The YES for MLT committee is sponsoring two events next week, a fundraising dinner with live music, and a presentation of Civic Center 101.
“A Mountlake Terrace St. Patrick’s Day Bash” is scheduled for Friday, March 15, 6 p.m. at the Nile Shriners Golf Course, 6601-244th St. S.W in Mountlake Terrace. Tickets are $15; tickets for youth 13-years-old and younger are $7.50. The event features a corned beef and cabbage dinner, a cash bar, and live music from the MTHS jazz combo and the 44th St. Blues Band.
With Proposition 1 on the upcoming April 23 ballot, the dinner represents a chance for the YES for MLT committee to replenish their coffers for a campaign push in support of the municipal bond measure. A portion of the event’s ticket sales will go to the committee’s political fund; the group has spent $1673 of the $1,754.42 they have raised so far, according to records with the state’s Public Disclosure Commission.
The YES for MLT committee is hosting a presentation of Civic Center 101 at the Lake Ballinger Clubhouse, 23000 Lakeview Dr., on Tuesday, March 12, beginning at 7 p.m. City Manager John Caulfield and Police Chief Greg Wilson have been invited to present the city’s history, hopes and plans for a new civic center consisting of a new city hall, a remodeled and expanded police station, an updated library and a connecting green space at 232nd Street Southwest and 58th Avenue West. The free event will include an opportunity to ask questions and enjoy some light refreshments.
Civic Center 101 is also set to be presented on Monday, March 11, as part of the city’s regularly scheduled Planning Commission meeting at 7 p.m. at interim City Hall, 6100-219th St. S.W., Suite 200.
