[ARCHIVED] CARES Act Funding on City Council Agendas

The City Council invites the Mountlake Terrace community to provide input on how the city will use Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Employment Security (CARES) Act funding. The city is eligible to receive up to $647,000 in CARES Act funding from the federal government and administered by Washington State.  Cities will be reimbursed for certain approved uses related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

At its June 1 meeting, the Mountlake Terrace City Council held a discussion on possible uses for the CARES Act funding. The city’s goal is to put the funds back into the community to help residents and small businesses.  Top priorities included support for residents through food banks and paying bills, and assisting small businesses with loans or grants.

The City Council will continue this discussion at a study session on Thursday, June 11 at 7:00 p.m.  The Council will likely take action and adopt a plan for the funding at its June 15 City Council meeting. The public can provide input via email at  Emails must be received by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, June 15.

“It is important to know there are specific uses that are eligible for these funds and the Council is working within that framework in order for the city to be reimbursed,” stated Community Relations Director Virginia Olsen.
