Regional Fire Authority annexation, Lighthouse Law Group contract among items before city council committees July 11

Several key items are on the agenda as members of the Edmonds City Council meet virtually in committtees Tuesday, July 11, starting at 3:30 p.m.

Council committee meetings are work sessions for councilmembers and staff with no votes or public comment taken. Committee members often decide, however, after reviewing an issue either to forward it to the full council for further discussion or to place it on the council’s consent agenda for a vote.

Only two of the three committees will be meeting Tuesday; the finance committee meeting is canceled. Topics to be discussed during the other two meetings include a resolution that starts the process of considering annexation of the City of Edmonds into the South Snohomish County Regional Fire Authority; a 2024 contract with the Lighthouse Law Group to replace the one expiring at the end of 2023 and an ordinance that would decrease the speed limit on the Edmonds’ portion of Highway 99 from 45 mph to 40 mph.

Here are the agendas:
