The city of Marysville will hold two public meetings to discuss the one percent sales tax increase that will appear on the November ballot. The first meeting will be September 28th. The second meeting date has not been set. If approved by voters the sales tax will be used to fund a new swimming park, a fire station, and tennis courts. The tax would remain in effect indefinitely and continue to be used for city expenses.
