A positive state

Anacortes Mayor Dean Maxwell addressed a Chamber of Commerce crowd of about 80 people Thursday, concluding the “state of the city” is positive despite challenges including reduced state and federal assistance. The detailed report noted completion of a 17-year project to replace 36-inch water lines from the Skagit River. In addition to local residents, Anacortes water customers include two refineries, Naval Air Station Whidbey Island and much of the City of Oak Harbor. Maxwell, two years into his fourth four-year term as mayor, reported the city budget is once again “balanced.” He lauded City staff and “partners” including local volunteers and members of the business community.

About Photographer Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
