Lynnwood City Council to receive RFA transition briefing Tuesday


The Lynnwood City Council will meet again on Tuesday, Sept. 5 after its two-week summer hiatus.

During Tuesday’s work session, the City Council will receive a briefing on the transition plan during the creation of the new South Snohomish County Fire and Rescue Regional Fire Authority (RFA). The RFA will combine resources from Fire District 1 and Lynnwood Fire. The measure was passed by voters during the August primary.

According to the agenda item posted on the City of Lynnwood’s website:

The RFA Plan outlines all of the areas of the responsibility the two agencies must complete to form the new RFA. Several agreements between the City and the RFA are needed to govern this transition including:

  • Transition Interlocal Agreement
  • Quitclaim deeds for Station #15 & Station #14
  • Station 15 Use Agreement
  • Assignment Agreement for Contracts
  • Assignment Agreement for Interlocal Agreements
  • Fire Marshal Services Agreement

Also on Tuesday’s agenda:

  • The Lynnwood City Council will review the creation of an option to issue a civil infraction for a code violation. Currently, the only option for enforcing code violations is a criminal citation. This will be reviewed on Sept. 5 and council will vote on the issue on Sept. 11.
  • Council will review increasing the jail contract housing fee for cities outside Lynnwood that use the Lynnwood jail.
  • Review an amendment for theĀ Interlocal Agreement for the Snohomish County Regional Drug and Gang Task Force.
