Street intersection, and the portion of U.S. Highway 77 extending south. Consensus was to also apply for a transportation alternative grant for brick street replacement, with Broadway from 5th to 6th a first priority.

Approval was given to move forward with advertising and accepting sealed bids for a property at 7th and Walnut. Councilman Frye urged the right to refuse any or all offers based on adjacent city improvements, including the walking trail and city park adjoining the property just to the east. The motion passed unanimously.

City Administrator Austin St. John shared a map identifying downtown trees and locations where trees had been. Business and property owners were surveyed as to their preference, and a majority were in favor or indifferent to a proposal that the city plant and maintain trees at most locations. A more detailed proposal will be forthcoming. Existing healthy trees will be preserved, with a goal of locating 3 – 4 trees within each block from 7th to 11th Streets on Broadway.

A long-range planning workshop is planned for December 4th, with new council members to be invited. A motion to allow city employees an extra day off for Christmas on December 26th was approved on a 5-2 vote, with Gross and Schroller voting no. The last council meeting in December will be the following Wednesday, December 7th.
