The Edmonds City Council at its Tuesday, Dec. 19 meeting is scheduled to further consider two items discussed during last week’s Public Safety-Planning-Human Services-Personnel Committee meeting: How to fund a police department request to purchase upgraded Tasers and whether to adopt a policy aimed at giving the council more control over filling vacant jobs.
The council will also discuss a resolution authorizing the use of general fund operating reserves for 2024 general fund expenses, which may pave the way for approval of the 2024 budget.
And the council will honor outgoing Councilmember Diane Buckshnis for her 14 years of council service.
In addition, the council will receive the draft 2024 Edmonds Legislative Agenda.
