On Saturday, begin your fall festivities this weekend with safety: The Snoqualmie Police Department will be at North Bend City Hall on October 29, from 10 to 2 p.m. with an opportunity to rid your home of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Simply stop by and drop pills off to the police for disposal - a free and anonymous service.

Click the headline for the agenda packet, which includes instructions to access the virtual Zoom meeting, for those who prefer to join virtually.

Two Public Hearings are scheduled for November 1, at 7 p.m.: 

Both public hearings will be held during a regular City Council meeting, located at the North Bend City Hall. In addition to in-person, the meeting and hearing will be available online via Zoom.

Calling Snoqualmie Valley Youth – King County Youth Bill of Rights Project: The King County Youth Bill of Rights Task Force (KCYBOR) and Empower Youth Network are working together to engage 3,000 young people in Snoqualmie Valley in a youth-inspired, youth-led, youth-partnered project.

Help keep your neighborhood’s storm drains and culverts clear: City crews work hard to keep storm drains and culverts clear of leaves and other debris, but with thousands of these in North Bend, we could use your help. Fallen leaves pile up on storm drains on our streets, blocking rainwater from draining, which can lead to neighborhood flooding. Flooding can cause safety concerns and property damage.

Here are some tools to help you get your vote in by November 8:

  • Your North Bend drop box is located at the North Bend Library (115 E 4th St).
  • Find voting centers here: https://tinyurl.com/3sced89y

You are invited to an Arbor Day celebration: On Saturday, November 12, from 10 - 1 p.m., Mayor Rob, Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust, City staff and community will be meeting up in celebration of Abor Day and planting native trees and shrubs to help restore a healthy forested canopy along the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River, across from the Snoqualmie Valley Trail at SE Tanner Road. Spots will be limited so please register in advance, HERE.
