MARYSVILLE – At the City Council meeting Monday:

•The city OK’d almost $4.25 million for improved screening at its wastewater treatment plant.

•The city OK’d spending a little more than $993,300 for design of a downtown stormwater treatment facility in a manner similar to what’s already in place on Third Street and First Street.

•Because of impacts to wetlands caused by the First Street Bypass, the city will pay $224,700 for mitigation credits in accordance with an environmental permit received from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. •Alaina Perry was sworn in as an entry-level police officer. She graduated from Central Washington University with a degree in law and justice. She then worked for a few years for the Department of Corrections. At the police academy she was named class vice president.

•The city approved a permit to allow construction of the State Avenue widening project at the Quil Ceda Bridge area from 100th to 104th.

•The city approved $33,495 for crosswalk improvements.

•The council passed a law regarding wireless communication facilities. However, the council said it would be open to amendments because of concerns brought forward by an industry spokesman.

During the comment period:

•Planning director Dave Koenig said house building will be busy this summer as there are 16 subdivisions and 637 lots in the works. He also said in the first quarter there have been 127 new-business licenses.

•Parks director Jim Ballew said March was the busiest one ever at the city’s Cedarcrest Golf Course. In youth soccer, 700 kids and 140 volunteer coaches are signed up – “the biggest season in a long time.” •City Councilman Stephen Muller said he recalls not long ago when Marysville was called an “unhealthy” community. But ever since it started participating in Healthy Communities Day and other activities the “walkability” in town has improved. He was referring to the number of trails, especially the one east of the Qwuloolt Estuary that is seeing quite a bit of activity.
