TULALIP TRIBES EXECUTIVES tulaliptribes-nsn.gov
The Tulalip Tribes were organized under the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934. The Tulalip Constitution and Bylaws were approved January 24, 1936, and a charter ratified October 3, 1936. The governing body is the seven-member Tulalip Board of Directors. The Tribes provides many services to its members including early childhood development, higher education assistance, health and dental clinics, a pharmacy, a state-licensed chemical dependency recovery program, senior retirement home and cultural activities. We collaborate with the Marysville School District on the education of our youth. The Tulalip Tribes provides oversight to the Tulalip Housing Authority, which provides nearly 300 housing units for tribal members, and to the Tulalip Utilities District, the primary provider of water and sewer services. Of the 3,200 employees working for Tulalip Tribes, more than two-thirds are working in the Tribes’ business enterprises: Tulalip Resort Casino, Tulalip Housing, Tulalip Broadband, Tulalip Marina, Tulalip Liquor & Smoke Shop and the Quil Ceda Village Business Park.

Marysville’s Form of Government The City of Marysville is a Council-Mayor form of government. Seven residents, elected at-large, make up the City Council. The non-partisan terms are staggered, with elections for Positions 5, 6, 7 and the Mayor held in the same year, and Positions 1, 2, 3 and 4 elections held two years later. All elected city officials serve four-year terms. The mayor, who serves full time, presides over all meetings of the council and is recognized as the head of the City for ceremonial purposes. The mayor also has the power to supervise the other executive and administrative officers in the performance of their official duties, although these duties are most often managed by the city’s Administrative Officer. The Council selects one of its own members to serve a one-year term as Mayor Pro Tem. The City Council appoints the Chief Administrative Of-
ficer, who is responsible for the ongoing day-to-day operation of all city services as set forth by the Council. The Chief Administrative Officer also works closely with the mayor and council to assist them in formulating policies and programs. The City Council conducts work sessions the third Monday of each month, and holds regularly scheduled business meetings the second and fourth Monday of each month, excluding holidays. Meetings start at 7 p.m. All meetings are conducted in the Council Chambers, 2nd Floor in the City Hall, 1049 State Ave. The Council does not meet in the month of August. The public is invited to attend City Council meetings and to address the councilmembers and mayor on issues of importance. Agendas and minutes from previous meetings are available online at http://marysvillewa.gov; select Mayor & Council from the navigation bar.

There is nothing like Fourth of July in Arlington--so many fun things that make you feel charmed by our small town.

Photo Not Available Chuck James The Salish word for Tulalip is dxwlilap, which means “small-mouthed bay” and refers to the nearly landlocked nature of the cove. History books credit Captain Vancouver with discovering Tulalip Bay in 1794, almost by accident when his ship “Discovery” ran aground on a sand bar. According to his own journals on June 4, 1792, when he came ashore he found the first inhabitants “…helpful and nonthreatening.”
Marlin Fryberg Jr. The Tulalip Tribes are successors in interest to the Snohomish, Snoqualmie, Skykomish and other allied tribes and bands signatory to the 1855 Treaty of Point Elliott.
