Shoreline City Council Special Meeting Monday, July 19

Monday, July 19, 2010

The Shoreline City Council will meet Monday evening, 6:30 pm, July 19, in the council chamber at Shoreline City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N.

Council meetings alternate formal meetings with work/study sessions and this meeting is a "Special" aka work/study meeting.

The standard agenda has the formal opening, city manager Bob Olander's report, and brief remarks from council members. The approval of the agenda has been contentious in past councils, but seems peaceful with this council.

The Consent Agenda is a grouping of items which are either routine or have already been discussed extensively and agreed upon. Hence, this consent agenda includes formal approval for a motion to file a petition to Snohomish county about the terms they set for development of Point Wells.

The study items scheduled for this meeting (the links will allow you to download the staff reports):

a. Property Tax Ballot Measure: a discussion of whether to ask the citizens to raise their property taxes to maintain city services.
