It's a busy night for the Shoreline City Council on Monday, December 11, 2017.

At 5pm the Council is holding a dinner meeting with representatives from the Council of Neighborhoods.

At 6pm there is a reception to honor retiring councilmember, Deputy Mayor Shari Winstead.

The regular council meeting begins at 7pm.

There is a long consent agenda. However, consent agendas are items that have already been studied, discussed, and lack controversy. The entire agenda is passed in one motion.

The only action item on the agenda is the vote on whether to impose a $20 fee on license tabs. The money would provide a stable source of funding for the "Transportation Infrastructure of the City of Shoreline, Including Funding for Sidewalk Repairs and Retrofits."

The one page staff report is here. Existing sidewalks would be repaired and brought to ADA (Americans with Disabilities) standards.

The meeting will end with a discussion about Verizon's request to install fibre optic cable in Shoreline.

Verizon seeks to provide competitive local exchange (voice and data) services, internet access, private line services, and cell network front- and backhaul services to an existing cell phone tower.

Council meetings are held in the Council Chambers of City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N, 98133. Meetings can be watched live online, or from an archived copy after the meeting. Information here. Councilmembers can be contacted by email.
