Street Sweeping to Clear Sand from Roadways Continues
 
After spreading 800 tons of sand and salt on Arlington streets to help with traction and melting of the up to two feet of  snow we received in February, Arlington Maintenance and Operations crews are now cleaning up that sand. This important work prevents the sand from collecting in our storm drains and eventually flowing into local creeks and rivers.

You can help by making sure that your vehicle is off the street by 7:00 a.m. on the day your street is being swept. The City divides the sweeping routes into two consecutive weeks of each month. The map for next week's sweeping route  is shown below (click to see the full scale map).
City of Arlington Receives 20th Consecutive WellCity Award
 
The City of Arlington recently earned the 2019 WellCity Award for its wellness programming for 2018. The city met all 40 of the WellCity Award requirements established by the AWC Employee Benefit Trust. In recognition of this achievement, City of Arlington has earned a 2% discount on all AWC Trust medical premiums in 2020.
 
The City is among 114 dedicated employers in Washington to earn the WellCity Award this year. Arlington is the only city in the state to earn the award each year that it has been given.
 
Our goal is to build a workplace culture where employee health is valued and supported, which saves our taxpayers money.  The benefits to an active wellness program are reduced costs related to less sick days taken by employees, reduced disability and health care claim costs, fewer workers' compensation claims, and ultimately a more productive workforce.

The City of Arlington is now hiring for seasonal maintenance worker positions for our Maintenance & Operations and Public Works departments.

Seasonal employees will f ocus on general landscape maintenance, maintaining flower beds, weeding, mowing, cutting brush, some building maintenance, assisting with cemetery burial services, assisting in completion installation of water meters, infrastructure repairs, and routine maintenance on Stormwater, Wastewater and Compost Facility equipment and facilities.

More information and the opportunity to apply for these positions is available on our website. Applications will be accepted online only until Sunday, March 24, 2019 at 5:00 p.m.

Tell Us About Your Well-Being, Enter to Win a Bistro San Martin Gift Card
 

Do you feel connected to the Stillaguamish Valley community? Do you have access to the prevention resources you need? Are you getting appropriate health screenings? The City of Arlington along with some key community healthcare partners want to lead the way in understanding and improving well-being in the Stillaguamish Valley. We're inviting the whole community to participate in creating a well-being "northstar" for the region by taking a confidential online survey located at www.bit.ly/stillysurvey19.

 
Your participation will help us better understand the needs and desires of the people who live in the Stillaguamish Valley (zip codes 98241 and 98223), so community partners can respond accordingly. The project is funded and organized by Stilly Valley Health Connections and the Cascade Valley Health Foundation in collaboration with The Providence Institute for a Healthier Community.
 
You can take the confidential survey online by visiting www.bit.ly/stillysurvey19. You'll need 10-15 minutes to get through the questions, and it will be open through April 15th. The goal is to gather at least 500 community responses, but hopefully more. Participants who enter their email address and demographic information will be entered to win a $100 gift card to our beloved Bistro San Martin restaurant in downtown Arlington! Please note that your information will not be made public.
Remember to Spring Forward!
 
Daylight saving time starts this Sunday, March 10, at 2:00 a.m. By moving the clocks forward, we get to enjoy more daylight during the spring and summer.

Daylight saving time is also a great time to test your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Take a few minutes to test and change the batteries in these two important alarms when you change your clocks!
