Pioneer Elementary Second Graders Visit Mayor, City Departments
 

As part of their class work on cities and citizenship, second graders from Pioneer Elementary recently visited with City departments at City Hall, the Police Station, and Fire Station. The second graders had plenty of questions for the Mayor and City staff about how decisions by the City Council are made, what tools and equipment our employees use to complete our work, and how they can be helpful in the community. We always enjoy it when our youth come visit and learn about how our city operates!

City Employees Graduate from Leadership Snohomish County
 
Arlington graduates from Leadership Snohomish County Lorene Robinson, Bryan Terry, and Jennifer Egger.
Congratulations to the City's Information Technology (IT) Director Bryan Terry  and Airport Operations Specialist graduated from the Leadership Snohomish County (LSC) program at the end of May.

LSC's mission is to connect, ignite, and develop sustainable leaders to strengthen our communities. The nine-month program provides education and opportunities to bring together professionals from all sectors to examine critical issues that impact Snohomish County.

As part of the leadership training, each participant works on a team capstone project. This year, Bryan's team worked on a project to develop an engagement and marketing plan from the results of Summit 2038. Lorene's team worked with the company Mobilize to create a platform for LSC members and alumni to stay connected during the leadership course and beyond.

Also graduating from LSC in 2019 is Stilly Valley Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Jennifer Egger. Jennifer's team worked on a website project for the North Snohomish County Human Services providers.

Congratulations, Bryan, Lorene, and Jennifer!

Time:    8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.
Place:    Arlington City Council Chambers
                238 N. Olympic Avenue

SIMPLE IRA.

John Meno built his Edward Jones practice specializing in
business retirement plans. Now, 21 years later, he wants
to pay it forward by sharing his experience with others.
