There was an agreement to continue advertising at SeaTac airport on a diorama. The airport gives us that “free” , ( other than your taxes paying for it). Of course the idea that we pay taxes to the Port of Seattle in the first place is absurd. We are one of the few cities in the USA who pay taxes to a port authority. Usually it is the other way around. After all they makes Millions $$$ in profit for private businesses like airlines and shipping companies. As for the diorama, if any of you meet a person ,who flew across the country ,to come to Seattle and saw it at the airport ….and said, “gee” forget all the other reasons ( fill in the X), Let’s go to Normandy Park …let me know 🙂 ! Next!
Routine items included approval of a WRIA -9 (watershed), investigation interlocal agreement. This study is to determine how much water can be pumped from private wells so as not to affect the Green River. Done …next.
Lastly , as hashed out at our previous workshop on the proposed new city center, we did vote with only one member opposed to demolish the old recreation building . As noted before this will save at least $50-60 grand a year on maintenance alone. It would have cost $ 1.5 million to actually partially renovate it. Done…you see a short report.
