Mayor's Message January 2023

Posted on December 27, 2022 at 11:40 AM by Jan Molinaro

Happy New Year Enumclaw! A new year can bring so many new possibilities. Will you make and keep any resolutions this year? How prepared will you be in a time of emergency? Has this winter have you thinking about high winds and power outages? How do you respond if it occurs? Is there any time to give back to the community whether in a nonprofit setting or serving on a city board or commission? Why not just try to slow down and watch life around you rather than let life speed bye. Yes there are times this pleasant scenario is impossible to accomplish, however one or two days during each week would provide quality of life benefits that could reward you in countless ways. Less stress. More knowledge about your surroundings and take into account where your life goals currently are at.


With this New Year try one or two positive steps to make life different for yourself and others. Whether a resolution or just make some type of change. Either way it can make life more interesting and exciting.

Mayor’s Message for November 2021

This Veterans Day at the November 8th City Council meeting please join us at 7 PM as we honor those Vietnam War veterans that live in the plateau area. It is our hope that the community will support this ceremony at the council meeting to honor those who served in a war that had controversy during this era. With the recent gathering for the Vietnam Wall it is appropriate to continue to honor those veterans who served during this war and continue to welcome home these veterans who did not have the warm welcome when they came back to their home.
