Who should be the next city attorney for Edmonds? It’s a topic that has many folks in Edmonds talking, and it will be a focal point of Tuesday night’s Edmonds City Council meeting, starting at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers, 250 5th Ave. N.
Based on interviews of applicants a few weeks ago, the council has narrowed the field to two choices: the current firm, Odgen Murphy Wallace and their representative Scott Snyder, and the Lighthouse Law Group.
“Citizen Harry” Gatjens of My Edmonds News has been following this issue closely, and hosted a community coffee with the Lighthouse Law Group on Friday so that citizens could ask questions of the firm. A similar coffee is being held today, Monday, at 3 p.m. with Scott Snyder at Chanterelle Restaurant, 316 Main St.
Also on the Council agenda Tuesday night:
– An update from the 2010-11 Citizens Levy Committee
– Discussion regarding House Bill 1265, which relates to land use planning in unincorporated portions of urban growth areas.
In addition, at 6:45 p.m., before the regular meeting starts, the Council will meet with a candidate for the Edmonds Arts Commission.
