Lynnwood City Council to vote on revised dangerous animals code at Monday’s meeting

great dealThe Lynnwood City Council is scheduled to consider a revision on the dangerous animals code at Monday’s meeting.

The revision pertains to the Lynnwood Municipal Code dealing with Potentially Dangerous and Dangerous Animals. The previous code did not expressly permit the Animal Control Authority the power to declare an animal dangerous nor did it definitively describe the appeal process by which an owner would be notified of this declaration and was lacking in due process rights in how an owner could challenge the declaration.

The revised code details these issues as well as appoints the City of Lynnwood Hearing Examiner as the independent party to hear such appeals as opposed to the Patrol Commander. It also details burden of proof standards something the old code was mute on.

The Council also is scheduled to consider action on the Poplar Way Extension Bridge project, which will construct a bridge across I-5 to connect Poplar Way to 33rd Avenue West. The project is in the second phase of design. Additional design work, above and beyond the original project scope, will be required to comply with project requirements and will require a supplement of the Phase 2 design contract with the design engineer, Perteet Inc.

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