This is a very important time for the city of Snohomish. The city is facing many major decisions in these distressed economic times. The police force is working hard to bring down crime rates. Water and utility rates are reaching abnormally high charges, coupled with an impending 2012 budget shortfall.
The latest survey sent to each property owner outlined options, which is really saying Snohomish is facing long-range problems, where a quick fix won’t work. Strong, common-sense steps must begin this year.
Will you, citizens of Snohomish, consider running for City Council? Common sense, undergirded with care and love for Snohomish, is a good starting point.
The sign-up period ends on Friday.
