]-- 8 - Mukilteo Beacon - June 21, 2006 Residents may not know that the Mukflteo Police Department makes it easy to help protect your bike through their bicycle reg- istration ser- vices. Bike own- ers can sim- ply go to the police station to pick up a registration sheet, or call them and they'Ll mail it. To complete the registra- tion form, you will need some basic information like the bike's make, model and serial number (usually found along the main frame of the bike) and your own contact infor- mation. The only requirement? - that you live in the City of Mukilteo. In return for your registra- tion form, you get a sticker to place on your bike (usually placed under the seat in the seat stem) that helps po- lice track you down if the bike is ever lost or stolen. Police offi- cers often pick up abandoned bikes, but have no way to re- turn them to their owner. The free registration sys- tem helps the police help you. For more information or to request a registration form, call 425-353-8222. Library programs target youngsters The Mukilteo Library offers a variety of pro- grams for young people.
