The Edmonds City Council will hold two public hearings at its Tuesday, Dec. 1 business meeting — one on the proposed 2021-2026 capital improvements program/capital facilities plan and the other on an ordinance that established a four-month moratorium on subdivision applications that contain eight or more “significant” trees per 10,000 square feet of lot size. The council will also revisit a request by Mayor Mike Nelson for temporary authority to make rapid decisions aimed at helping local businesses weather COVID-19 impacts. That measure had been tabled last week after nearly all councilmembers expressed reservations that the mayor’s request — which covers nine areas of city code — was too broad.
Also on the council agenda for Dec. 1:
– Proposed modifications to the contingent loan agreement with the Edmonds Public Facilities District, which oversees operations for Edmonds Center for the Arts.
– Confirmation of two executive-level appointments recommended by Mayor Nelson — Whitney Rivera as Edmonds Municipal Court judge and Dave Turley as the city’s finance director.
– Continued deliberation on the proposed 2021 city budget.
