Council makes quick work of some pleasant duty
Last updated 9/15/2017 at Noon
Members of the Mill Creek City Council were in and out of their first meeting of September within an hour. But not before enjoying some of the better parts of representing the residents of the city.
The council honored the coaches and players of the U-12 Mill Creek Little League softball team, which won the state championship with a 20-0 victory over the team from Redmond, and then represented the state at the Western Regional World Series in San Bernardino, Calif.
On a more serious note, the council approved a motion to authorize City Manager Rebecca Polittozzo to apply for funds from the Snohomish County Hotel/Motel Small Grant Fund that could be utilized as part of the city’s tourism initiative to expand the annual Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Veteran’s Day celebrations.
Without missing a beat, Councilmember Donna Michelson took center stage to present a dozen homeowners with Great Garden Awards for the display of flowers and greenery in their front yard. The homeowners were given a yard sign to display in front of their homes as well as a token to commemorate their achievement.
A slide show of the winning gardens was displayed while the ambitious gardeners came forward to accept their awards. The Great Garden Awards were given to:
