The Edmonds-Woodway High School-based Students Saving Salmon group is scheduled to provide a report during the Tuesday, June 14 Edmonds City Council study meeting on its citizen science project, called the Edmonds Stream Team, to monitor water quality in the Edmonds Marsh, Shellabarger Creek, Willow Creek and Shell Creek.

For several months, the students have been collecting data monthly at 16 field sites,  creating informational materials and news articles, and making presentations at community meetings.

The council will also discuss three proposed changes to city ordinances, requested by the Edmonds Police Department, that would allow officers to cite drivers for inattentive driving, clarify language and penalties for misusing the 911 system, and require that animal bites be reported within 24 hours.

In addition, the council will discuss the following:

– A change order with Razz Construction, Inc. for the Fishing Pier Rehabilitation Project.

– Presentation on the Stormwater Code Update.

– Presentation of bid results for the 76th Avenue & 212th Street Intersection Improvements Project

– Presentation of a Supplemental Agreement with KPG for the 236th Street Southwest Walkway project.

– Whether to dissolving the Edmonds Library Board, as most of its functions are being provided by Friends of the Edmonds Library.

– Changes to the code governing the Citizens’ Tree Board.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. June 14 in the City Council Chambers, Public Safety Complex, 250 5th Ave. N. You can see the complete agenda here.
