City Council to consider changes in budget schedule, boards and commissions at Monday’s meeting

The Lynnwood City Council will be considering changes to the budget process and to some of the boards and commissions during Monday’s business meeting.

The Council likely will approve changes to the dates related to the preliminary budget, hearings and work sessions, and consideration of the budget by the Council, which would allow for the Biennial Budget to be adopted on or before the fourth Monday in November.

The Council also is considering a number of changes to the Planning Commission, Historical Commission and other boards and commissions.

The Community Development Department will brief the Council on its reorganizational plans and its desire to reestablish the Planning Manager and Permit Center Supervisor positions. The reorganization is being undertaken with no increase in funding for the department. It is entirely based on re-appropriation of current funding. The elimination of the “Deputy Director” position in Community Development yields sufficient funding to cover the cost of the re-organization.

The Council also will consider adopting a new state law – that establishes the offense of permitting or allowing the unlicensed practice of massage therapy or reflexology – by reference in the City Code that would allow the City to enforce the law by issuing citations, which would be prosecuted through the Lynnwood Municipal Court.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the Lynnwood Civic Center, Council Chambers, 19100 44th Ave. W., Lynnwood.
