Kudos to Mukilteo City Council for its unanimous decision to put the much-debated annexation issue on the Nov. 3 ballot, not just for those in the potential annexation area but also as an advisory vote for Mukilteo residents themselves.
Kudos to both city staff and elected officials for finally holding open houses for current residents like the ones theyve held for those hoping to be annexed.
Inexplicably, state law prohibits those in the current city footprint from having a say on the ballot about who joins their city.
But for Mukilteans this is more about what not who comes in...
