Thank you to voters for passing levy
We would like to thank Snoqualmie voters for passing city of Snoqualmie Proposition 1, the Public Safety Operations, Streets and Parks Maintenance Levy.
Approval of this levy was critical to support current levels of public safety in Snoqualmie, maintenance of the city’s parks and trails system, and maintenance of safe streets.
Your yes vote will ensure that all Snoqualmie citizens continue to benefit from these services and enjoy the high quality of life our community has built.

Real threats are out there
A friend of mine relayed a story about a gentleman who had a concern with “threatening-looking dogs” “off leash” on local trails the other day. No attack mentioned, just that the dogs were threatening looking.
I am a newcomer to the Valley. I have only lived here for 13 years. I use various trails and mountains in the area, on an almost daily basis.
I have never been threatened, or seen any threatening-looking dogs on these trails. I have, however, been threatened by a man with a machete, and seen coyotes and bears on the trails. I have read about murderers, escaped convicts, cougar attacks and burglaries on the trail.
I suggested to my friend that he should re-evaluate his perception of what is a real threat, and what is “threatening looking.” Additionally, I suggested that the gentleman rescue a dog and assimilate it into our semi-country community, rather than be an antagonist.
