Shoreline Council seeks volunteers for voter’s pamphlet SPU Acquisition pro and con committees

Thursday, July 26, 2012

At its July 23 meeting, the Shoreline City Council indicated that they intend to move forward with placing the acquisition of the Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) water system in Shoreline on the November 6, 2012, general election ballot. If approved, the City would acquire the water system in 2020.

Accompanying the ballots will be the King County Voter’s Pamphlet. The pamphlet will include an explanatory statement from the City that states the effect of SPU acquisition if approved. In response will be statements in support and opposition to the ballot measure. State law requires the City Council to appoint two committees to draft the pro and con statements. The committees can have no more than three members each; however, the committees may seek advice from any person or persons. The committees will also have an opportunity to write a rebuttal statement to the other side’s statement.

Individuals interested in applying for one of the committee positions should submit an application form to the Shoreline City Clerk no later than August 1. Applications can be found at the City website. The City Council will review the applications and appoint the committee members at its August 6 business meeting.
