City's tax, utility offices to be moved


The city of Marysville is moving its income tax and utility department offices -- but they are not going far.

Both are in City Hall, 125 E. Sixth St., with entrances from the Plum Street side of the building. They are moving to the former location of the Marysville Municipal Court office, also in City Hall.

Marysville Public Information Officer Anna Krutowskis said the move is being made to centralize everyone on one side of the building.

"It will also be nice for residents to have one central location to go to," she said.

The Marysville Income Tax Department will move to its new location Wednesday, May 8. The Utility Department will relocate Wednesday, May 15.

To get to the offices, residents must enter one of the two main entrances on the East Sixth Street side of the building.

Effective Wednesday, May 15, the entrance on the Plum Street side of City Hall will be permanently closed.

Phone numbers for both departments will not change.

This move is temporary. All city offices will move to the new $5.7-million Municipal Services Complex, 209 S. Main St., in a few months. Construction of the building at the corner of East Sixth and South Main streets is on track and scheduled to be completed in November with the city moving in during December.

Once the move is complete, the old City Hall building will be demolished to make way for more parking and a new open-air pavilion.

Marysville has made a number of adjustments involving its administrative offices, the police and fire departments and municipal court.

The fire department moved to the new Decker Fire Station on County Home Road last fall. The court and police department moved to the new Police and Court facility last month.

Once the Municipal Services Complex is finished, some fire personnel will move back to the 209 S. Main St. building, which means Marysville will have two fire stations.
