The Marysville City Council met Monday. After lengthy consideration, the high bid of Chris and Merritt Butler for three lots at 7th and Walnut, just east of the city swimming pool parking lot, was accepted. He is proposing to maintain the property as a green space, adding several trees and keeping the R3 zoning designation. Butler agreed to any additional survey costs involved with a further proposal that the city vacate the alley on the property, in exchange for an equal easement right.

His bid of $6,200 was accepted on a unanimous vote, after consideration of a $5,000 bid from Nick Stoll, who had proposed developing a three-unit rental property at the site. He cited previous development experience with infill lots, and noted the additional economic benefits, including taxes, and utilities. This prompted discussion as to identifying infill lots or properties that may be better utilized if developed following demolition of older or outdated structures.

A bid of $177,000 for sewer line replacement was approved, as well as the low bid of $26,000 for a new HVAC system at Marysville City Hall. The City Administrator asked about the possibility of the city seeking a 501 C3 IRS designation, allowing for donations toward parks or other city functions through individual contributions.

The mayor suggested reviewing the city bid policy, with an intent to have a staff and elected official present for bid openings. She also suggested review of the city water and sewer rate structure, indicating concern with discounts given for volume and commercial enterprises.

Discussion of nuisance violations and stepping up enforcement will be further carried forward at a workshop this Monday evening.
