The Edmonds City Council Tuesday night is scheduled to decide whether to approve an interlocal agreement with the Edmonds School District regarding the multi-use sports fields project at former Woodway High School.
The council was scheduled to vote at its July 22 meeting on whether to pursue an interlocal agreement under which the city would schedule, operate and maintain the artificial turf fields. But councilmembers agreed that they wanted more time to study all sides of the issue, which since spring has been generating community debate regarding possible health and environmental impacts of the tire crumb rubber infill.
Also included on Tuesday’s agenda:
— hearing an update from Community Transit.
— receiving the June 2015 Quarterly Financial Report.
— hearing a recommendation for the Municipal Court Judge salary.
— discussing next steps for operation of Boards and Commissions, including the Tree Board and the Diversity Commission.
— considering a resolution adopting the 2016-2021 Six-Year Transportation Improvement Program.
The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in Council Chambers, Public Safety Complex, 250 5th Ave. N. You can see the complete meeting agenda here.
