Council, Planning Commission to hold Jan. 5 workshop meeting


At the first meeting of the year, on Tuesday, Jan. 3, because of the New Year holiday on Monday, Arlington City Council was scheduled to reappoint Darrington Mayor Dan Rankin to represent all small cities in north Snohomish County on the Snohomish Health District Board of Directors.

Also on the agenda this week, council was expected to approve designating its City Clerk position to include duties of a Public Records Officer. The resolution includes making the deputy city clerk or designee to serve in that capacity if the clerk is unavailable.

This week, council will meet with the Arlington Planning Commission on Thursday, Jan. 5, for a workshop meeting that includes a general conversation between council and the volunteer commissioners, and a review of two new developments.
