Edmonds City Council to meet a day early — Monday, not Tuesday


Since Tuesday is Election Day, the Edmonds City Council will meet a day earlier than usual — on Monday, rather than Tuesday.

The council will meet in executive session starting at 5:15 p.m. regarding potential litigation. The council may take action as a result of the executive session meeting, according to the agenda sent by the city Friday.

  1. Not yet, I was on the original list that took the survey and was promised a full report in exchange for participating. Nothing happened automatically so I emailed MP asking for the results several weeks ago but still not response. I did get another request for MP about joining some on line professional group but did not respond. I know MEN tried to get more details from MP but is is not likely the MP gave them the MEN either.
