Multiple Updates and Reports Slated for Council Study Session

The City Council will meet Thursday to discuss a number of important topics, starting with a report from the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Commission on its first year.

Also on the agenda are updates from staff on the Main Street Revitalization project, city finances and code enforcement.

The Main Street project is in Phase II, which focuses on a stretch of 56th Avenue W in the Town Center. Design documents are expected to be completed by the end of April 2022. 

Phase I resulted in the reconstruction of 236th Street SW from 56th Avenue W to I-5. Phase II includes similar improvements, such as wider sidewalks, bicycle lanes, curbs that meet ADA guidelines, and underground utilities. The Council will learn more about a proposed contract amendment.

Afterward, both the Finance Department and the Police Department are scheduled to present their third-quarter reports.

While the full financial impacts of the pandemic are still unknown, the city remains on target in providing cost-effective services, programs and projects.

The Police Department’s report will take a closer look at code enforcement. Department leaders will talk about current efforts to find more efficient ways to address violations and nuisances.

Thursday’s 7 p.m. meeting is a work/study session, with no action scheduled. To listen via telephone, call 1-253-215-8782.
