Marysville Rolls Out Proposed 2023 Budget

MARYSVILLE – The Marysville City Council and the public got its first official look at the proposed 2023 budget for the City of Marysville during its regular meeting Monday, following a short presentation of the budget to the public prior to the 7 p.m. meeting.

The Marysville City Council now has three weeks to peruse the budget, make suggested changes and continue to work with the Finance Committee and the administration in fine-tuning the budget prior to its second reading and public hearing at the next scheduled City Council meeting November 14.

The 2023 budget is broken down into four different ordinances, one each for capital funds, operating funds, appropriations and compensation of city employees.

In other matters, the council tabled two ordinances that were scheduled for a third reading Monday, the first which would approve the annexation of 263 acres of land into the west side of the city, south of the U.S. Route 33/U.S. Route 36/State Route 4/State Route 245/Northwest Parkway interchange, and the second which would rezone 197 acres of that same property from its current zoning designation of U-1 (Township Zoning) to Planned Unit Development (PUD). The votes to table both ordinances passed by a 4-3 vote, with council members Henk Berbee, Donald Boerger and Deborah Groat all voting against the tabling of the ordinances. The third reading for both have been scheduled for the regular session that is to be conducted November 14.

Two resolutions were heard on the first reading Monday and council was asked to pass both without a second or third hearing. The first is an anti-deplacement and relocation assistance plan as required for the city to continue to participate in the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, while the second will permit the Ohio Department of Transportation to inspect the city’s bridges at no cost to the city. There were no public comments on either matter, the council agreed to waive the second and third readings and both passed with a 7-0 vote.

Heard on the second reading was an ordinance that uses the Community Reinvestment Area (CRA) to allow the city to enter into tax revenue sharing agreement with the Marysville Exempted Village School District as well as establishing a donation agreement between the City of Marysville, Innovation 2, LP, the MEVSD, the Ohio Hi-Point Career Centers and the Community Improvement Corporation of Union County. Also heard on the second reading was an ordinance calling for a deadline for wastewater billing credit. No comments were made about either of the ordinances by either the public or the council and both will be up for third reading and a vote at the next scheduled meeting.

The Marysville City Council is scheduled to meet again in regular session Monday, November 14 at 7 p.m.
