Normandy Park City Manager’s Report for week ending Jan. 13, 2023

City Council Meeting Roundup
On Tuesday, January 10th, the City Council had its regular monthly meeting. Here are the meeting highlights.

    • The City Council made two appointments to the Art Commission. The Art Commission represents the City’s interest in art matters and serves as a spokespersons group for art matters. The residents appointed to serve were Nadia Counter and Paul De Barros.
    • The City Council approved three interlocal agreements. For background, Washington’s Interlocal Cooperation Act, chapter 39.34 RCW, allows the City to contract with other public agencies via interlocal agreements to perform governmental activities and deliver public services. This interlocal cooperation is valuable since it can reduce duplication, offer economies of scale, and generally improve governmental efficiency. The three agreements that were approved Tuesday include agreements with the:
      • City of Burien for Building Official Services.
      • City of SeaTac for Electrical Plan Review and Inspection Services.
      • City of Des Moines to provide Normandy Park Seniors with Senior Services.
    • The City Council discussed the upcoming retreat on Saturday, January 28th. This meeting is open to the public, so residents are welcome to attend.

To help the City better understand the “why” behind your vote on Proposition #1, whether you supported or opposed it, we are asking residents to take a survey on this issue.
