It appears Mountlake Terrace will get a new City Hall.

As of Friday’s election update, the threshold number of 4,030 votes has been passed. With 4,155 votes counted on the measure and 69.65 percent of votes in support of the measure, it appears likely that the measure will ultimately pass.

The measure allows the City to raise $12.5 million to build an approximately 18,000 square-foot City Hall building, as well as add approximately 3,000 square feet to the existing police station.

The new building is needed so the City can stop renting office space to conduct City Hall business. The City of Mountlake Terrace has been renting space from Redstone Corporate Center, located at 6100 219th St. S.W., for City Hall space following a 2008 ceiling collapse in the old City Hall building, which made the building unsafe for employees. Rent costs the city about $40,000 per month.
