Meet Your Utility at Open House

The City Council and Mayor Mike McGinn, along with departments across city government, are hosting an open house at City Hall on Saturday, January 29 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mayor McGinn will highlight 2011 plans for his Engage Seattle initiative and the Cities of Service plan. Staff and volunteers will also conduct tours of the Mayor’s Office.

Molly Moon’s ice cream truck, the mobile food truck Skillet and Caspar Babypants, a popular local rock group for kids featuring the lead singer of Presidents of the USA, will be featured at the open house. The ice cream and food trucks and a City of Seattle fire truck will be parked on Fifth Avenue in front of City Hall.
