  1. I did not go to the compensation meeting, but I have a novel concept. Let’s pay our council members based on a contingency fee – much like the rest of us consultants get paid. Pay minimum wage for the hours they work, then send out a survey, and based on their success in saving money, moving all of Edmonds forward, and getting legislation passed, we pay them a bonus. Success fees are always a good motivator to getting rid of gridlock.

    Personally, I am amazed Edmonds has been able to keep Mr. Earling this long, so keep paying him what it takes…Council on the other hand…
