City finances, blight and roadways subject of Mayor Alumbaugh’s State of the City address

The city’s finances, blight and roadways we’re the focus of Marion Mayor Jess Alumbaugh’s State of the City address on Wednesday.

On the city’s financial well-being, city controller Julie Flores says departments spent 98 percent of the budget, adding more than $600,000 to cash reserves.

Alumbaugh teased a few businesses that may be coming to town and spoke about potentially making Washington and Adams streets into two-ways once again.

Marion Utilities Director Chuck Binkerd gave an update on the city’s recycling efforts as well, discussing a plan to switch from the blue bag system to one more in line with the county’s recycling facility as it’s a more effective way to protect the environment.
