Mayor Ferrell to deliver State of the City address Jan. 22

For the first time, the event is free and open to the public.

Federal Way Mayor Jim Ferrell will give his annual State of the City address at 4 p.m. Monday, Jan. 22, at the Federal Way Performing Arts and Event Center, 31510 Pete von Reichbauer Way S.

“For the first time in history it is going to open to the public and free to the public,” Ferrell said during the City Council meeting on Tuesday night.

In previous years, the address has been given at the Twin Lakes Golf and Country Club during the Greater Federal Way Chamber of Commerce’s membership luncheon.

“I have been thinking for several years that we really need to open it up to the entire community at no charge, and that is what we are doing this year at our beautiful, new Performing Arts and Event Center,” Ferrell said.

The event will include performances by three high school groups, and local organizations and city departments will have informational booths there.

A reception will follow the address in the lobby of the PAEC.
