Message from the City Council

We are so grateful to you, our community, for your support of the public safety measures. Both measures are passing with solid margins, making our public safety future much brighter.

With your help, the City will now have the resources to better address critical public safety issues, from property theft and cybercrime to drugs, homelessness and mental illness. The Fire Department will be better equipped to serve north Bothell, with an additional six firefighters and an aid car.  We will completely replace the Downtown and Canyon Park fire stations with two new, modern stations, enabling the Fire Department to serve you for the next 30-50 years.

We’re also very proud of the participation this election. Record-high turnout is something to be proud of. We hope you will continue engaging with us, whether through social media, attending or watching Council meetings, and participating in events. We are always interested in hearing from you; contact us.

Again, thank you for your confidence in the City. We promise to keep you informed as we move forward. Congratulations on your public safety future.
