Wingert said that the City Council needs a new perspective, “We need a fresh set of eyes and practical solutions for the problems facing our city. The old way of doing things isn't going work anymore.”

Wingert believes there are four key areas that we must focus on:

  • Strong Police and Fire presence to keep our neighborhoods safe.
  • A business friendly environment to help our local economy grow.
  • Real fiscal responsibility means providing essential city services with low taxes.
  • A great, cost effective parks and recreational program.

Mill Creek City Manager takes steps to implement the city’s strategic plan

Ken Armstrong, Mill Creek City Manager, has taken steps to implement the City of Mill Creek’s Strategic Plan.

In the spring edition of the City of Mill Creek’s newsletter (The City of Mill Creek Current • Spring 2013), I mentioned that I saw exciting opportunities for the community of Mill Creek – opportunities to reinvest in itself and in its future.

In early April, the Mill Creek City Council met with senior City staff in an all-day retreat to talk about some of the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead in the next 20 years. Much of the day’s conversation focused on the pros and cons of annexation as well as long-term economic and community development.

While no action was taken during the retreat, the City Council indicated its desire to initiate ongoing discussions relating to economic development. The Council asked City staff to continue to explore economic development opportunities and to engage Mill Creek businesses and property owners in that process.
