Plans for a new fire station were presented at the Marysville City Council meeting Monday night. If approved by the voters the new station would be built on south 11th road at the former KNDY building the city recently purchased. The new station will have an eight bay garage for fire trucks, the fire prevention trailer, and the dive team boat and trailer. In addition to the fire apparatus the building will house multiple storage areas and equipment rooms. A meeting and training room that will hold approximately 45 persons will be available for public use for a small fee. The entire station, including the surrounding driveways, parking and landscaping is estimated to cost 1,050,230 dollars. Copies of the plans for the new fire station are available to the public at the Marysville City Building. If the station is approved by the voters, Debbie Price, City Clerk, said three fire trucks would be kept at the Marysville City Shop located at 301 Broadway.
In other business the council approved a new no parking ordinance that will affect several new areas of Marysville. Included in the new areas affected are 20th Street from North Street to Airport Road and Airport road on both sides of the street.
A motion to give all city employees a 25 cent per hour raise led to a tied vote. Mayor Bernie Krug cast a tie breaking vote in favor of the raise. The raise will take effect the next pay period and will be given to all city employees with the exception of seasonal help.
