Marysville City Council met Monday. The grant process for the KDOT Alternative Transportation Program was discussed, with the possibility of applying for a trail connection from Center Street north to Carolina Street. Consensus was to wait until a final decision on efforts by a local group to acquire and renovate the former Union Pacific Depot is determined. Negotiations with the railroad continue. Concerns were expressed with regard to outstanding city debt, and money already spent on the Seventh Street corridor improvements. A final walk through of the airport lighting project is planned November 5th. A letter from Karen Hughes was read. She expressed concerns with material stored outside the Landoll parts distribution facility at 1500 Center. With Landoll’s recent request for property tax relief for a new 70,000 square foot distribution center to be constructed at the North Street complex, she was seeking assurance that Landoll would consolidate the material and clean the site, which she declared is unsightly. The city is pursuing a possible tax sale to recover some $8,375 in taxes going back to 2010, as well as mowing fees for a property at 1100 North Eighth Street. There are reportedly three liens on the property. A request from Carla Grund to consider absentee voting by council members absent from meetings was denied.
