The Marysville City Council will hold public hearings on the city's proposed biennial budget for 2019 and 2020 on Tuesday, Nov. 13, and Monday, Nov. 26, both at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 1049 State Ave. Marysville residents are encouraged to attend and share their priorities for city projects and services.
Mayor Jon Nehring's proposed $352 million two-year budget continues to deliver on long-term investments the city launched in recent years. These include major infrastructure projects like building the First Street Bypass in anticipation of the new I-5/SR 529 freeway interchange and widening State Avenue north of 100th Street NE, extending the Ebey Waterfront Trail and connecting Bayview Trail to the Centennial Trail. It also proposes adding two new police officers in each 2019 and 2020.
"Thank you to the City Council for its continued commitment to financial stewardship and pursuing our common goals of enhancing opportunities for all Marysville residents and businesses," Mayor Nehring said. "I look forward to discussing these proposals and our shared priorities."
The 2019-2020 preliminary city budget is available online at https://www.marysvillewa.gov/124/City-Budget. The Marysville City Council will adopt the final budget by the end of the year.
