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. The City Council continues to work through the process of implementing these new ordinances, and the steps to assess a fee on the sale and cultivation of medical marijuana. Final implementation is expected later this summer.
