SURPRISE - Woodinville has a new mayor!

  • Written by David B. Clark

The Woodinville City Council met on June 5th.  Following the amended agenda approval and a presentation about the future of King County Metro on the Eastside by Grace Carlson, Eastside Service Planner, the council heard public comment. 

Local residents Phyllis Keller and Penelope Jupiter Zela both spoke out against the current Civic Campus proposal and urged the council to consider other options before finalizing the current plan.

Then Consent Calendar was approved and Business Items were addressed. It was then that Mayor Bernie Talmas made an announcement that shook some of the members of the council.  Talmas said, “Before we do our next agenda, I have two announcements to make. First, I will be stepping down as mayor in a moment, so we will have to select a new mayor. Second, I’ll be selling my house and moving outside the city boundary so under state law I will resign my council seat, which I will do reluctantly, as soon as we select a new mayor.” He continued, “It’s been a true privilege and honor to serve the citizens of Woodinville the last 8 ½ years, both on the council and as mayor. I’m proud of what we have accomplished in this time.”

Count Us In Results on Homelessness

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff
The 2018 Count Us In report found 12,112 people experiencing homelessness across the region on January 26, 2018, including 5,792 people sheltered in emergency shelters, safe havens and transitional housing and 6,320 people on the streets, in vehicles or staying in tents or encampments (both sanctioned and unsanctioned). The count includes a 15 percent increase in unsheltered people and a four percent increase overall, the smallest increases in homelessness in the region in the past four years.
 
The biggest improvement was a 31 percent reduction in veteran homelessness, the result of increased investments and strong collaboration across federal, state, county and local governments and local non-profit agencies. This coordination includes weekly conferencing among the partners utilizing a by-name list to connect each veteran to appropriate services and housing to achieve and maintain stability. Local housing authorities and local landlords are also partners in this effort.
