"No Fairs, No Festivals, No Parades.....What To Do?" By Marge Rhodes

2020 was a year we’d all like to forget, but like it or not, it happened. The Women Democrats for Action (“WDA”) could not participate in local festivals and parades. As a result, they turned their energies and cash to the needs of the community, in particular families that are impacted the most from the pandemic.

Employee turnover and the loss of institutional knowledge contributes to poor City of Mill Creek snow response

The city now has one only one four-wheel drive truck with a snow plow attachment to keep city streets clear of snow. The four-person maintenance staff made the best of it and worked many overtime hours, but this was entirely inadequate for last weekend’s snow storm.

Mill Creek city streets were filled with snow over the Valentine's Day weekend. It took days for rising temperatures to make streets passable.

Public works staff did their best, but weren't able to totally remove snow from most roadways.
