Eliminating a federal lobbyist in Washington, D.C.? Deleting money to beef up sidewalk construction and street paving? Adding two new police officers for a drug task force, and a million dollars for the Edmonds Marsh?
The Edmonds City Council at its Dec. 4 business meeting will grapple with these and other proposals regarding Mayor Dave Earling’s 2019 draft city budget.
Also on the council agenda is a presentation on the city’s 2019 state legislative priorities, and — as part of the consent agenda — approval of eight appointments to the new City of Edmonds Youth Commission. (The council will meet at 6 p.m., prior to the regular meeting, to interview the youth commission candidates.)
The business meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers, Public Safety Complex, 250 5th Ave. N. You can see the complete meeting agenda here.
