Sewer Lift Station No. 16 is a new lift station. Its construction is necessary in order to divert flow from existing Lift Station No. 10. The flow lines between 196th Street SW and Lift Station No. 10 are currently at capacity during major flow events.

The Council will consider a proposal from the Police Department to amend the Lynnwood Municipal Code to allow current Reserve Police Officers to be compensated in accordance with the current Lynnwood Police Officers Guild Contract. These officers are fully qualified police officers with several being full-time officers who left the department for business opportunities or family concerns.
