Former Cheney City Administrator Arlene Fisher is scheduled to be sworn in as the City Manager for the City of Mountlake Terrace at its City Council meeting on Monday, March 3. The meeting takes place in council chambers of Interim City Hall, 6100-219th St. S.W., Ste. 200, at 7 p.m.
Fisher had been the City Administrator for Cheney for six years before accepting the Mountlake Terrace position last month. She had previously been with the City of Liberty Lake for six years, and earned both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree from Eastern Washington University.
Fisher was selected by council members to fill the vacancy created at Mountlake Terrace City Hall when former City Manager John Caulfield accepted the top administrative post at Lakewood (Pierce County) last September. She was picked over more than 50 other applicants for the position and comes highly recommended by city officials in Cheney.
“Mountlake Terrace is very fortunate to have Arlene as their new City Manager,” said LaRayne Conley, Executive Assistant to the Mayor and City Administrator in Cheney. “I have worked closely with her for over four years and she will be deeply missed here in Cheney.”
