Scott left eh city on Friday, January 17 after a farewell from co-workers. While she won't miss the increasing complexity of processing public records requests" she will miss the staff and the friends she has made within the city over the last 31 years. 
I will miss the enjoyment of working together with City staff and interaction with the wonderful Lake Stevens community.  Lake Stevens will always hold a special place in my heart," she said.

The staff hopes for the best for Scott as she enjoys her days as a retired citizen.

"Norma has spent 31 years serving the citizens of Lake Stevens, she will be truly missed," Lake Stevens City Administrator Jan Berg said.
