City seeks volunteers for Pro and Con Statement Committees

The City of Mountlake Terrace seeks volunteers to serve on the Pro and Con Statement Committees for Proposition No. 1 on the Aug. 2 primary ballot.

The Pro and Con Statement Committees prepare written arguments that will appear in the voters’ pamphlet supporting or opposing the approval of Prop 1.

The City Council will be considering an ordinance at its May 2 meeting that would put a levy lid lift on the ballot. If approved by voters, the levy lid lift would begin in 2017 to fund lease payments at Interim City Hall, support funding of recreation and parks and rebuild the general fund balance.

Portions of the levy for lease payment and general fund balance would be in place for four years. Funding for recreation and parks would continue beyond four years.

Individuals interested in serving in this capacity must submit their name, address and telephone number to Virginia Olsen, City Clerk and Community Relations Director. This information must be received no later than 4:30 p.m. on May 6 at this address or email:

Virginia Olsen, City Clerk/Community Relations Director
6100 219th St. SW., Ste. 200
Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043


The City Council will consider those citizens who express interest in serving on the Pro and Con Statement Committees and make appointments at their May 12 work/study session.

Following appointment, the Pro and Con Statement Committee member names will be submitted to Snohomish County Elections Office on May 13. The Committee members must submit their Pro and Con statements for the voter pamphlets to Snohomish County Elections by May 24 at 5 p.m. and rebuttal statements by May 27 at 5 p.m.
