Marysville City Council met Monday. A motion to reduce the time City Attorney John McNish would attend council meetings proposed by Vicky Gross was defeated with the mayor breaking a 3-3 tie vote. A subsequent motion to require McNish attend all meetings then passed on a 4-2 vote, with Gross and Carla Grund voting no, citing unnecessary expense. Council took no action on a request from Dennis Mason to use Hedstrom Hall for recycling collection. He was encouraged to first discuss the issue with the county, which operates the program. Unanimous consent was given C.E.S. Group to move ahead developing a plan for drainage issues east of Marysville east of 11th Road. Unanimous approval was given to move forward with a $1.2 million dollar project with the Kansas Department of Transportation that would include a stoplight at 20th Street, and lowering the highway grade east.
