Arlington City Council proclaims Friends of the Library Week

At this Monday’s city council meeting, Oct. 16, Arlington City Council was scheduled to approve appointments to the youth council and a right-of-way acquisition on 188th Street for widening the street.

Applicants included last year’s council members Alec Villa, Cole Cramer and Olivia Walker and three new ones, Grace Williams, Aryana Ahlen and Victoria Wilde. The youth council was established in 2016 to give youth a voice in city government for community revitalization.

The agenda included a proclamation of Friends of the Library Week this week, Oct. 15 - 20.

Also on the consent agenda, council was expected to approve an amendment to an inter-local agreement with Snohomish County Regional Training Group to include the Stillaguamish Tribal Police Department, and an amendment to a right-of-way procedure defined by Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) to include City Attorney Steve Peiffle as city staff.

Under new business, council was expected to vote on payment for a new pump at the water treatment plant that was planned for next year, but Public Works has the money to get it done this year at the same price as the second pump being installed this year.

A proposed supplement to a contract with Reid Middleton was on the agenda for additional engineering and design services for the Arlington Valley Road project, due to a realignment of 74th Avenue NE and a revised right-of-way dedicated by Vern Rengen so that it can be incorporated into the Arlington Valley Road project. Construction of the new road through the city’s industrial area is projected to begin in early 2018.

Council was also scheduled to vote this week on an update to the city’s Transportation 2035 Plan to bring it in alignment with the city’s Comprehensive Plan. The update was approved by the Arlington Planning Commission and received concurrence from Puget Sound Regional Council.

At the Oct. 9 council workshop a new human resources director, James Tefrey, was introduced.
