This week in Council Chambers

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday filled with family, friends, and food.

Here’s what the Council is up to this week.

Monday morning’s Council Briefing has no special presentations this week, though there will be an executive session with the City Attorney’s Office to discuss pending litigation.

Monday afternoon’s full City Council meeting has one agenda item: a resolution opposing the Trump administration’s change to the “public charge” rule as applied to permanent residency applications.

This week’s Introduction and Referral Calendar includes:

  • approval of a permit for OVG to construct and maintain a tunnel under Thomas Street as part of the Key Arena renovation;
  • several appointments to the Seattle Music Commission;
  •  several appointments to the Seattle Immigrant and Refugee Commission.
