The Beacon invites continued community connection
Get take out, attend online meetings, write us a letter
Last updated 3/31/2021 at 9:19am
The Mill Creek Beacon conducted a community engagement project through the month of March. We invited people within and near Mill Creek to attend city council meetings and enjoy local take-out, then write a letter to the editor about any part of that experience. The goal was to encourage community connection: engagement, and a presence of mind as to what your community is all about.
The next open Mill Creek City Council meeting is in April. While we will continue coverage, the project is complete, but the community engagement can continue. More than 850 people took a look, and viewed stories around a Mill Creek community connection.
And while the official project is done, these three steps can be a repeat, anytime you want to connect with the restaurateurs, other diners, government decisions and community newspaper in your town.
Keep going, Mill Creek. Take a look at the public meeting schedules in your area for city government, school board, county government, health district and fire commission. The decisions made impact your day to day life, and if you want to know more, just contact the Mill Creek Beacon and we'll dig in, ask questions, and give you something to read about.
The three-step process is this:
1) Get local take-out.
2) Attend a city council meeting on Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/97956758599.
3) Share ideas by writing a letter to the editor: millcreeked[email protected], "community connection" in the subject-line.
March 31, the Mill Creek City Council meets in executive session to discuss litigation. It is not anticipated that any decisions will be made and the meeting is not open to the public. Past meeting information is posted here: https://bit.ly/38N4JPF. Meetings continue to be offered remotely due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The next open public meeting for the city is scheduled for the first, second and fourth Tuesday of every month, making the next open meeting on April 6. The city agenda is not yet posted for that meeting, but upcoming issues include a city council response to The Blake Decision, which impacts simple possession drug offenses within city limits. The last video recorded discussion on that issue is here:
