Regional and City Council Committees Appointments

At its meeting on Tuesday, January 11th, the City Council will appoint members to serve on various regional and city council committees. I wanted to take this opportunity to give you more insight into these groups and the work they perform.

Regional committees are area groups that focus on a variety of topics that impact the citizens of Normandy Park. In many cases, the city has entered into an interlocal agreement that defines the scope of the committee. At Tuesday’s meeting, the City Council will appoint a representative and alternate to the following regional committees:

  • Highline Forum
  • Metro Solid Waste Management Advisory Committee (MSWMAC)
  • Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC)
  • Sound Cities Association Public Issues Committee (SCA PIC)
  • South King County Transportation Board (SCATBd) –
  • South King Housing and Homelessness Partners (SKKHHP)
  • Southside Alliance
  • WRIA 9

In addition to the regional committees, the City Council will select members to serve on the City Council Committees. These committees consist of three council members who meet to assist in the policymaking process. Council Committees are policy review and discussion arms of the city council that have been created to assist in examining issues that may come before it in greater depth and detail. Committees do not take binding action on behalf of the city, rather they study issues and develop recommendations for consideration by the city council. The current City Council Committees are:

  • Economic Development – This committee provides advice and recommendations on priorities, policies, and strategies related to the city’s basic economic health.
  • Finance – This committee discusses and reviews proposed financial policies, budgetary issues, debt, internal/external audits, proposed legislation, city code, and other finance-related matters.
  • Communications – This committee is responsible for assisting in the city’s communication efforts. This includes the City Scene Publication, Channel 21, YouTube channel, website, email campaigns, and other communications directed by the City Council.
  • Education – This committee provides the City Council with advice, guidance, and recommendations regarding various educational activities, associations, endeavors, programs, and ideas that can affect the lives of Normandy Park residents of all ages.
  • COPS (Public Safety) – This committee discusses law enforcement topics that may be impacting us locally or on a regional basis.  It is also an opportunity to review trends and how the Police Department intends to address them.
  • City Manager – This committee assists with employment matters related to the City Manager.
  • Capital Campaign (Civic Center) – This committee is responsible for launching the fundraising efforts needed for the proposed Civic Center Project.
  • Facilities (Civic Center) – This committee is responsible for the development of the design and uses of the proposed civic center.
  • Capital (Civic Center) – This committee is responsible for determining funding availability related to the civic center.

All the Council Committee meetings are open to the public and the City Council encourages your participation. Please watch the current events calendar for meeting times and join the discussion if interested. Also, keep an eye out for an announcement about future meetings being televised on Channel 21 and the city’s YouTube channel.

How much time have residents of Normandy Park spent working in the last 12 months? The U.S. Census measures work status in the past 12 months by collecting data on how many weeks out of the year and how many hours per week people spent working.
