The Marysville City Council met Monday (11/28/11). The Koester House Museum advisory committee presented a priority list of repairs and maintenance issues for the Koester House Museum. The group has established a goal of raising $25,000 to fund the projects, and will keep the council apprised of progress.
The council discussed completing the Elm Street and Broadway intersections on Seventh Street. Apparently the project to upgrade the Seventh Street corridor did not include these options. Rick Shain suggested gravel as a temporary cover, with the city to put down asphalt this spring. Several councilmen expressed concern that such a plan would not match the adjacent brick streets, and had understood that completing the intersections was part of the master plan. Costs of various options are to be explored, with no decision made Monday.
The highest single month in revenue ever from the city sales tax was reported from September. Officials noted a significant jump in the use tax, which includes sales of cars, trucks, and recreational vehicles sold in Marysville.
