Before the white settlement of Puget Sound, two Snoqualmie villages were located on the west side of the island. Mercer Island, named after the Mercer family from Seattle, was first settled in the 1870s and 1880s, and a denser urban and business district developed. The first large settlement in East Seattle was on the northwest side (McGilvara neighborhood), and before that on the west side. In 1884, the city of Mercer Island was founded as Merrimack Island (information required) and consists of four boroughs: Mercer, Mercer Park, East, West and West Mercer.
The city manages the town hall and the public works administration, while the Kingdom's sewage treatment plant, which owns and operates the collectors and sewers on the island, is responsible for the latter. The Office of Public Works operates from a building south of City Hall, with its headquarters in Mercer Park and its offices in West Mercer.
