Harris said he has lived since 1978 on the Sammamish Plateau in unincorporated King County, but always considered himself a citizen of Issaquah, paying taxes to the Issaquah School District and shopping and dining in the city. Further, Harris served on the city Parks & Recreation Board for 11 years. He considers himself a regular at the Issaquah Community Center.

Additionally, daily drop-in fees for the Issaquah Community Center and the Julius Boehm Pool, when it reopens, will increase by $1. Read more
