Here’s a few updates from the City of Snoqualmie that have come across the wire this past week:
70 Degrees Outside Equals 100 Degrees in Your Car
As the weather gets warmer, the temperature inside a parked car can quickly rise above 100 degrees, even when the windows are left slightly open.
In Washington, it is unlawful to leave children under 16 years old unattended in a vehicle at any time, whether it is parked or idling. Animals left in a hot car, even for just a few minutes, can suffer from heat stroke, brain damage, or death. During warm weather, please be kind and leave your pets at home or keep them with you when you get out of your vehicle.

City of Snoqualmie Fire Chief Bob Rowe, Police Chief Steve McCulley, and Public Works/Interim Parks Director Daniel J. Marcinko welcome residents to meet with them to discuss whatever is on their mind regarding Public Safety, Parks & Recreation or Public Works – such as city projects around town and those planned for 2013.
The meeting will be on Tuesday, June 18, 3PM – 5PM at the Snoqualmie Police Station, 34825 SE Douglas St. Enjoy refreshments and conversation. For more information, please call 425-888-3333.
