The Council members have about a month before their late-August recess, and shortly after they come back from that they put everything else aside to work on the 2019-2020 budget until mid-November. Expect a lot to be packed into the next month — and this week doesn’t disappoint.
The Council is back in session again this week, with a full week of regular meetings.
There will be fireworks in Seattle this week, but for once they won’t be in City Hall. The Council has cancelled all of its regularly-scheduled meetings this coming week, several of which will be rescheduled for the last week in July. There still may be some announcements, especially from the Mayor’s Office, but no new legislation, nothing moving out of committee, and no final votes on pending bills.
It’s going to be a light week here at SCC Insight too, since there won’t be much to write about.
Enjoy the Independence Day holiday!
It’s going to be a fairly light week for the Council, with a couple of special meetings for good measure.
Here’s what’s on the agenda this week for the City Council.
There is a lot going on this week: the Education Levy, the City Light Strategic Plan, budget updates, and more.
It’s going to be a busy week for the Council, with plenty of committee meetings, plus MHA and Education Levy work.
This is an unusual “fifth week” for the Council; half of its standing committees meet the first and third week of the month, and the other half meet the second and fourth weeks, so no there are no regularly scheduled committee meetings this week. There are, however, public hearings and meetings for select committees. Also, because of the Memorial Day holiday, the regular Monday meetings are shifted to Tuesday.
With the head tax vote behind them, expect a calmer week in City Hall — and a shorter one as everyone prepares for Memorial Day weekend. But there will still be fireworks, as a resolution to kick off the Waterfront LID process comes up for a vote Monday afternoon.
It will be another busy week for the Council, starting with more head tax drama on Monday afternoon.
