Welcome sign unveiled for Bonney Lake’s Eastown
Now you are welcome no matter which way you enter the city.
The City of Bonney Lake officially unveiled a welcome sign at the Eastown entrance to the city on Tuesday.
Located on the southwest corner of the state Route 410 – 234th Avenue East intersection, the sign is similar but smaller to the one at Ascent Park welcoming drivers entering the city from the east.
The sign was originally designed for Ascent Park, but officials realized it was too small to be paired with the statue at the park and put the sign in storage until it could be located on the other side of the city following the SR410 widening project that wrapped up earlier this year.
Facilities & Special Projects Manager Gary Leaf estimated the total cost of the sign and project to be $20,000.
The sign sits on a city right-of-way so there was no cost for the land, but city officials were sure to thank Eastown landowner Bob Stobie who allowed city workers access to the site through his land.
This is Part 2 of a three part in-paper Enumclaw mayoral debate between Jan Molinaro and Kim Lauk. Both are first time candidates for mayor. The incumbent, Mayor Liz Reynolds, chose not to seek a third term.
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are on the rise across the U.S. and Washington and King County data show a similar trend towards more syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia.
Our family enthusiastically supports Jan Molinaro as Enumclaw’s next mayor. His operations and fiscal management along with his leadership experience is superlative and would be greatly valued as a visionary leader of our community.
Bills show hundreds of residents doubled or tripled their water usage in the past two months, but many say they’ve not increased, or even decreased, their water consumption, and the city’s system must be wrong.
The Courier-Herald is publishing a three-part debate between Black Diamond Mayor Carol Benson and her opponent Judy Baxley. Last week, candidates answered questions concerning the city, and what they would do as mayor to address any issues. This week, Part 2, is a chance for candidates to rebut their opponent’s statements. Part 3 will wrap-up with final statements.
