Meeting Highlights: 

  • Pete Palmer, Planning Director, discusses a grant application for water banking. Commissioner Branch says he thinks the county should hire a Water Resources Manager to handle water banking instead of using someone in the Planning Department. Palmer also discusses plans for the continued re-zone hearing that’s scheduled for the Argiplex that evening.

  • The Sheriff’s Office is applying for a Fire Arms Safety and Violence Prevention grant. The grant includes funding to hire a core outreach specialist to serve as a co-responder and develop a collaborative relationship between the Sheriff’s Office, fire fighters and EMTs. Commissioner Branch thinks hiring the right person for this job will be the key to its success.

  • The commissioners hold a 30 minute executive session, under RCW 42.30.110(1)(i)—to discuss potential litigation, inviting Esther Milner, Chief Civil Deputy Prosecutor.

  • Meeting adjourns at 2:05.
