Have a question or concern about Enumclaw’s city government? A complaint, even?

Enumclaw citizens now have an informal opportunity to make their feelings known, thanks to a monthly session billed as “Coffee With the Mayor.”

Mayor Jan Molinaro has instituted the casual gatherings, planned for 9 to 10 a.m. the first Monday of every month. They will take place in council chambers of Enumclaw City Hall, 1339 Griffin Ave.

Molinaro said the hour-long sessions are for anyone wanting to talk about specific issues or just pass some time. “We’ll just let the conversation flow,” he said.

The first “Coffee With the Mayor” took place in March. The next is set for April 2.

Molinaro was a member of the Enumclaw City Council prior to being elected to the city’s top office in November 2017 and taking the reins as mayor in January.
