The Edmonds City Council is scheduled to take public testimony Tuesday night on who should receive the contract to provide City of Edmonds attorney services, with the choice coming down to current City Attorney Scott Snyder of Ogden Murphy Wallace, and the Lighthouse Law Group.
At last week’s meeting, the council narrowed the list of possible city attorney candidates from four to two. Some citizens feel strongly that the city should hire a new attorney, while others have praised Snyder’s experience and history in the job, so expect Tuesday night’s meeting to be well-attended. The council is scheduled to make a final decision on Feb. 22.
The following items are also on the council agenda:
– Acceptance of an award from the U.S. EPA ENERGY STAR program in recognition of the energy-efficient operation of City Hall.
– A public hearing on reconsideration of an ordinance amending home occupations under the Edmonds Community Development Code.
– Approval of an ordinance authorizing the refinancing of city bonds.
-Confirmation of Mayor Mike Cooper’s appointment of Olbrechts & Associates PLLC as the City’s Hearing Examiner and approval of the proposed professional services contract.
