Arlington: City Council sets goals for departments
The City Council has unanimously approved a series of goals for each city department for the next six years.

The goals, approved at a meeting last week, are expected to remain in place from 2008 to 2013.
Marysville: Financial help to replace old wood stoves
Marysville residents can save up to $750 and help clean the air by replacing their old wood stoves or fireplace inserts through a new program being launched by the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency.
The city is in danger of violating the federal government’s new health-based standards for wood smoke, according to the agency.
Wood stoves installed prior to 1995 are eligible for the program. These stoves emit particulates that can cause serious health problems for children and people with respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, according to the agency.
The program runs through February 2008.
