[ARCHIVED] Mountlake Terrace Seeks Individuals for City Hall Pro/Con Committees

The Mountlake Terrace City Council is seeking interested citizens to serve on the Pro and Con Statement Committees to prepare written arguments for the Snohomish County Voters’ Pamphlet supporting and opposing approval of Proposition No. 1 on the November 7, 2017 general election ballot.

Statements for and against Proposition No. 1 must be submitted to Snohomish County Auditor’s Office by August 15, 2017 and rebuttal statements will be due on August 18, 2017.

Proposition No. 1 would authorize the City of Mountlake Terrace to issue bonds for the construction of a new City Hall. The City Hall would include Council Chambers, lobby and city offices.

The City Council is now discussing the parameters of what to include in Proposition No. 1 and is expected to provide direction on Thursday, July 13 for an ordinance to be drafted for consideration at a special meeting on Thursday, July 20 at 7:00 p.m. The ordinance and appointment of these committees are due to Snohomish County by August 1.

Currently, the City Council is considering the City Hall Advisory Committee’s recommendation for a 19,210 square foot City Hall at an estimated cost of about $11.6 million financed over 30 years. At this estimate, the cost would be about 25.4¢ per $1,000 assessed value per year.

The Council provided direction to look at additional options and efficiencies and will discuss those options at their July 13 work/study session.

Applications to serve on the Pro and Con Statement Committees need to be received by the city no later than 5 p.m. on Tuesday, July 18, 2017. Since the City Council has not yet provided direction on the final ordinance, the City Clerk will reconfirm with applicants on Wednesday, July 19 before forwarding the final list of applicants for their July 20, 2017 special meeting.

Individuals interested in serving on the Pro and Con Statement Committees should submit their name, address, telephone number and email address to Virginia Olsen, City Clerk and Community Relations Director, at this address or email:


Virginia Olsen, City Clerk/Community Relations Director

6100 219th Street SW #200

Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043

Email: cityhall@ci.mlt.wa.us (please verify receipt at (425) 744-6206)
