Marysville, the county seat of Yuba County, is one of California's historic cities. It's history as a community goes back to the Gold Rush days. The city is strategically located 40 miles north of the state capitol of Sacramento where Highways 70 and 20 intersect. It is served by two railroad lines, two highways, a regional airport, a public bus line, and is the center of a broad agricultural and outdoor recreation area.
Marysville is home to the Yuba-Sutter Gold Sox, a community based, professionally run summer collegiate baseball team, and is the host for the Horizon Air Summer Series, a season long competition among a select number of summer collegiate teams.
Marysville, along with Yuba City (it's neighbor across the Feather River) has long been one of the leading agribusiness centers of California. Other business comes from retail sales, manufacturing, rice farming, stock raising and mining. Beale Air Force Base (to the east) also contributes significantly to the community's economy. Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy hunting, fishing, boating, swimming, golf, tennis and many other sports in Marysville and the nearby countryside and mountains.
The safety and appearance of our neighborhoods are important to all of us. The City is committed to doing all we can to encourage residents and businesses to remove unsightly and unsafe conditions.
The City is continuing to resolve blight and nuisance conditions in residential and commercial districts alike. If you see abandoned and derelict buildings, visible trash on properties, or inoperative or wrecked vehicles, please call our tip line at 749-3948 and leave a message. City staff will work to resolve the issue.

City Leaders Devise a Practical Response to New Medical Marijuana Laws
Recently, the City Council took action to make certain that a new set of state laws liberalizing the medical marijuana industry in California would not expose the community to adverse and undesirable effects. These new state laws—known as the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act—are sweeping in their potential impacts, so the need to manage those impacts properly is extremely important to the wellbeing of our residents and businesses. The City Council took great pains to control how these new state rules would affect Marysville so that not only the safety of the community but its reputation as a charming, family-centered town would not be compromised. After meeting with local advocates for and against medical marijuana, and hearing from people on all sides of the issue and local business owners, a consensus course of action was devised that a majority of Council members could agree on. Protecting public safety was of uppermost concern, and the Council believes it has accomplished that in the actions it has taken to control how the state’s new Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act will be carried out in Marysville. Without action on the part of the City Council, there was a real danger that the state alone would dictate the terms and conditions for the sale and use of marijuana for medicinal purposes.
When the two new ordinances go into effect on February 18, 2016, growing marijuana anywhere within the city limits will be prohibited, except inside a licensed medical marijuana dispensary, and only a maximum of two dispensaries will be permitted anywhere in the City. To be granted a dispensary license, an applicant, and every employee of the proposed business, will have to undergo thorough financial and criminal background investigations and the daily operations of the dispensary, as well as the building it occupies, will be subject to numerous stringent security protections. Later this spring, the Council will decide on the taxes and fees that will apply to the controlled cultivation and dispensing of medical marijuana.
