Vote on fire service likely tonight


The Edmonds City Council will hold what is likely to be its last public hearing on whether Edmonds should contract with Snohomish County Fire District 1 for fire service, selling all apparatus (engines, aid cars and equipment) while keeping the city’s fire stations and land and all emergency medical services transport fees. The meeting, held on a Monday rather than a Tuesday because tomorrow is election night, begins at 7 p.m. in the City Council chambers, 250 Fifth Ave. N., Public Safety Complex.

All background information, including a financial summary and agreement details, can be found here.

Also on the council agenda:

– A report from Community Transit on the Swift Bus Rapid Transit system, scheduled to begin running later this month.

– A proposal to enter into a funding agreement with the state’s General Administration Department for an energy-efficiency improvement project at the city’s wastewater treatment plant.

– A workshop on a proposal to transfer control of the city’s cable franchise agreement from Verizon Northwest, Inc. to Frontier Communications Corporation.
