01/02/2018: "Town Of Friday Harbor Has Good Year"

By Duncan Wilson

It has been a very busy year in the Town of Friday Harbor. We completed the Water Transmission project, rebuilt Park Street, added a number of sidewalks and constructed a new Pocket Park on Spring Street.

Sometimes lost in the busy summer, ongoing construction and the crush of our busy lives, we forget to say thank you to some of the hardest working people on the island.

The Town of Friday Harbor staff had another spectacular year in providing service to the community. Keeping the books straight, water flowing, waste water plant operating, cleaning the streets, jetting the stormwater systems and maintaining the parks….these are big responsibilities.

I am very proud when I am told by citizens that the Town has never looked better. This is not an accident; the dedicated employees from Finance, Community Development, Public Works, and Administration have worked very hard to improve all aspects of Friday Harbor.

The Public Works staff built a parking lot downtown on Spring Street in 7 days, with a shoestring budget and staff. The crew put the finishing touches on Park Street, turning it from one the worst to one of the best roads in town.

From flower baskets, to tree planting, to park improvement there is a pride in their workmanship. Thank you all for another fantastic year.

From the comments I get I am not the only one to feel this way. Congratulations!

(Duncan Wilson is the Friday Harbor Town Administrator )
