Marysville approves garbage contract, fireworks ordinance

Officials in the City of Marysville have renewed a contract with their current trash hauler through 2024. During last night’s meeting of the Marysville City Council, officials approved the agreement with Emterra Environmental which will take effect July 1st. According to City Manager Randy Fernandez, rates will be frozen for the first two years of the contract and then increase 3.25% in year three,  3.5% years four and five. Also last night, Marysville City Council approved anew ordinance which would amend the city code to add the discharge of consumer grade fireworks outside the realm of state defined holidays as disorderly conduct. In Michigan, fireworks can be shot off the day before, the day of, and the day after a federal holiday.
