Marysville City Council votes to help try and save Depot

The Marysville City Council has decided to step in to try and save the Union Pacific Railroad Depot from being torn down.  Several folks were in attendance to urge the City to help preserve the depot, which was built in 1929.  Mayor Bill Phillipi told the council it would cost about $75,000 a year to maintain it.  Linda Swim, President of Landmark Enterprises said they would be willing to help another group in an effort to save the building.  She also said plans of putting a theater next to the building have been scrapped.
