Water and Sewer rates will be going up on the February billing for the city of Marysville as part of the phase to increase the rate to cover the maintenance required for the water and sewer system . The annual rate increase will mean that the minimum bill of $40.88 for use of 2,500 gallons or less will go up to $43.
Updates to the water plant, a new water tower on the east side of town, and improvements of the old water tower have been seen over the last several years. Operating and maintenance costs have gone up with rising fuel and
materials cost. Plus they continue to do work on the water tower near 17th St, with the painting of both the interior and exterior of the water tower planned for this summer.
