Parks’ public process prompts business to pull out of seminary lease BY SARAH KEHOE

A real estate broker representing a private firm has abruptly decided to end its agreement with Washington

State Parks to lease the seminary building at Saint Edward State Park in Kenmore. The company had started negotiations for a lease that could have funded more than $40 million in renovations for

the crumbling building and lasted as long as a century. The parks department and the company had signed a nondisclosure agreement, a practice typical of private commercial real-estate deals.

Parks spokesperson Michael Hankinson said that the decision by Dan Mathews, an executive with broker KidderMathews, came as a shock. “The news is disappointing,” Hankinson said.

“It seemed the potential tenant had an interest in the preservation of the seminary building and was willing to fund its rehabilitation. A rare opportunity.” Representatives for Kidder-

Mathews did not respond to the Reporter’s request for comment. Parks spokesperson Virginia Painter said that state employees were committed [ more PARKS page 6 ]

Doctors caution, give advice on increase in flu cases and deaths BY SARAH KEHOE

The Washington State Health Department and local physicians reported seeing a dramatic influenza increase in the past three weeks. “We have seen multiple hospitalizations and even deaths,” said Dr. Francis Riedo, Medical Director of Infection Control at EvergreenHealth. “Most of the people we have treated are between the ages of 20 and 50 years old, which is unusual. It is usually the elderly we see getting ill.” Riedo confirmed three patients have died from the H1N1 virus during the past two weeks. All were between 30-50 years of age and not vaccinated. “We cannot say where

these patients are from or give out any names because that information is confidential,” Riedo said. Snohomish County’s first confirmed flu death of the 2013-14 season has been reported to the Snohomish Health District. A Bothell woman in her thirties died from influenza complications on Jan. 4. She had underlying health conditions and passed away in a King County hospital. “This next few months could be a rough start to 2014 for people who do not protect themselves from the flu,” said Nancy Furness, Director of Communicable Disease Division at Snohomish County’s local public health agency. Furness noted that seven county residents died from [ more FLU page 5 ]

Lazy Wheels Mobile Park in Bothell under fire for devaluing homes BY SARAH KEHOE

Brooke Mathers printed out flyers about holding a meeting for Lazy Wheels Mobile Home Park and walked to each one of her neighbors’ homes to invite them. “Many people here are suffering from the poor treatment by management and are afraid to talk about it,” Mathers said. “But I’m not. The owners are sick and tired of me, but I’m not going to sit around and do nothing.” Mathers and many Lazy Wheels residents say their manager is not addressing complaints and neglecting the park. Because of Mathers’ efforts, on Dec. 19, more than 90 tenants from five mobile home communities came together at the Bothell Library Community Room. Attendees were from mobile homes around the state, including Lazy Wheels, Canyon Park, Northwest Mobile Estates, Country Club and Lago de Plato in Everett. The majority of those in attendance reside in Legislative District 1. “I wanted to bring in not only residents from Lazy Wheels, but people from

all over that felt they were being mistreated or not properly taken care of by owners of their mobile park homes,” Mathers said. Leadership from the Dispute Resolution Program of the Washington State Attorney General’s Office addressed the home owners on the laws in place governing landlords and tenants. Present at the meeting were representatives from Manufactured/Mobile Home Owners of America (MHOA), Legislative Action Team Chair Judith White, serving the Manufactured/ Mobile Home Community on Legislative Issues, and Dan Young, attorney. “When I took a personal tour of the Community of Lazy Wheels, I nearly freaked out at the egress from the park at the east end directly onto Woodinville Drive,” White said. “It is together that we can make a difference in our communities for those who are facing challenging conditions in their communities such as consistent uniform practices, harassment/intimidation and landlords who are not following the Laws of the State of Washington. It is a two-way street and communication/cooperation and having a listening

ear can go a long way to building a strong relationship in our communities.” A few residents at Lazy Wheels came to the Reporter to voice their concerns and troubles occurring at the park and with the park manager but expressed a desire to remain anonymous because they were concerned for their safety. Mathers said park management “doesn’t take our complaints seriously.” The Reporter contacted the manager but she declined to comment. A friend of many residents and a coach to children at Lazy Wheels, Diana Ng, said she has seen the same issues in the park. “Many are not aware of their basic rights,” Ng said. “Not just immigrant families, fairly new to the community, also long time residents. Many manufactured housing communities have a long history of being a place of oppression due to mismanagement, neglect and abuse. Brooke is doing everyone a favor by persevering and bringing the problems she and other residents of Lazy Wheels to the attention of the public.” Ng said Mathers and others have tried many different ways to reach out

Lazy Wheels Mobile Park is located on Bothell Highway in Bothell near the Sammamish River Slough. SARAH KEHOE, Bothell Reporter for help. “We all have contacted the proper authorities; some who have helped and many who have not,” Ng said. “Brooke and the other residents have suffered enough. Now it’s time for that park to get cleaned up and for management to help unite residents, allow for community meetings and gatherings without manager interference or fear of punishment or retaliation. It’s time to get things right.” One of the Lazy Wheels’ owners, Linda Garcia, stood by her park manager, saying she is passionate about taking care of her residents. “[She] is extremely diligent,” Garcia said. “The trailer park is her life and she loves to help people. She bends over backwards to

help anyone who needs it and we feel so lucky to have her.” Mathers stated that rents are not consistent within the park and some residents are charged more than others for the same accommodations. Garcia said the discrepancy in some peoples’ rent is due to a recent state law raising rent each month and rent fees are decided upon how long a resident has been living in the park. “Many of our homes are filled with Hispanic families and we are happy to have them,” she said. “I feel many residents that are upset are upset because the park is simply different from what it use to be. Back in the 60’s there were senior citizens mainly living here and now

there are families, so the atmosphere is a bit different and it is not the way they remember it.” Mathers believes the owners have put the park up for sale and have not informed their residents of this decision. “I searched for ‘mobile home parks for sale’ with our zip code and state, it showed Lazy Wheels for sale on that page,” Mathers said. “I told tenants in our park about what I’d seen and two days later the Lazy Wheels listing was gone.” Garcia said the park is not for sale. “That is a rumor,” she said. “We enjoy our community of residents and work hard every day to keep our park looking great.” A few tenants complained about the state of vacant trailer homes in the park at the meeting. “Owners are not following the same rules and regulations tenants follow that owners put in the lease, owners are leaving evicted trailers filthy. Lots are in need of attention causing health and safety issues and are not up to regulation standards,” Mathers said. “Our potential mobile home buyers see these dirty or [ more WHEELS page 3 ]

evicted derelict trailers and then are not interested in our homes, so owners are blocking trailer sales of tenants here. I believe the owners are devaluing this park on purpose to create lower taxes.” Mathers said she and other residents have contacted the city of Bothell about the situation in Lazy Wheels park many times. “We are aware of situations going on in Lazy Wheels and I have already contacted the property manager to work on the issue of the vacant homes,” said Debbie Blessington, code enforcement officer at the city of Bothell. “These things take time to fix. I know if you are living somewhere and a home next to you is ugly, it can’t be fixed fast enough, but it is more complex than just telling them to make it look better. Conditions have to be pretty extreme for the government to step in, with a specific condition causing a safety hazard or nuisance in a broader sense.” Blessington mentioned Mathers’ other complaints about management is a legal issue, not a city issue. “Most of the issues mentioned by Brooke are civil issues that are a legal matter,” Blessington said. Blessington said there are many code violations occurring at the park. “Most have to do with the fact that residents have done construction and additions to their homes without permits,” she said. “Lazy Wheels is one of three mobile parks in the city we are hoping to address in a more global way instead of unit by unit.” Garcia said she has been looking into fixing up the vacant homes in the park. “It takes time,” she said.

“I care a great deal about this city and want to see it prosper.” In addition, honorable judges Marcine Anderson and Douglas Smith administered the oath of office to newly elected council member Nigel Herbig, position 4, and re-elected council members Laurie Sperry, position 2, and Allan VanNess, position 6. Council members are elected to serve four year terms. The meeting concluded with the city council recognizing outgoing Deputy Mayor Bob Hensel for his eight years of service to Ken-

“We have to decide if we will demolish a vacant home or bring someone in to fix problems with the home.” Garcia stated she has not received any maintenance requests from any residents in a while. “When we do receive any written complaints, we drop anything to solve it,” she said. “Although I must

point out that each resident is responsible for the care of their own homes, while we are responsible for the upkeep of the surrounding area of the property.” Mathers plans on having more meetings in the future. “We must get together and talk about what’s going on,” she said. “The only support we have is each other.”

The Kenmore City Council unanimously selected David Baker to serve a fourth term as mayor and Glenn Rogers to serve as deputy mayor, at its Jan. 6 meeting. The mayor and deputy mayor are selected from within the city council. The mayor presides at city council meetings and represents the city at various ceremonial functions and intergovernmental meetings. The deputy mayor presides at meetings when the mayor is absent. Both will serve a two-year

term in their appointed roles. “I love the city and I want to continue doing all I can do and finish what I’ve been doing for the city,” said Baker. “Because our city has been so active we’ve been successful in bringing revenue to the city that has helped with improving our roads.” Baker said he has several new goals for the city he hopes to accomplish during this term as mayor. “We are currently working on getting some dredging done so we can improve the water and I want to see us strengthen our ties with our neighbors,” he said.

NSD measure impacts entire community


ost people don’t pay attention to February elections. They are not as entertaining as a November general election. There are usually only one or two items on the ballot. A lot of times the ballot just gets lost in the shuffle of dayto-day life. But the future course of the Northshore School District is in the hands of voters on Feb. 11. Those residents have been good in the past about supporting the district’s needs and in return the district has been good about using tax dollars wisely. This new plan is no exception. Exponential growth in the north end of Bothell has led to overcrowding in local schools and the need for change. Voters will have to decide if they support a $177.5 million bond measure, mainly to build a new high school, along with an education maintenance and operations levy and a capital technology levy. The centerpiece is a new 250,000-square-foot high school to be built on the 61-acre property north and west of Fernwood Elementary School. The district purchased the land in 2012 and the new schools would accommodate 1,500-1,600 students. Construction would begin this spring with the school opening in fall of 2017. This year’s fifth-graders would attend freshman year at the new high school. But approval of the measure would mean changes for the entire district, including students in Kenmore and Woodinville. Some of the money raised, $17 million worth, would pay to finish the Woodinville High School renovation. The rest of the bond money would go toward various maintenance projects around the district, such as replacing old roofs and boilers. That money would directly benefit students in Kenmore. The district will have to undertake a grade level reconfiguration that would bring the district to a K-5 elementary, 6-8 middle and 9-12 high schools

alignment and implement associated boundary adjustments. Those changes can be tough for some families but is a good plan for the future of the district. The move follows many other school districts in the state that have made the change. Northshore and Puyallup are the only remaining large school districts in the state with the current K-6, 7-9 and 10-12 grade level configuration. But for most voters a yes or no vote comes down to dollars and cents - and not just sense. For taxpayers, the measures would replace the expiring bond and levies. A home valued at $400,000 in 2013 will pay an annual tax rate of $2,116. In 2014, that rate would increase by $20 with an expected home valuation increase of $28,000. During the course of the new measures, the tax rate would increase an average of $62.20 per year during the four years. That same $400,000 home in 2013 will increase in value to $481,718 in 2018. The tax rate is based on the value of the home. The rate per $1,000 of assessed value will actually decrease from $5.29 in 2013 to $4.95 in 2018. The economics, when taken in context with the overall benefits to the community, just make sense.

But this plan also makes sense from an education standpoint. Everyone knows that smaller class sizes benefit all students’ education. Educating students is not just an issue for parents. Providing a good basic education for the youth in the community benefits everyone. It leads to less crime, better workers, more entrepreneurs and smarter decisions in the future as a community. Many children in the community have grown up and chosen to stay in Northshore. They know how good the education system is and want the best for their kids. The Northshore community has shown its support for the school district throughout the years and the district has rewarded the community - not just students and parents. Many residents move to Bothell, Kenmore and Woodinville so their children can attend Northshore schools. That added incentive and competition in the real estate market drives up home values, which benefits every home owner. And while the sticker shock of a $177.5 million bond measure will deter some voters, the entire plan is a win-win for Northshore.

Support the Northshore School District I support the Northshore School District. As a former high school teacher and son of local teachers, I purposely chose to buy a house in the Northshore School District. The district has a long history of excellence, from its bond ratings to the fact that they have always worked carefully with their terrific teachers and have never gone on strike. I have a senior in the full International Baccalaureate program at Inglemoor High School who is applying to some of the top schools on the west coast and have seen firsthand how she got this far. My eighth grade son is hopefully following in her footsteps. One of the key issues in a strong community has to be the willingness to support reasonable taxes that support our parks, our libraries, our emergency response units and our schools. As our area has grown and thrived, we have needed at times to re-evaluate what is needed. Not too many years ago, the district had to even consider closing a school due to a decline in enrollment. Enrollment is now booming on the north side of the district, as the far west side and east side have faced some enrollment declines. After dozens of meetings and discussions with the whole community the district has decided the best way forward

is to build a new high school in the north side. The district is also aligning its grade levels at the schools to more closely match the neighboring districts and expectations of most colleges. The new high school helps with this process. The Northshore School District has a long history of doing what it has promised in regard to bonds and levies and they have done it in an open and public fashion. They have provided enough reasonable documentation and evidence through their finance department to the community and the bond underwriters that I am comfortable with their worst case scenario of an additional $60 per household. I am comfortable that Superintendent Larry Francois and the diverse school board have done proper planning for the best interests of our community. I have worked closely with them as a former president of the Northshore Schools Foundation, in PTA, as a local businessman with Snapdoodle Toys, and as most importantly, a parent.

Kenmore snuffs out brilliant ideas We have lived happily in Kenmore since 1998. We chose Kenmore as an excellent place to raise our children in a safe environment with wonder-

ful schools. We have wonderful neighbors and friends and yet the city never fails to disappoint us. We were so excited with the progress of the Lake Pointe project years ago, with a boardwalk on the lake, shops, restaurants and a movie theater. The project was stalled and then died because a few people were worried about an increase in traffic. The downtown redevelopment project has been a bit of a disappointment as well. The most recent and maybe the greatest disappointment is the fate of the seminary building at Saint Edward State Park. We were delighted when we heard that McMenamins wanted to refurbish and convert the building into a hotel and restaurant, open to the public and fitting for a park. Take Paradise Inn at Mount Rainier or Quinault Lodge, which enhance and not diminish the outdoor experience. A public hotel, with a public lobby, restrooms and a restaurant, would attract more visitors to the park and improve the quality of the visits for most people. A cybersecurity office that I assume will not be open to the public is the coldest, most bland use I can imagine. Kenmore has a talent for nurturing the bland ideas while snuffing out the brilliant ones in their infancy. It might be wise to let Bothell or Kirkland annex us. It would be nice to have an inn in the park.

influenza-related illness in 2013. There is no indication that the Bothell woman is among those who died at EvergreenHealth. King County Public Health also reports infections are on the rise locally, as seasonal influenza has gone from barely detectable levels in early December to widespread in King County. “We urge everyone to get vaccinated as soon as possible as this is the best way to avoid getting sick,” Riedo said. “And if you do get sick, stay home from work or school to avoid spreading influenza.” The flu vaccine is in plentiful supply and it’s not too late to get vaccinated to reduce your chances of getting the flu. Influenza activity generally peaks in January or later in our region and continues circulating until spring. Another important line of protection is antiviral drugs, especially for people with severe influenza or at high risk of complications. Antiviral treatment should be started promptly if you are pregnant or in a highrisk group and develop flu symptoms, including fever, cough, sore throat and muscle aches. The predominant strain circulating currently is influenza A H1N1, which happens to be the same one that led to the 2009 flu pandemic. This virus causes infections and severe illness in all ages, but compared to other influenza strains, it causes higher rates of illness and death among young and middle-age adults, including those with no underlying health conditions. Pregnant women should get vaccinated at any stage of pregnancy. The flu vaccine is both safe and effective for pregnant women, including during the first trimester. Vaccinating during pregnancy protects not only the mother but the fetus and child as well. Newborn infants can’t be vaccinated until they’re six months old, according to the health department. Anyone who lives with or cares for an infant younger than six months should also get vaccinated

to protect the infant from getting flu. Other members of the community at increased risk for severe influenza include the elderly and people who have longterm health problems, like diabetes, asthma, and heart or lung problems.

The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 14, at the Northshore Utility District, located at 6830 N.E. 185th St. in Kenmore. The meeting was to include a discussion of the potential lease. “The potential opportunity that was being discussed is no longer active, but that does not mean we stop talking about a solution for this significant historic building,”

said Washington State Parks Director Don Hoch. “We had intended to start a process with the public to explore the future of the structure, and we intend to continue in that process with the public.” Hoch said that any partnership or long-term lease agreement proposals that may surface will go through appropriate planning, permitting, environmental review and public involvement before any decisions are made. “We have a stewardship responsibility here, and we’re committed to exploring any partnership proposals that may help us preserve this building as part of our state’s historic legacy,” Hoch said. Tom Fitzpatrick, member of the Friends of Saint Edward State Park, said he considers the news of the business pulling out of their agreement with the parks department to be both good and bad news. “Many people thought

that the agreement with this private business was being rushed, so I think it’s good news that now everyone has more time to think about things before decisions have to be made,” he said. “But the bad news is that this was an opportunity to do something about the building that we now might not get again anytime soon.” Saint Edward Seminary stands as an iconic feature of the 316-acre park on Lake Washington. Constructed in 1931 as a Catholic Seminary, the building is brick and cast stone and features Late Romanesque Revival Style architecture. It has 80,000 square feet and includes a bell tower, study hall, library, chapel, classrooms, dormitories and kitchen.

The Saint Edward Seminary is was built in 1930 and its state is up for discussion among the city. SARAH KEHOE, Bothell/Kenmore Reporter Status of the building has long been of interest to the public and to historic preservation, political and community leaders. This past summer, a diverse group of interested parties met with the parks director and commission members to reinvigorate the discussion about finding financial support to preserve the structure. In November, the commis-

sion adopted a resolution directing staff to explore partnerships that could help with that goal. “A lot of us feel that state parks needs to get their act together because there seems like there’s been a lot of fumbling around on their end,” Fitzpatrick said.

to being transparent with process from the beginning of the discussions. “What happened was that one of our staff members signed the disclosure petition with the real estate company when they actually had no authority to do that,” Painter said. “As all this was moving forward, we were concerned. We are a public entity and decided it was our duty to do everything properly.” Painter said that department employees went to the Washington State attorney general asking to receive the authority to release the documents concerning the agreement. The documents will be released to those who placed a public records request on Jan. 6. “We sent a courtesy letter to our potential investor to

It’s Blue Friday! Support Our Hawks! Pete Carroll’s jubilant celebrations victory over St. Louis in the regular-season finale. With the offense and defense posting strong outings, Carroll tallied 43 embraces. Wilson again led the way with four, followed closely by Sherman who got 3.5 — he shared a hug with fellow cornerback Byron Maxwell after a Maxwell interception. Sherman also got a hug after Tate’s fourth-quarter touchdown. The score ushered in a four-hug spree by Carroll. “It’s just having fun and

Go ‘Hawks! Poem T’was the night before playoffs and all through Seattle, the team is still sleeping, except for Pete Carroll. His lineup is ready, his coaches are too. Pete phones Russell Wilson, “You know what to do.” With visions of wins running through his head, The 12th man tosses and dreams in his bed. On Thomas, on Thurmond, on Unger and Wagner, On Baldwin, on Chancellor, on Hauschka and Irvin. On Kearse, Meband, Miller,

Okung, Sherman, Harvin and Tate…did we hear BOOM? Put in Lynch in a pinch and watch the Beast drive Watch Wilson throw, keeping said drive alive. While opponents tremble on Seahawk soil, unprepared for the fans and The Clink’s turmoil. While Wilson finds his man in the mob, any man will do a fine Seahawks’ job. T’was the night before playoffs and all through the land, The 12th man screamed loudly, Yes we can, yes we can, yes we can!

ete Carroll is known for his defensive prowess, his high energy level and a mantra of competition that keeps his players working hard. He’s also known for jubilant celebrations. The Seattle Seahawks head coach can routinely be seen hugging and rejoicing with his players after a big play, whether it’s on offense, defense or special teams. “When the head guy’s hugging you,” Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner said, “you did something right.” While on the field for Seattle’s final two regularseason games — from warmups through postgame handshakes — Carroll dished out more than 70 hugs to players, coaches, staff, even the officials. “All that energy that he brings every single game it’s kind of like another player out there on the field,” Wagner said. “It’s fun watching him if somebody gets a big play, him running around and being excited. We feed off of that.” By The Herald’s count, Carroll tallied 27 on-field hugs in Seattle’s 17-10 loss to Arizona on Dec. 22. It was the Seahawks’ first home defeat in 15 games at CenturyLink Field. With the Seahawks’ offense production down, so was Carroll’s hug count. The first hug out of the tunnel went to an Arizona player, the second to a microphone operator accompanying a TV cameraman (the mic operator clearly initiated the embrace) and the third to a Seahawks staffer. Hug No. 4 went to Paul Allen, after Carroll literally ran to the sideline to greet the Seahawks owner. Apparently the guy who signs the checks gets high hug priority. Other notable hugs included “Interception” hugs for defensive backs Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman, a “Let’s Walk and Talk” hug for line judge Mike Spanier, and Hug No. 13, a possible embrace with an assistant coach that may actually have been some kind of blocking drill. But there

was definite arm motion and Carroll appeared to pull the coach in, so count it. “The guys in here act just like him. It’s crazy,” Chancellor said. “We need that type of energy. Doing the same thing over and over, every day, can get repetitive. It can get boring. But to people who love football, like us in here, and a coach that loves football so much, it means a lot. It brings a spark to this program.” Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson received the first of his game-high four Carroll hugs during a timeout on Seattle’s last possession of the first half. Soon after, kicker Steven Hauschka missed just his second fieldgoal attempt of the season and looked like he could use a hug. He didn’t get one. The Seattle players say they enjoy getting hugs from their 62-year-old coach. They know that if they make a big play, it’s likely Carroll will be waiting with open arms. “The good news is Pete is going to shower you with praises whenever needed,” Seattle wide receiver Golden Tate said. “If you mess up, he’s going to quickly let you know you messed up, but he’s not going to curse you out.” It’s no surprise that Carroll’s hug count rose significantly in Seattle’s next game, a 27-9, NFC West-clinching

enjoying the moment, really,” Carroll said. “That’s kind of what happens.” Carroll said he’s always been an excitable coach, and the outpouring of hugs is a reflection of his enthusiasm. “I’ve just been myself ... having fun with it and supporting guys,” Carroll said. “(I’m) trying to help them perform at their best. Sometimes it’s praising them and all that kind of stuff. That’s just been the way I do it. Not really by intent, that’s just the way it happened.”

The person I will be nominating is an experienced and positive leader who has been our partner in all of our accomplishments of the past eight years. Bothell would not be where we are today without the contributions of Joshua Freed.”

Freed was elected by a margin of 5-2. Councilwoman Tris Samberg nominated Councilman Andy Rheaume for mayor and the two were the only desenting votes in the process. “Joshua is a visionary who is passionate about Bothell’s future,” said Lamb. “Many in town know him as a successful businessman who was born and

I know that he is a caring and compassionate human being who regularly travels to some of the poorest parts of the world to bring love and hope to the disabled, the forgotten and the weak. His service in elected office is just that, a service to others. Josh has been an outstanding deputy mayor and he will be an even better mayor.” Along with Freed, the Bothell City Council unanimously elected Del Spivey as deputy mayor. Freed welcomed back Samberg who was sworn in. Samberg previously held the position 2 seat but vacated it in 2011 to run against Lamb and lost. She returned to politics last spring to run against Planning Commission member Steve Booth for position 5 in November. Former Councilman Patrick Ewing decided not to run for re-election to the position 5 seat last spring. Agnew, Spivey and Freed were all re-elected in November but ran unopposed. Agnew was unable to attend the meeting but joined by phone to participate in the voting process. “I am honored to be elected as the new Mayor for the city of Bothell,” Freed said. “Years of creative planning have gone into our downtown plan and I look forward to leading council through the implementation of this plan to create a new vibrant downtown.” Freed’s local government experience includes, but is not limited to, city of Bothell deputy mayor from 2010 thru 2013 and Bothell City Council member since 2006. He serves on the economic development, capital facilities and community outreach committees of the Bothell City Council, as well as the Eastside Transportation Partnership. “I appreciate the opportunity to be the mayor for the next two years and I look forward to helping the future of Bothell,” Freed said. “A lot of good planning has gone into it and we will be working on implementation over the next few years. It is an honor.” Spivey’s local government experience includes, but is not limited to, city of Bothell Council Member since 2006, He currently serves on he Economic Development and Public Safety Council Committees, as well as the Joint City and Fire District Advisory Board. • •
