Contract for highway design: The Marysville City Council last week awarded a $1.4 million contract to HDR Engineering to create a preliminary design for an expanded interchange of I-5 and Highway 529. The project would add on- and off-ramps to the freeway to create access to the city from the south, bypassing railroad crossings at other exits. The design work will help the city obtain funding from the state and federal governments to build the project.

Utility discounts: There are a number of utility discount programs available to Arlington seniors and low income families.

The city offers a reduced utility (water, sewer and wastewater) rate for seniors who are 61 years old or older and total household income is $30,000 or less (including non-taxable income). Applications are available at City Hall or by calling 360-403-3421.
