The annual Snoqualmie City Council retreat takes place January 31 and February 1. The two-day retreat provides more time for council members to comprehensively cover topics that cannot be fully discussed during regular council meetings.
Discussion will focus on topics such as the upcoming biennial budget process, the financial condition of Snoqualmie, financial management, operating and utilities budgets, and strategic planning. The Capital Improvement Plan and projects will also be reviewed.
City council members will share their individual and organizational goals for the city and priorities for the coming year.
Mayor Matt Larson, Interim City Administrator Rick Rudometkin, and senior staff will attend. There will be presentations by Mayor Larson and Finance Director Robert Hamud.
Marilynne Beard, the former deputy city manager for the City of Kirkland, will facilitate the retreat. Mike Bailey, a finance consultant at the Municipal Research & Services Center (MRSC), will participate in financial discussions.
The retreat will be at the Club at Snoqualmie Ridge, 36005 SE Ridge Street in Snoqualmie from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
