The Simmon’s Management Corporation has informed the City of Marysville that it is no longer working to save and renovate Simmon’s Auditorium. The organization informed the City Council that they are now looking at the Union Pacific Railroad Station that was vacated by the railroad when the rail project was completed. The group requested the cities help in negotiations with the Union Pacific Railroad. After some discussion the Council asked City Attorney John McNish to meet with lawyers from SMC and Union Pacific. One concern to be addressed was the possible legal liability the city may incur if they help with the negotiations.
The Council also agreed to wait on any further action regarding Simmon’s Auditorium until March.
