The potential for historic snowfall prompted cancellations and schedule changes for public agencies in Issaquah and elsewhere on the Eastside.
Issaquah City Hall is open for normal hours. Though Julius Boehm Pool and the Issaquah Community Center remain open, classes and programs have been cancelled. The community center is open for drop-in use and the pool is open for lap and public swims. Call the community center at 837-3326 for additional weather updates.
Issaquah Municipal Court is open for normal hours today to hear in-custody matters only, as regularly scheduled.
The forecast also led officials to cancel public meetings Tuesday and Wednesday.
Issaquah officials canceled the City Council meeting scheduled for Tuesday night. Meanwhile, state Department of Natural Resources canceled a planned discussion about recreation on public lands from Tiger Mountain to Snoqualmie Pass. (The state meeting is to be rescheduled for early February.)
In addition, Issaquah School District campuses closed for Tuesday due to icy road conditions and possible snow.
Wanted: winter wonderland photos
The snow on the ground prompted some Issaquah-area residents to head outside to play, or at least admire, a winter wonderland.
For upcoming editions, The Issaquah Press seeks photos of wintry scenes and snow-related activities. Email your contact information and photos to Managing Editor Kathleen R. Merrill email@example.com, or contact us on Twitter or Facebook, by 5 p.m. Friday.
