Lots on Langley City Council’s plate Monday

The Langley City Council at 5:30 p.m. Monday, July 21, may be one for the record books considering the healthy list of agenda items.

It will, at a minimum, last one hour for a pair of 30-minute presentations about customer surveys and the Salish Sea. City leaders will also tackle an elevator proposal as a means to get from Cascade Avenue to the marina at South Whidbey Harbor.

Four items are on the unfinished business section. At a recent council meeting, Maralie Johnson asked the city to adjust her water bill because it was still being charged despite her house having burned down in May 2013. The council will also review a resolution objecting to coal trains passing through Western Washington, and having a council member join the Leadership Snohomish County program.

New business for the city includes revision of the disaster response committee ordinance, setting a date for the council’s budget planning workshop, and a six-year street plan to last from 2015 to 2020.

A couple of recognitions will happen early in the meeting. One is for the completion of Second Street, and the other is for the city’s wastewater treatment plant.

Two liquor licenses — The Braeburn and Useless Bay Wines — are up for review. And Langley is proclaiming the fourth Saturday of July as Island Shakespeare Festival Day, which will continue in perpetuity.
