This week’s Study Session has six items on the agenda. Before delving into the main focus of tonight’s meeting, Public Works and Community Development, the City Council will hear from the Finance Department. New Finance Director Jamie Thomas will present the city’s 2nd Quarter Financial Report to the council.
After Thomas’ presentation, the council will hear the five Public Works and Community Development discussion items. A capital projects status report will be presented, as well as the Facility Needs Assessment and Master Plan. The council will “hear an overview of an aesthetic bridge lighting concept underneath SR-18, at Auburn Way South,” states the study session agenda.
The Council will continue their discussion of Resolution 5454 and Ordinance 6732, which regard House Bill 1406. This will discuss how, if at all, Auburn will “utilize the provisions of HB 1406 that will capture a portion of State Sales Tax if directed towards affordable housing objectives,” according to the study session agenda.
The final presentation will be a Vision 2050 update from the Puget Sound Regional Council. Per the agenda, this will be an “overview of the Puget Sound Regional Council’s (PSRC) update from Vision 2040 to Vision 2050.”
After all of the presentations and study session business is complete, the Council will move on to its plan for future meetings. This portion of the meeting is called ‘the Matrix,” where they choose to add or remove items from the agendas of future study sessions. Once the Matrix is set, the meeting is adjourned.
