She made valuable impacts in her work on our forthcoming Economic Development Action Plan and provided guidance on a wide variety of planning projects. Council and I are proud of her appointment as a trial court judge and look forward to seeing her serve all of us in a new capacity."

In observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, City offices will be closed Monday, January 16. Offices will reopen on Tuesday, January 17.

Special yard waste collection event for city storm cleanup in North Bend: Have you and your neighbors accumulated wood debris from recent storms? The North Bend Public Works crew and Republic Services will be here to offload debris for residents at the Public Works Yard on Saturday, January 21, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Clicked the linked headline for drop-off instructions.

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.

Picture of the Week: Mr. Burgener at Two Rivers School shared a beautiful photo of his Environmental Stewardship Project Group checking trail cams, planting trees, and trimming blackberries at the South Fork Snoqualmie River. “This group heads out weekly, taking advantage of our beautiful location with its many amazing regional habitats within walking or biking distance. In addition to getting students outside and learning about nature, the group gives back to our community through planting and restoration activities,” Two Rivers posted.
