Normandy Park City Manager’s Report for week ending Jan. 26, 2024
Police Department Staffing
On Tuesday, January 23rd, Officer Malcolm Lee graduated from the Police Academy after 4 ½ months. He will now move into Field Training for the next 14 weeks, and after successfully completing this program, he will be released on solo patrol. Malcolm is a U.S. Navy veteran whose work history includes a social services background. We are excited to get Malcolm back and closer to full staffing.
On the same day we welcomed Malcolm back, we said goodbye to our Records Manager, Jean Lindsey. After nearly 27 years with the Police Department, Jean has decided to retire to spend more time with family and take care of the farm (literally). Jean started in April 1997 and has witnessed numerous changes in the Department since then. Her dedication and professionalism will be missed. Zenna Crawford will continue the exemplary service Normandy Park residents have come to expect as the acting Records Manager.
King Conservation District (KCD) is holding an Election
KCD is holding an election for Seat #1 on the Board of Supervisors. The election is being held until February 13, 2024, and there are three candidates running for the position. The candidates are Brittney Bush Bollay, Aaron Ellig, and Erik Goheen. Candidate statements can be found at kingcd.org/elections.
The King Conservation District election will primarily rely on electronic ballot access for the fifth year. Ballots will be available to eligible voters online through the KCD website from January 23, 2024, at 8:00 AM through February 13, 2024, at 8:00 PM. Voters may return ballots electronically through the online ballot access system or contact KCD for assistance. Democracy Live operates the online ballot access portal, and King County Elections will tabulate all ballots and report all results.
I encourage you to take some time and vote in this election. KCD is a special purpose district committed to helping people engage in stewardship and conservation of natural resources, serving over two million people in 34 cities and unincorporated King County (excluding the cities of Enumclaw, Federal Way, Milton, Pacific, and Skykomish that are not member jurisdictions). KCD assists private residents with forestry management, streamside and shoreline enhancement, farm conservation planning, and other environmental efforts. It works with cities and community organizations to support community gardens, urban forest canopy, and local food systems.
Some additional information about KCD. The all-volunteer, five-member Board of Supervisors is responsible for overseeing KCD operations, budget, and policy. Voters elect three supervisors, and the Washington State Conservation Commission appoints two supervisors. Supervisors serve three-year terms. KCD is funded primarily by a per-parcel rates and charges fee paid by residents of the district. In addition, KCD has been a great partner for Normandy Park.
