On City Council Agenda tonight: Fire services, transportation, chickens


The Edmonds City Council will tackle a meaty agenda tonight – in more ways than one.

The council will hold a public hearing and then vote on a preferred scenario for City of Edmonds fire services, based on current budget forecasts; will discuss a 2009 City Transportation Plan that prioritizes pedestrian and non-motorized projects, and will also consider a proposal — in the spirit of encouraging people to grow their own food — to allow homeowners to keep up to three female chickens on their property.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m., preceded by a 6:30 p.m. reception for finalists for the City Finance Director job (an important position given the city’s current budget challenges). The full council agenda can be found here.
