Soliciting in Hunts Point
All solicitors visiting Hunts Point are required to obtain a solicitor's license through the Medina Police. Solicitors are not allowed to approach residences with “No Soliciting” signs and must leave immediately if asked to do so by the homeowner.  Campaign committee and workers as well as charitable, religious or nonprofit organizations are exempt from the solicitors permit requirementPlease report any suspicious activity by calling 911 immediately.
Clean-Up Day
Over the last two years, consistent with Governor Inslee’s COVID-19 pandemic plans, Hunts Point has chosen to donate funds budgeted for Clean Up Day to Wetherill Nature Preserve.  We have had a long relationship with the organization that maintains the Preserve, but these donations have given Hunts Point the chance to get more directly involved in supporting their important work. This has been a very positive experience and provides ongoing benefits to the community through the increased support of the Preserve.
This year, Hunts Point will be continuing the relationship and again donating Clean Up Day funds to Wetherill Nature Preserve. Additionally, with COVID-19 related restrictions lifting, our community will again have the chance to get together and help with clean-up efforts.
Wetherill Nature Preserve will be sending out an invitation to the community this Spring/Summer inviting Hunts Point residents to come and help maintain this amazing natural asset we all enjoy. I look forward to seeing you there.

A Primer On Property Taxes
The Town of Hunts Point has not increased the city’s property levy for several years. Unlike many cities in Washington, Hunts Point’s finances remain in good order, and the Council believes that diligent care in controlling costs and managing the Town's reserves despite the unknowns of the current economic climate will continue to protect these reserves. This chart depicts how your property-tax payment is split among the various taxing agencies, 60.21% of which is voter-approved.
If the Town did not increase the property-tax levy, why did my tax bill increase? You may see a tax increase for several reasons:
  1. Increases in the levy rates assessed by other taxing agencies, e.g. King County @ 17.0%.
  2. Increases due to voter-approved levies, e.g. Bellevue School District at 32.5% and EMS 911 @ 3.4%.
  3. Changes in the assessed value of your property relative to the total assessed value of property in Hunts Point.
Mercer Island Marine Patrol
The Town of Hunts Point contracts with Mercer Island Police Department's Marine Patrol Unit.
The City of Mercer Island has placed a priority on its marine patrol with full-time staffing. The unit is operated with a full-time Marine Patrol Supervisor, and a Marine Patrol Technician and 17 part-time/relief personnel, which enables the unit to have a 24-hour emergency response. If there are any boating related questions or concerns, please contact the Marine Patrol Unit at 206-275-7953. For all emergencies, call 9-1-1.
