MARYSVILLE — Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring addressed citizen concerns ranging from public safety and budgets to traffic and neighborhood upkeep at his most recent coffee klatch at the Marysville YMCA Youth Development Center on Wednesday, Nov. 7. “Our long-term goal of paying down the city’s debt continues to make progress,” Nehring said. “We’re paying off the library, one of the golf loans and the Boys & Girls Club building this year. It’s nice to finally have some of these expenses paid off.” A trio of Marysville residents inquired what could be done to combat pet waste. Dawn Everett is a frequent walker around town who picks up her own dog’s waste, but feels uncomfortable even taking her dog out when she sees that so many other pet owners have failed to do the same.

As it’s gotten colder, they’re even more in need of our services. We have a lot of homeless people who don’t have cooking facilities or even can openers, so we look for food with pull-top cans. Just a couple of jars of peanut butter and jelly can sustain them for a few days, since we have so much bread that our leftovers are recycled by local farms. Nothing goes to waste.” Seeds of Grace’s clothing bank sees a steady demand for coats, pants and especially men’s underwear
