  1. To MEN Where, how, and when did you get this list?

    • What does that mean?

      • Glenda, if you are asking about my comment above I was just trying to find out where the list came from. It is not on the city web site and based on the response from My Edmonds News and by the response of Ron Walmbolt elsewhere on My Edmonds News both parties got information from Council that was not made available to the general public.

        • Darrol – since both Ron and I received a copy I would imagine she would have provided a copy to anyone who requested it.
