Mukilteo voters approved an incorporation measure on April 29, 1947, and the official papers incorporating the community as a town of the fourth class were filed with the Washington Secretary of State on May 8, 1947. In the same election, Alfred Tunem (1896-1972) was chosen as the town’s first mayor; he served until 1956. Mukilteo became a code city in 1970 when it adopted the state municipal code.
At the May 1 City Council meeting, Mayor Jennifer Gregerson will read a special proclamation honoring this special 70th birthday of our City.
