    1. From a previous city council story, the council “discussed a possible May return to in-person public meetings. More time is currently needed to finish preparing various equipment and staff requirement for holding those meetings inside council chambers at the new Mountlake Terrace City Hall. Councilmembers agreed they were looking forward to having in-person public meetings again and said that targeting a date in May sounded reasonable.”
