The Marysville City Council voted Monday night not to purchase the U.P. Depot and the property around it. A motion was made to purchase the land around it for just over $97,000 and it was voted down 5-3. The U.P. Depot was scheduled for demolition earlier this month, but they held off pending the outcome of the City Council decision. Now the ball is in Union Pacific’s court as to what will happen and when. In other city council news, the council voted to replace the beacon at the Marysville Airport, if the new beacon points up, as they would be going from a 13,000 watt bulb to a 40,000 watt bulb, which is in the range of Des Moines and Kansas City’s airports for brightness, and wouldn’t want to blind the neighbors. If the new beacon does not point upward, it will not be purchased. Charlie Friedrichs got approval for the housing project on South 11th Road, south of the Marysville Senior Living homes and Pam Dankenbring brought three different logos as part of the new branding of Marysville. The public will vote on which one is their favorite with ballots available at all Marysville banks and the plan is to have the new logo painted on the water tower this summer when it’s being painted.
