Marysville Farmers Market revving up for second season

Marysville Farmers Market is returning again rain or shine for another season down by the riverfront across from the water filtration plant in Marysville City Park. Beginning Friday, May 5 from 10 a.m.--4 p.m., a variety of vendors will feature everything from flowers, produce, honey, baked goods and arts and crafts.

Vendors are needed for the market and may contact Matt Koss at (810) 364-6800 or KofC9526@ for more information or to participate.

The Marysville Farmers Market is coordinated by the Knights of Columbus Council #9526 and the Marysville Recreation Department. It will run through Friday, October 27.

After relocating to the riverfront last season, the farmers market proved to be quite the success. Join us again this year to support our local farmers and artisans. Buy local, buy fresh.

News from the Clerk's Office

New precinct created In an effort to make the voting process more efficient and easier for residents, the Clerk's Office has redrawn voting precinct boundaries to create Precinct 4.

According to City Clerk/Finance Director Renae Warnke, the new precinct was made from portions of Precincts 2 and 3 which were both near their voter capacities. The State of Michigan allows 2,999 registered voters per precinct. "Because this is a slow election year, we decided to make these changes," said Warnke.

Important

Voting Info

Precinct 4 boundaries are as follows: Starting at Bunce and Busha--Bunce West to Delaware-- Delaware North to Gratiot--Gratiot West to Michigan-- Michigan North to 4th--4th West to Minnesota-- Minnesota North to Ravenswood--Ravenswood East to Gratiot--Gratiot South to junction with Busha--Busha South to River Rd.--River Rd. East to Riverview.

The new voting precinct location will be Marysville Assembly of God Church, 1245 6th Street.

Registered voters living in the new precinct will receive updated voter identification cards in the near future.

The City's Election Commission approved Precinct 4 on March 27.

City to receive new voting equipment The State of Michigan is providing the City with new voting tabulators for use during the November 2017 election. The improved technology will enable results to be directly transmitted to the County Clerk's Office during an election.

For more information regarding the above two topics, please call our Clerk's Office at (810) 455-1318.

Columbarium bid approved

On February 27, 2017 Marysville City Council approved a bid in the amount of $26,500 to construct a new columbarium wall in Riverlawn Cemetery.

Jones Monument Company of Port Huron, Michigan was awarded the project. The wall will be a prefabricated round or octagonal `stand alone' type with at least 60 niches and made of mahogany and sierra white granite to match the existing walls.

Installation will begin later this season. Our existing columbarium space has been sold out since November 2016. Niches for the new wall will be available for purchase at a later date.

K9 officer receives body armor

Marysville Police Department's K9 Officer Heiko has received a bullet and stab protective vest thanks to a charitable donation from nonprofit organization Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. Officer Heiko's vest is sponsored by Sharon Peters of Grosse Pointe Shores and embroidered with the sentiment `In memory of Det. Lt. Richard J. Scott'.

Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. is a 501( c ) 3 charity located in East Taunton, Massachusetts. Their mission is to provide bullet and stab protective vests and other assistance to dogs of law enforcement and related agencies throughout the United States. The non-profit was established in 2009 to assist the agencies with this potentially lifesaving body armor for their four-legged officers. Since its inception, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. has provided more than 2300 protective vests in 50 states through private and corporate donations at a cost of $1.9 million dollars. All vests are custom made in the USA by Armor Express in Central Lake, Michigan.

The program is open to dogs actively employed in the U.S. with law enforcement or related agencies who are certified and at least 20 months of age. New K9 graduates as well as K9s with expired vests are eligible to participate.

The donation to provide one protective vest for a law enforcement K9 is $1,050. Each vest has a value between $1,795--$2234 and a five-year warranty and an average weight of 4--5 pounds. There are an estimated 30,000 law enforcement K9s throughout the U.S. For more information please visit their website at .

Roads to be top priority this summer

The delayed road/water main replacement project for Connecticut, Drawbridge, 18th Street and North St. James will begin this spring. Residents of South Connecticut and Drawbridge Lane can look forward to construction in their neighborhood beginning Monday, April 17. Contractor Boddy Construction will remove the curbs and road so water mains may be replaced on these two streets. The roads will be repaved shortly thereafter. North St. James will be repaved and receive new water mains; 18th Street between Connecticut and New Jersey will receive water main replacement only later in the season.

Additionally Georgia between 16th and 18th Streets will be milled and repaved this season.

Huron Blvd. between Michigan and Busha will be replaced later this summer. The City of Marysville received a $375,000 grant from the State of Michigan Department of Transportation to repave Huron from Busha Hwy. to Gratiot Blvd. This will be accomplished in several phases through 2018.

Building Department news

Spring is upon us and home improvement projects will be on the upswing. Here are a few answers to some commonly asked questions that the Building Department receives.

Do I need a permit? Building permits are required for all structures and any roofing work over 200 square feet with additional permits required for all other electrical, mechanical and plumbing work.

Zoning permits are required for all sheds under 200 square feet as well as for fences and pools on residential property.

Who applies for the permit? Building, electrical, mechanical and plumbing permits can be applied for by a property owner who occupies the home where the work is being done. Permits for work on rentals must be applied for by a licensed contractor.

Contractors may want a homeowner to apply for a permit for their proposed work. However to protect your legal interest and safety, we recommend that only licensed and insured contractors apply for permits.
