Arlington adds new staff


The city of Arlington has hired Heather Logan as assistant city administrator. She will direct human resources, communications, IT and recreation. Most recently, Logan was assistant administrator at Cascade Valley Hospital and Clinics and has 22 years of operations experience and an MBA from City University of Seattle.

The Arlington Police Department has appointed Daniel Cone as deputy chief of police and promoted Rory Bolter to patrol sergeant.

The two were sworn in at the Aug. 1 City Council meeting.

Deputy Chief Cone is a lifelong resident of Arlington. He started as a patrol officer in 2000 and has worked his way up through the ranks.

Sergeant Bolter started his career in law enforcement at age 16, working as a volunteer canine agitator. He continued his career path in law enforcement with stints as a police dispatcher, reserve deputy sheriff and full-time deputy sheriff in Oregon.

He joined the Arlington Police Department in 2003 and has served as a patrol officer, detective, field training officer, Pro-ACT team member and narcotics detective with the Snohomish Regional Drug & Gang Task Force.

The city also announced the retirement of Officer Brian DeWitt, who spent over 40 years giving service to the public, beginning with the U.S. Air Force. After serving more than 15 years as a police officer and detective with police departments in the state of Minnesota, DeWitt and his family relocated to the Arlington Police Department in 1995. He served as field training officer, sergeant, lieutenant and commander.

At this week’s workshop meeting, council was scheduled to review the renewal of an inter-local agreement with the Snohomish Regional Drug & Gang Task Force through September 2017. The amount of $6,148 is slightly higher than last year ($4,848) because, according to documents, the term of the agreement changed from July-June to July-September.

The agreement allows participating jurisdictions to jointly coordinate selected law enforcement activities, resources and functions in order to disrupt illegal drug trafficking systems and to remove drug traffickers through a cooperative program of investigation, prosecution and asset forfeiture.

Fire department staff is requesting a resolution declaring its 1998 Spartan Fire Engine as surplus since new fire apparatus was placed into service in June. If council authorizes its sale on Aug. 15, proceeds will be deposited in the fire department’s portion of the city’s equipment replacement fund.

Also this Monday, a special presentation was scheduled by Angie Sievers, of the Master Builders Association.
