The Edmonds City Council will hold what is likely to be its last public hearing on whether Edmonds should contract with Snohomish County Fire District 1 for fire service, selling all apparatus (engines, aid cars and equipment) while keeping the city’s fire stations and land and all emergency medical services transport fees. The meeting, held on a Monday rather than a Tuesday because tomorrow is election night, begins at 7 p.m. in the City Council chambers, 250 Fifth Ave. N., Public Safety Complex.

All background information, including a financial summary and agreement details, can be found here.

Also on the council agenda:

– A report from Community Transit on the Swift Bus Rapid Transit system, scheduled to begin running later this month.

– A proposal to enter into a funding agreement with the state’s General Administration Department for an energy-efficiency improvement project at the city’s wastewater treatment plant.

– A workshop on a proposal to transfer control of the city’s cable franchise agreement from Verizon Northwest, Inc. to Frontier Communications Corporation.
