Lynnwood City Council to meet at 6:30 p.m. for Monday’s work session

great dealThe Lynnwood City Council will be meeting at 6:30 p.m., half an hour earlier, for its Monday work session.

Former Lynnwood Finance Director Mike Bailey will be leading a discussion on how to better understand property taxes and how much money the City receives from it. The City receives 21.7 cents from every dollar of property tax collected, while the majority, 64.3 cents goes to the Edmonds School District.

Premier Golf Centers, who is managing the Lynnwood Municipal Golf Course, will present its 2014 annual report.

Nancy Finch, General Manager of the Hampton Inn and Suites, will be interviewed for a position on the Tourism Advisory Committee/Lodging Tax Advisory Committee.

The Council also will hear from City staff on whether the City should adopt an Essential Public Facilities Ordinance as required by the Growth Management Act. Last fall staff became aware that Lynnwood City Code’s provisions for dealing with Essential Public Facilities (EPF) were inadequate and possibly non-compliant with the State Growth Management Act. The issue was discussed at a City Council work session and elected to pursue adoption of a comprehensive EPF code.

Updates from Council Liaisons about their boards and commissions also are scheduled.

The meeting will be in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 19100 44th Ave. W., Lynnwood.
