Marysville City Council Meeting Notes – 2/12/18

Marysville city council met Monday. A presentation was heard on a new homeownership incentive program coordinated through the North Central Regional Planning Commission, in cooperation with local banks that will assist qualified homeowners with a reduced down payment. A kickoff meeting to announce details is planned next week, and KNDY will discuss details with representatives on our public affairs program this weekend. Tune Saturday morning at 7:10 am on AM 1570/FM 94.1 KNDY.

A wildlife rescue specialist was granted permission to capture a black orphan squirrel for use in education programs. An update was provided that Planning and Zoning had approved a rebuild of the Sonic Drive In, which will be demolished and reconstructed on the current site, with work to begin soon. A proposed ag complex addition to the south of the Marysville Jr. High School has also been approved, if USD 364 chooses to move forward.

The Finance Committee is proposing raising court fees from $65 to $85. Approval was given to move forward developing an ordinance for consideration that would raise the mayor and council pay. The mayor would receive an increase from $2,400 to $3,200 annually, and council members would receive an increase from $1,400 to $2,000 annually. The motion to present an ordinance for consideration passed 4-2, with Todd Frye and Jason Barnes voting no.
