I am pleased to submit the 2019 to 2020 Biennial Budget (PDF). The budget continues to support the work the community has completed over the past two years to develop and prioritize the city’s park and trail system; grow the local economy; draw visitors from around the region; and maintain taxpayer owned assets. I am looking forward to working with the city council, city staff, residents, business owners, and all community stakeholders to continue building Stanwood as a great place to live, work, and play.
Please join me in recognizing the professionalism and dependability of all of the dedicated officers on our police force. January 9th is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, so when you see our officers, please let them know they are appreciated! Also, if you haven’t had an opportunity to visit the Veteran’s Memorial constructed by the Stanwood Historical Society then head on over to the Floyd and check it out. And finally, remember to like and follow the City of Stanwood and sign up for the monthly e-newsletter and follow Discover Stanwood Camano for family fun and activities in 2019.

This 2019 to 2020 Budget (PDF) continues the prior biennium focus on investments and improvements to attract and retain young families. Our efforts have a strong emphasis on sustainability. For example, as we work with the community to decide how and when to develop newly acquired parklands, we are also considering what each park’s ongoing maintenance and operation costs would be and how we can afford to maintain them.
