Beware of bike thefts
The Mill Creek Police Department is warning people about an increase in bicycle thefts in town.
The areas of Main Street and North Creek Drive are hardest hit, officer Ian Durkee said. Many of the thefts involved open garages or bicycles left outside. People are reminded to use bike locks and store bikes out of sight. They also should keep their bike serial numbers, including make and model, in a safe place in case it gets stolen. That makes it easier for them to get the bike back if it is recovered. Volunteers needed: The city of Lynnwood needs volunteers to serve on various community groups, including the arts commisssion and the library board. Applicants must be registered voters within city limits. No experience is needed. More info: 425-670-5023.
Artists sought: Lynnwood also is seeking creative submissions from artists to create public art in the City Center, where a new apartment complex is being built. The online-only applications are due by Sept. 10.
Planners are seeking “an outdoor, visually beautiful work of art that invites interaction,” according to the guidelines. The piece must be less than 10 feet tall and installed by early 2017.
