Budget Season is Underway in Normandy Park

The 2023-2024 budget season is here. By the end of 2022, the City Council will need to adopt the city’s biennial (two-year) budget.  This document is probably the city’s most important work product, and it serves several functions. It allocates resources among departments, reflecting the City Council’s priorities and policies, and controls how much each department may spend. An important element of creating a successful budget is to include the opportunity for public input. Normandy Park has created a Citizen Budget Advisory Group to accomplish this goal.

This advisory group will review and comment on an early draft of the 2023-24 budget with City Finance Director Brenda Rolph and me. Input received during our meetings will help us develop the proposed budget that will be presented to the City Council.  This is a small group of volunteers, and we still have a few spots and meetings start next week. Interested citizens should contact Brenda by the close of business next week at brolph@normandyparkwa.gov. No budget experience is needed.

If you are not able to participate in the Citizen Budget Advisory Group, don’t worry. You can still participate and voice your opinion. As we develop the budget, you can participate in two public hearings before the budget is approved. Stay tuned to the weekly message for more information about the budget and future important meeting dates. We are looking forward to hearing from you as we develop the 2023-2024 Budget.

City Council Vacancy

There is still time to apply. The City of Normandy Park is seeking applicants to fill the vacancy of City Council Position #1. This temporary appointment will expire upon certification of the November 2023 General Election.

Normandy Park Entry Signs

Have you been wondering where the Normandy Park entry signs are lately? Well, wonder no more! They’re in the City Shop getting a fresh coat of wood stain so they can take on another season of pacific northwest weather. The refreshed wood signs will be back on display in the neighborhoods next week.

Bloodworks Northwest pop-up Clinic at City Hall – September 14th & 15th

In partnership with Bloodworks Northwest, the city is hosting another pop-up blood drive. The need for blood is constant and there is an emergency need for donors to book appointments in the weeks ahead to stabilize the blood supply. Please click this link to schedule your appointment. Thank you in advance for contributing to the community’s blood supply.

Weekly Report – September 30, 2022

As the temperature starts to cool and the leaves change color, we know the fall season is upon us. For local government, that also means budget season. Cities, counties, and certain special purpose districts in Washington State must adopt budgets on an annual or, in some cases, biennial (two-year) basis. The City of Normandy Park uses a biennial budget to strengthen our financial planning, and this document must be adopted by December 31 of every even-number year.

Weekly Report – September 16, 2022

On Tuesday, September 13th, the City Council had its regular monthly meeting. Here are the meeting highlights. Two proclamations were approved. We recognized Childhood Cancer Awareness and National Recovery Month. The City Council approved the first reading of an ordinance that will amend the Normandy Park Municipal Code to clarify the rules on dangerous dogs. Our new code will better conform to current State law and provide a straightforward procedure for appeals making our process more defensible. The second reading is scheduled for the October meeting.
The City Council approved an ordinance to align the city’s code with amended State law so the city can enforce order violations, including protection and no contact orders.
