Mountlake Terrace City Council has been meeting in the new City Hall for all of July.Since the ceiling collapse closed the old City Council Chambers, the council has met in multiple places.

Sometimes they�ve crammed into a meeting room that had little room for spectators.While the council has effectively moved already, city staff have been in transition for weeks, organizing and packing.�We�ve been up to our eyeballs in boxes,� said Virginia Olsen, the city clerk.Mountlake Terrace�s next City Hall is already planned, although it hasn�t been funded.A $40 million Civic Center complex was endorsed in December by a city facilities task force.The project would include a new police station and a new community center in addition to City Hall.Chris Fyall writes for the Herald of Everett.
