Bothell Council moves to new building
As of Monday, May 14, Bothell City Council meetings and other public meetings will be held at the new Municipal Court Building at 10116 NE 183rd Street, next to the new Bothell Police Station, unless otherwise noted.
Meetings were formerly held at the City Hall Council chambers which will be remodeled to provide additional office space.
Bothell City Council meetings are held the first three Mondays of each month, and other groups such as the Bothell Planning Commission and additional city boards, commissions and committees are held throughout each month.
"Until further notice, the Council and other meetings will be held in the Municipal Court Building's courtroom," said City Manager Jim Thompson. "While it's not a traditional council chambers or meeting space, it will be very functional with more seating capacity than our current facility."
The existing City Hall (located at 18305 101st Avenue NE) was built in 1938 with city council meeings held there since 1938. The building also houses the Executive Department, Finance Department, and the Parks & Recreation Division. After the existing City Hall Council Chambers is remodeled into office space, it will not be available for general public use for various meetings, as it has been for the past several years.
The new City of Bothell Municipal Court Building opened its doors on April 11. Prior to that, the Municipal Court had operated at the North Creek Business Park since January 1994.
