Officer Roberson is a 9 year veteran officer, who spent the last five years working closely with the Arlington Police Department as an officer for the Stillaguamish Tribe. Officer Roberson began his law enforcement career in Oregon, graduating from the Oregon State Police Academy in 2010.

Officer Roberson is filling the second of two approved new Police Officer positions that were included in the 2019 adopted budget. The approval of the new positions is a testament to the Mayor and Council's commitment to finding public safety staffing. Welcome aboard, Colin!
Volunteers at Arlington Community Food Bank Receive Mayor's Volunteer Award

The City continued our salute to our community volunteers by presenting the latest Mayor's Volunteer Award to the incredible volunteers of the Arlington Community Food Bank . More than 30 volunteers contributed 8,547 hours in fiscal year 2017-2018 to make sure those in need in our community did not go hungry. The volunteers have already provided 6,778 hours of service in fiscal year 2018-2019.

In 2017-2018, they provided services to 15,360 individuals and have provided service to 12,258 individuals in fiscal year 2018-2019. The volunteers provide more than 130 Meals 'til Monday bags each week to children in the Arlington Public Schools who qualify for free and reduced lunch to supplement their food for the weekend at home. They offer a Birthday Bag program to families receiving service with a child younger than 16. The bag includes cake, candles, a blank birthday card, party favors, and a small gift that is age and gender appropriate. In addition, they have created a Senior Supplement rack with non-food amenities such as toilet tissue, laundry soap, dish soap, paper towels, and more to qualifying seniors.

The Arlington Community Food Bank was established in 1981 in response to the growing  concern of hunger in the communities of Arlington and Lakewood. Their mission is to provide emergency food at no cost to children, families, and individuals within this area. They never turn anyone away without food. The food bank is able to keep the doors open because of the generosity of local businesses, organizations, and individual donors. The food bank is also the recipient of grocery rescue items from local grocery stores including Costco, Walmart, and Safeway.

The Arlington Community Food Bank is always looking for new volunteers to help with the operation. If you are interested in taking community action against hunger, contact the Arlington Community Food Bank at 360-435-1631 or email acfbwa@gmail.com.
