Hearing on fire department’s future: The Mukilteo City Council has scheduled a public hearing for 7 p.m. Monday on a proposal for the city’s fire department to be absorbed by Fire District 1. The hearing will take place at Mukilteo City Hall, 11930 Cyrus Way. The contract for fire services is expected to cost about $5 million a year. The City Council is scheduled to vote on the issue Sept. 2. More information is available online at http://tinyurl.com/p28t4w6. Fire District 1 serves most of southwest Snohomish County and contracts with the cities of Brier, Edmonds and Mountlake Terrace.
