Normandy Park City Manager’s Report for week ending Sept. 8, 2023

City Council Meeting on September 12th

The City Council holds a regular meeting on the second Tuesday of every month where they conduct all the business of the city. Meetings start at 7:00 p.m., and the public is welcome to attend.

On Tuesday, September 12th, the business being presented to the City Council includes:

  • Administering the Ceremonial Oath to Police Officer Garrett Strand.
  • Hearing a presentation from Mt. Rainer Pool.
  • Waste Management will present its Annual Report.
  • An Ordinance that will amend the Normandy Park Municipal Code Chapter 6.04, related to Animals at Large, will be presented for approval. If passed, it will help clarify and streamline our enforcement procedures.
  • Design and Construction Management Contract with G&O for the 2024 Storm and Sidewalk Projects. Approving this contract will ensure we are prepared for our 2024 projects.
  • An amendment to the Waste Management Contract. This amendment is being proposed to comply with King County’s rate restructuring related to solid waste.
  • Two proclamations will be presented for approval. The first would recognize September as National Recovery Month and the second would recognize September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
  • A contract for the services of an independent Finance Consultant will be presented. This contract will help the City identify potential improvements in our financial system and procedures.

For the City Council’s and the public’s benefit, staff prepares an agenda packet for each regular meeting. So, if you want to learn more about any of these items, use this link to review the packet. I hope to see you on Tuesday.
