MARYSVILLE – Four projects were awarded a total of almost $21,000 by the City Council Monday night.

The council OK’d the recommendations of the Community Beautification Program Grant Review Committee.

•Copper Creek Homeowners Association $5,000. Neighborhood entrance monuments, irrigation and landscaping along lower portion of upper division along Ingraham Boulevard.

•102nd Place NE $5,000. Replacement of failing sections of wooden fencing around neighborhood stormwater ponds along entrance to neighborhood.

•Harborview Homeowners Association $7,500. Replacement of deteriorated neighborhood fencing along Sunnyside Boulevard and 52nd Avenue, bark installed and neighborhood sign refurbished.

•Apple Vista $3,460. Installation of neighborhood monument sign on empty brick monument at entrance to neighborhood and improved landscaping beneath sign. Parks director Jim Ballew said those were the only projects that met the criteria. He suggested changing the criteria some to allow for more winners, and possibly offer it during fall and winter.

He said two other projects were from businesses. Another project was for a community that already has received two grants, and this latest request was for a sign in part of the park that is not open to the public.

During public comment period, Steve Powell of Marysville thanked the police and fire departments for their actions in trying to save a friend’s life after a heart attack over the weekend. He also thanked chaplain Dan Hazen and encouraged the city to support that program. He said his sister’s husband recently died, and they didn’t have that program there. “He helped lead us through the process in a calm manner, helping us through one of the hardest times of our lives,” he said.

In other news Monday:

•Public works director Kevin Nielsen said the famous castle on First Street was given to the builder’s son. It will be located somewhere in the Lakewood area, he added.

•Ballew said the city has been invited to apply for a federal Legacy grant that, if awarded, could pay up to $723,000 for the $1.3 million Mother Nature’s Window project.

•The city saved 18 percent on the Sunnyside Boulevard water main project, so that money will be available for other projects, Nielsen said.
