The Marysville City Council met Monday. Consensus was to maintain admission prices at the city pool, after a recommendation that single admissions be raised from $4 to $5, thereby making change easier. Pool pass prices will also remain the same.

Convention and Tourism Committee members proposed construction of a dog park, offering several potential locations. They cited an online survey that showed over 90% of 140 respondents were in favor of adding such a facility. Nearly 85% of those responding indicated that they were dog owners. Among three sites in south Marysville suggested, a location at 8th and Jackson Streets was favored by council, and was a top choice of the committee, who will now be allowed to begin fundraising efforts. The city will share in expenses and assume maintenance. A final cost estimate has not been established. An earlier effort by a local boy scout to develop a dog park was not completed after private contributions did not reach estimated costs involved.

The recently installed disc golf course in Marysville City Park again drew fire from council member Terry Hughes, who expressed concern that a deed with the Patterson Trust for use of property adjacent to the park had not been finalized, and a contract with the school district for use of the park for athletic practice had not been revised. A back and forth over who owns, and is responsible for the baskets now that they are installed was not settled, and a proposed disc golf resolution that the City Attorney had drafted was dropped, in favor of negotiating an agreement with Marysville Sport and Rec, who coordinated the project, with Kyle Goracke who spearheaded the volunteer contribution for all expenses, and completed this installation work.

Suggestions that would reduce operating hours for the Koester House Museum found no support, as printed marketing materials have been distributed. An attendance survey showed just 4 visitors last April, and only 6 in October. Mayor Carla Grund suggested limiting full time operation from May – September, with weekend hours in April and October.

Annual city wide clean up week begins Monday, April 15th. City crews will canvas the community and pick up yard waste and branches that are in containers set curb side the morning of pick up. Monday route will be north of U.S. Highway 36 and east of 10th Street, Tuesday route will be north of U.S. Highway 36 and west of 10th Street. Wednesday pickup will be south of U.S. Highway 36 and east of U.S. Highway 77, and Thursday south of U.S. Highway 36 and west of U.S. Highway 77. City brush dump site hours will be extended next week, open 9-5:30 Monday through Friday, in addition to routine Saturday/Sunday hours.
