Michael Brunk

By Scott Schaefer
Founder/Publisher

Michael Brunk is one of the most impressive, creative and talented media professionals I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and working with. As we celebrate our 10th blog-iverssary, it is incumbent upon me to recognize the fact that if it were not for the generosity and talent of my esteemed colleague with the big lens and a gift for coding, South King Media would not be what it is. In fact, it most likely would not exist.

Blog readers might not recognize him if he walked past them at the grocery store, but they do know him from hundreds of his amazing photos that have graced the pages of our six South King Media websites over the past ten years.

And while most may know him as an amazing Photographer who has generously taught classes as a volunteer at the Burien Community Center, shot numerous theatrical productions and art events (check out his work at nwlens.com), we have the privilege to also know him as an incredible technical expert (aka our tech/code “god”). He has single-handedly built our websites from scratch using his vast expertise in WordPress, html, css, coding, servers, and much, much more, and our blogs wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for him.

Let me repeat that – our blogs would not be here if it wasn’t for Michael Brunk.

It would take way more than the constraints of this post to do Michael’s contributions and talents even a modicum of justice. Coding expert. WordPress expert. Basically anything that makes things work expert.

He has attended and shot dozens and dozens of events for us, most recently the 2017 Dia de los Muertos celebration.

He has an eye for shooting the most majestic, perfectly timed and framed photo. We call it, simply, “Brunksmanship“.

Michael Brunk is an amazing man, highly intelligent with a “keen sense of keenness in the quiet” as a friend of mine once described him. He is a “tenderfoot in the corner” as he shoots, performing his photographic genius.

This is deliberate on his part, because he knows never to “interject himself into the scene” as he shoots, or to distract his camera’s subjects for even a second.

In that mode he was at our 10th birthday bash on Monday night. So here – where I can’t screw up like I did then – I’d like to pay homage to his unique talents and graces.

Please enjoy this video, which showcases just some of Michael’s amazing contributions and talents – aka “Brunksmanship“!

If you enjoy the Blog, please join us in thanking the man who makes it work!

Thank You Michael Brunk!

Recology CleanScapes will collect unflocked, undecorated, natural holidays trees in lengths up to 4 feet this month.

Customers who subscribe to food/yard waste collection service may place trees out for collection on their regularly scheduled food/yard waste collection day.

Residential customers who do not subscribe to food/yard waste service may schedule collection of properly prepared trees during the first two full weeks in January at no additional charge. Contact customer service at 206.767.1166 or
at [email protected] by Sunday, Dec. 31 to schedule tree collection.

Flocked trees are not accepted in compost collection because flocking contains non-compostable materials including adhesives, flame retardant, or additives. Flocked trees may be disposed as garbage for an additional fee.

Holiday Collection Schedule
Recology CleanScapes does not collect on Christmas or New Year’s Day. This year, these holidays fall on a Monday. If your regularly scheduled service falls during this week, you will be serviced one day later. For example, Monday customers will be serviced on Tuesday, Tuesday customers will be serviced on Wednesday, Wednesday customers will be serviced on Thursday, and so on.

Inclement Weather Issues
Winter storms could make it unsafe to collect customer containers. To find out about temporary service changes:

  • Visit the recology.com/seatac website for service updates.
  • Check your voicemail for a message from Recology CleanScapes about service changes.
  • If your services schedule is disrupted, Recology CleanScapes will collect your containers when it is safe to do so, typically on your next collection day.

This week iLoveKent.net and South King Media, owner of six local blogs – including The B-Town and Waterland Blogs – celebrated their 10-year anniversaries with a big announcement. 

Effective January 1, 2018, South King Media will take over the day-to-day operations of iLoveKent.net, a Kent-based blog started by freelance writer and publisher Dana Neuts in September, 2007. Scott Schaefer will be responsible for the editorial side of the business, and Theresa Schaefer will manage the business side including sponsorships and advertising.

iLoveKent celebrated its 10-year anniversary last Friday at Artsy Fartsy Art Lessons in downtown Kent with about three dozen guests in attendance, including readers, sponsors, advertisers and friends. Neuts made the announcement that evening.

“I started iLoveKent ten years ago to fill a growing media gap in South King County. The site has grown beyond my expectations, particularly in the last year with our rebranding, participating in community events and hosting of two Kent political candidate debates,” Neuts said. “It is time to take the site to the next level, and I know that the Schaefers and their team are the right people to do that. They will retain all of our strengths and build upon our successes.”

South King County media will keep Michelle Teeter and Kara Hackney of the iLoveKent team on to assist with the transition and future growth. Neuts will stay on as an advisor and occasional writer, and the Schaefers will be responsible for all editorial and operational decisions starting January 1.

“This is a very exciting opportunity,” Schaefer said. “Our goal is to utilize what we’ve learned over ten years of producing local, award-winning reporting and translate that to iLoveKent. Dana has done a terrific job building her site up, and we will work hard to replicate what we’ve done in our other markets – in this case our goal will be to make this the leading news source for Kent.”

Kent is the sixth largest city in the state, and third largest in the county, with a population of 126,952.

iLoveKent will be the seventh local news blog that South King Media publishes in the region.

The SeaTac City Council on Tuesday (Dec. 12) approved a somewhat contentious and long-debated new 10-year Interlocal Agreement that should bring at least $30 million into city coffers. Councilmembers Rick Forschler and Tony Anderson were the two negative votes, with all others voting to approved the pact.

Earlier on Tuesday, Port of Seattle representative Katie Kuciemba Halse told the Council that Port Commissioners also voted approval of the agreement. Port of Seattle Commissioners Stephanie Bowman, John Creighton and Fred Fellerman voted for the ILA, while Commissioner Tom Albro voted against it. The fifth commissioner, Courtney Gregoire, reportedly had to leave the meeting before the vote but was considered in favor of the agreement.

Long negotiations
The City and the Port began negotiating this Interlocal Agreement (ILA) in June, 2016, under the overall guidance of the city’s Joint Advisory Committee.

“The agreement before you today is fair and balanced, providing predictability and consistency both to the Port and to the city,” Halse told Councilmembers before their vote. She listed several improvements, including compliance with the city’s business license rule with a fee structure to support integration of port permitting into the city’s system. She also noted increased money to support added policing because of the people going through the city on the way to and from the airport.

Departing SeaTac Councilmember Kathryn Campbell asked why the agreement delegates to the port ability to issue city permits for development at the airport. City Manager Joe Scorcio said that delegation of the Port as the city’s agent was made because much of the permitting is for aviation related facilities requiring a unique, or airport related skills.

Keeping qualified staff
Also, there are times when there is planning and engineering underway for future facilities and the airport is able to keep qualified staff on salary. If the city did the permitting, it would have to carry uniquely qualified employees on the paid staff that were basically underutilitzed.

“This is the cyclic pattern that occurs in development in which you are busy and then you are not busy … during the time that you’re not busy, you are carrying the cost,” Scorcio said. “The Port wants to take the burden on carrying that static cost, it made sense to let them through this agreement.”

The city has an oversight authority to maintain quality of planning and work.

He said the new agreement brings any development adjoining parts of the city administered as property that now must be buffered. In the past, no buffers were required. The lack of buffers is not needed in interior areas of the airport where decisions are made for operational reasons.

Giving up too much
Forschler said he thought delegating permitting to the Port was giving up too much and the city should retain all of its legal authority. “In my mind, giving up permitting is one of the critical things we are missing in this,” he said.

“We are giving up too much,” Forschler added.

Scorcio said the difference was delegating to another goverment and the city has that authority.

The city will get a lot more money from the Port under the new agreement, said Mayor Michael Siefikes. The city got about $4 million from the port in the last 10 years, but Scorcio said the city will get “just short of $30 million in the next 10 years under the new ILA.” Siefkes said that doesn’t include additional money the city will get from currently unlicensed businesses on Port property or other changes built into the agreement, especially as the Port enters a high growth period.

Another part of the ILA is for the Port to close all of the unneeded accesses that interrupted city rights of way. In the past, Scorcio said, every time the Port needed an access for some type of construction change they put in a driveway, they later locked it up up and left it there.

“That is an unacceptable condition in the long term,” he said. “This agreement means they will be working cooperatively with us to identify the ones they no longer need and restore city right of way to its proper condition,” he said.

Two councilmembers leaving
Councilmember and former mayor Tony Anderson served on the SeaTac Council for 12 years and did not seek reelection and will be replaced by newly elected Clyde (Fuzz) Hill.

The other departing member is Councilmember Kathryn Campbell, who served four years but was defeated in the November election by incoming Councilmember Joel Wachtel.

SeaTac Police Chief Lisa Mulligan was given the key to SeaTac at Tuesday night’s City Council meeting because she is leaving the city to join the top command staff of new King County Sheriff Mitzi Johanknecht when she takes office in January.

Mulligan, a major in he King County Sheriff’s Office, said she was happy about her appointment but sad to leave the city.

She was selected in 2013 as Police Chief in SeaTac to replace James Graddon, who retired after serving for over six years.

Mulligan is a 32 year veteran of the King County Sheriff’s Office. Previously she served as the contract chief of Metro Transit Police, assistant commander of the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Center, and spent much of her career patrolling the southwest area of King County as a deputy and sergeant.

Councilmember Erin Sitterley said she has done a “tremendous job leading our police force. I never hear more than ‘we love Lisa, we love Lisa.’”

Retiring Councilmember Tony Anderson, attending his last session of the Council, and himself a retiree of the Port of Seattle Police, said Mulligan “is one of those rare people who can “speak nicely, speak gently, speak engagingly but still with authority.”

Deputy Mayor Pam Fernald said she was one of the Councilmembers who first interviewed her, and “it has been a pleasure and I wish you all the best.”

City Manager Joe Scorcio said he was on the selection committee when she was chosen from candidates presented by the Sheriff’s office.

“There was no question in my mind that she was the right choice for the city,” he said, adding the biggest loss was going to be her absence. “I am personally honored to be part of your entourage and I will continue to be a very, very strong supporter of you as you move up into the higher ranks of the Sheriff’s department.”

Mulligan, he said, will be one of the four people whom new Sheriff Mitzi Johanknecht trusts highly to run the “very, very large organization and our Chief Lisa is one of those … it is a very big deal.”

“You can’t engage with the community without people willing to engage with you and that is what I found here in SeaTac and think that is what our officers encounter here in SeaTac. We so appreciate that. Every single thing that looked like I implemented that, there were 40 men and women standing behind me willing to do that — talented people we bring here because we know that they are going to be able to serve this community the way they do,” Mulligan said, adding she grew up in SeaTac and got her first job there.

Tyee High School senior Aracely Casillas was recently featured in a Code.org video meant to energize school districts, community leaders and Fortune 500 companies to ensure every kid in America has equitable access to computer science learning:

Just 40% of U.S. schools offer computer programming courses. But in Highline, nearly 90% of our high schools and 100% of middle schools offer computer science courses and programming.

“The best part about computer science is that it’s a challenge, and I love a good challenge,” Aracely said.

Aracely wants to make sure students just like her, all across the country, have the same access to computer science that she has in Highline.

“Computer science changed a lot for me. It changed where I am going. It changed where I see myself in 10 years,” she said.

Highline Public Schools voters will be asked to renew a four-year educational programs and operations levy in February, 2018.

The levy is not a new tax. It replaces the current levy, which is set to expire at the end of 2018.

Levies pay for educating students and operating schools above the costs covered by the state.

The state Supreme Court says schools are not yet fully funded by the state. Our local levy makes up the gap between what the state funds and the education Highline schools provide.

The proposed levy pays for needs the state is not fully funding, like special education, school nurses, school security, transportation, help for students who need additional support and other critical needs.

If approved, the new levy tax rate will be significantly less than the current levy tax rate.

Staff Positions Funded with Levy Dollars:

  • Teachers: additional teachers maintain smaller class sizes
  • School safety & security officers: the state funds 3.5 FTE; Highline provides 14 FTE (FTE = full time equivalent)
  • School nurses: the state funds 3 FTE; Highline has 15 FTE
  • Classroom instructional assistants: additional assistants provide individual and small group instruction
  • Counselors & school social workers: the state funds 38 counselors and 1 social worker; Highline provides 47 counselors and 8 social workers
  • Educational Programs Not Fully Funded by the State
  • Camp Waskowitz outdoor learning experience: includes week-long sixth-grade camp and outdoor education for other grades
  • Special education
  • Athletics
  • Extended learning programs for students who need extra help

The state is providing additional dollars to school districts under its new funding plan but is limiting the amount districts can request in local levies. As a result, even with passage of a renewal levy, we will see a net reduction in revenue after the current levy expires—unless the Legislature makes changes to the current funding plan.

If approved by voters, the new estimated levy rate will be $1.50 per $1,000 assessed home value. Here is the maximum amount that can be collected:

  • 2019: $47,329,540
  • 2020: $48,749,426
  • 2021: $50,211,909
  • 2022: $51,718,266

In comparison, the 2017 levy tax rate is $3.38 per $1,000 assessed home value with a maximum collection of $60.8 million.

Police arrested a 24-year old man Wednesday night (Dec. 6) in connection to the death of a 2-year old boy in SeaTac last Sunday.

Police say that on Sunday, Dec. 3, just after 1 p.m., medics responded to the Willow Lake Apartments in the 3000 block of S. 208th Street (map below) for a report of a 2-year old child who was not breathing.

Resuscitation efforts on the child failed, and he was pronounced dead at the scene. Detectives responded to the scene to investigate the death and learned the child’s mother went to work and left her son in the care of her 24-year old boyfriend.

Detectives arrested the boyfriend Wednesday night, and he was booked into the Regional Justice Center in Kent.

The case has been forwarded to the prosecutor’s office.

City/Airport Interlocal Agreement: Loaded with Air and Water

By Earl Gipson

A different Cactus Column. These are just my Public Comments regarding the proposed Interlocal Agreement to be voted on 12/12/17. Pretty long and thank you for your patience…

December 5, 2017

Dear Port of Seattle Commission and SeaTac City Council,

My name is Earl Gipson. I have been in aviation for over 40 years, and my company is Gipson Technical Services (since 1996). Still debating whether I am retired or not. My home and office are located in the City of SeaTac at 17050 51st Ave South. My company’s primary function is writing/generating compliance documents/processes under Title 14 of the Code of Federation Regulations-Aeronautics and Space. Title 14 is also commonly know as the FAR’s (Federal Aviation Regulations).

The City of SeaTac and the Port have Seattle chosen to enter into an Interlocal Agreement and provided materials and the proposed agreement for Public Comments on line. Herein lies mine, starting with the Executive Summary.

Comments-Executive summary

Found at: http://www.ci.seatac.wa.us/Home/ShowDocument?id=18825

Page 1 Second Paragraph under Paragraph 2

“As stated in the Guiding Principles established by the JAC before commencing negotiations, the focus of this Agreement is about the City and the Port‘s unique relationship and a shared goal of ‘moving forward together’ rather than focusing on the past.”

This needs to be deleted. There is no reason the City should forget the port Guiding Principles hooey and this paragraph just reminds SeaTac Citizens just how the port has ripped us in the past. The ~ 24 million in parking taxes comes to mind right off the bat. Best not mention it all. Ignoring and manipulating the City’s regulations/requirements has been a pattern. Food trucks/cell phone lot just a recent example. See final comments.

Comments-Permitting and Inspections

According to promises and discussions throughout the past two years, permitting was supposed to revert to the City of SeaTac (where it should be). The reasoning that the port has 75 projects going at the same time, all need a quick turnaround, and the port has unique expertise is a hollow argument. The jurisdiction/responsibility lies with the City and using the port as an agent is the fox guarding the hen house.

Case in point is the airport freeway design. Crossing of three lanes of traffic in 1000 ft to take an exit coming from departures is insane and is reflected in how people drive on it. Departing from airport parking to get to a local hotel/motel with no exit till SR518/I-405? The double fuel increase for the vans, taxies, and ride shares since this freeway opened tells us the port has no more expertise than any other incompetent highway engineers and/or planners.

Permitting is a methodological approach to compliance to a set of rules, inspections requirements, and milestones. Nothing more than project management. Gearing up the staff of the City beats letting the port do pretty much as it pleases (like the past doesn’t matter). The City of SeaTac is/should be the check and balance on the port for the benefit of all the Cities that abut the airport.

While the new ILA requires the port to enter into the SeaTac system all permits issued (to themselves) any non-compliance should be met with immediate withdrawal of their status as permit agent/delegate.

Comments-Surface Water Management

The discounts to the port are excessive. Considering the fact there are over 3 square miles of impervious surfaces (most of it contiguous) the rate should even be higher rather than discounted in excess of the SeaTac Municipal Code. Commercial businesses in our City get a set discount for surface water actions and private residents get none no matter their actions to contain/control it on their own properties.

Yes, per paragraph 6.3 (B) of the ILA, the airport is unique but not in the way of discounts but in fees that should be greater than routine commercial properties. Paragraph 6.3(B)1 provides for over a 50 percent discount to the port for Surface Water Management (SWM) to the tune of $1.2 million annually. A single small SWM project in our City easily exceeds that cost and these are shared funds across the entire City. The port/airport continues not to pay its fair share to the City Of SeaTac in this agreement.

Comments-Environmental/SEPA

The Port has already been challenged on their Determinations of Non-Significance issued on a number of occasions and these challenges, because of their complexity almost always come from someone with lots of attorneys. The City of SeaTac can review the SEPA documents but cannot release them until the Port gets to change them. Reading between the lines. See Paragraph 6.1 (B)(b)(i). How convenient.

If you wish to view the Port’s SEPA appeal process see Section 21 of:

https://www.portseattle.org/About/Commission/Commission-Resolutions/Resolutions/Resolution_3650.PDF

All I have time for on this subject. Clock is ticking.

Comments-Public Safety and General Services

Referring to Paragraph 7.6. 1 Community Relief I do not believe the $1.4 million is adequate for impacts related to airport operations. $2.0 million sound much better with a clause that allows increases based on metrics.

The wording of Paragraph 7.6.1 limits the City from asking for more during the term of the agreement and 7.6.2 allows the Port to withhold payment should the City need to sue them when Dispute Resolution fails under Paragraph 2.4. How is this good for the City of SeaTac?

Further, it was stated by the port that the FAA does not allow “Revenue Diversion” and Community Relief cannot be paid from airport revenues and come from other sources. I assume they are talking about this document:

https://www.faa.gov/airports/resources/publications/federal_register_notices/media/obligation_final99.pdf

See page 7704, third column, under “final policy” where the FAA provides for some flexibility depending on how the request is worded, related, and otherwise proven. That’s an attorney question, however whether this conversation even took place with the FAA is where I have some doubts. I have the assurances of port and City officials that it did but I require documentation to truly believe that.

COMMENT-AN ASIDE ON THE FAA

You will get nowhere with me talking badly about the FAA. The FAA is one, if not the most successful agencies/bureaucracies of the Federal Government, The FAA’s mandate when they were created on August 23,1958 was to promote airline travel AND safety. They have accomplished both in fantastic fashion in the 60 years of their existence. The 10’s of thousands of huge and complex flying machines now traverse our skies daily mostly without a thought. When a rare something goes terribly wrong there is unfortunately few survivors and headlines for weeks.

I have worked with the FAA for decades. Never did they lie to me or refuse to discuss issues relating to safety, aircraft, and/or my client’s concerns. Of course we had disagreements (mostly with me being the more anal) but we always worked them out. They will always have my respect for the work they do and what they have accomplished.

I hope someone really did talk with the FAA and can provide some proof.

COMMENTS-GENERAL

Request for Public Hearing: Denied

Request for extension of approval/vote to early 2018: Denied (Current agreement does not expire till mid-February)

Request for Public Records of 3rd party review prior to vote: Denied. Attorney/Client privilege was cited as the reason those records are withheld till 12/28/17 (after the vote). Who knows what I’ll get.

Does anyone see a pattern here? It was stated by SeaTac Mayor Siefkes in the Airport Committee that without a 12/12/17 vote/decision there would be no ILA and the port would balk. I pray that our hostages held by the port are released safely.

Has the zebra/port changed its stripes? Just recently this year a pilot program was initiated regarding Food Trucks at the airport cell phone lot by the port. The City was not consulted and it was clearly a violation of our current code and a complete disregard for our jurisdiction/prohibition of these businesses (thus far). I have nothing against food trucks as long as they pay our sales taxes but the port acted unilaterally (again) until they were caught.

It is a shame I have to rush these comments (today is the deadline) and could not go paragraph by paragraph. There is at least 10 pages of “air” in this 76 page legal document that serve no purpose but only to sell us this thing and tell us how great the negotiators are/were and a kum bah yah singing is forthcoming/inevitable by both parties. I am far more cynical and do study the past.

Time will tell on that note but there is yet a larger one coming. The airport is out of room/land for projected operations/passengers. Unless we learn how to stack commercial aircraft the projected operations will not fit. A hush house, hangers, and a new second terminal all in the existing 2500 acres? This will make us the densest airport in the nation and it has never been done before nor should it be.

The reality is that we will inevitably need another international airport somewhere. This will take 4 square miles of contiguous space somewhere either obtained by eminent domain or other method of land acquisition. Any ideas?

Well folks that’s all I have time for or my homework will be tardy (due 12/05/17) and be dismissed.

In 2018, the Port of Seattle will launch a new way for the communities of Burien, Des Moines, Federal Way, Normandy Park, SeaTac and Tukwila to engage with Sea-Tac Airport staff, at meetings convened by the airport managing director.

Participants will be able to share information, discuss community concerns and voice feedback on the airport’s construction projects, programs and operations. Meetings will allow dialogue on airport activities, will inform decision-making and increase knowledge about the airport and the cities.

Membership will include community members and staff from each city; and representatives from airlines, air cargo and the Port. The Federal Aviation Administration will provide agency expertise.

The two SeaTac community members will be appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council following the City’s Citizen Advisory Committee vacancy process.  If you are interested in being considered, please fill out a Citizen Advisory Committee application and background check form and submit them to the City Clerk’s Office, 4800 South 188th Street, SeaTac, WA 98188 – originals only.

Applications will be accepted until Friday, Dec. 15, and are available on the City’s website:

By Jack Mayne

The SeaTac City Council was told at Tuesday night’s regular meeting that it had a 2018 “rainy day fund” of “approximately $13 million,” and the money is a hedge against future unforeseen financial problems or requirements.

Finance Director Gwen Pilo is there just in case of whatever could happen in the year until the current budget runs its course.

The current city biennial budget is in its second year, with a new budget formulated and to be adopted sometime late in 2018. State law requires cities with biennial budgets to conduct a mid-biennial budget review. The Council reviewed proposed budget modification from the city administration and considered.

Police grant lost
One change was the application for a half million dollar grant application that would have partially funding two officers was not approved because there were 1,100 applications for the grant, Scorcio said.

Outgoing Councilmember Tony Anderson noted that the officers were still needed.

City Manager Joseph Scorcio said there was money for the officers in unbudgeted funds, but recommended that the matter be considered by staff and a recommendation made in early 2018. He noted during discussions on the pending agreement with the Port of Seattle that police services is where the the city is hit the hardest.

The Council told the staff to not increase the property tax levy for property owners along with eliminating income from the end of the red light traffic cameras at year’s end.

Still, the 2018 general balance ending fund balance in the amount of $52.6 million for all budgeted funds.

Interlocal agreement
The proposed 10-year interlocal agreement was slated for approval by the Council, a new one to replace a Port-SeaTac agreement that has been in existence since 1997 with a new one, said Scorcio, was to “eliminate, replace prior agreements.” The current proposed would fully replace the one that is slated to expire Feb. 16, 2018. The agreement came following extensive negotiations between elected officials and staff personnel of both the Port and city.

The Council was shown “key elements” of the new agreement which include land use and development regulations, $1.4 million a year for traffic problems and stormwater feels of $1.3 million a year. Port employees would monitor and the Port’s agreement to further support the city’s requirement that private enforce city business licenses in and around airport facilities have valid SeaTac city licenses. Income from business license fees is projected “at minimum” of $226,000 a year and would increase as business at the airport increases.

In addition, the two governments would form land use and other “development regulations to meet the needs of the Port and the city.”

Scorcio said “clearly an improvement” is a plan to fix minor problems by memos of agreement between the agencies.

Part of the agreement, once implemented, would require a full review of the agreement at halfway through, or in five years after implementation and the option to reopen and renegotiate the agreement or parts of it. There is also a two year notice if something must be renegotiated outside of the mandatory review period.

Another part of the agreement is a plan for regulations and map that Scorcio said “clearly identifies what is Port airport operations responsibility” what is the area the city has the most involvement. It will require buffers to airport specific facilities that are directly next to city area now with no buffers at all. The “edges” matter, he said, not those inside the perimeters of the airport.

Port help for police
Scorcio said, SeaTac has a population of 29,000 but the airport draw makes that a daily crowd of 179,000 people. “That’s the big gap.”

But he said the new potential agreement with the Port recognizes.

“This is a community unlike any other community in the state of Washington and possibly in a lot of other places where so much of our city limits is impacted by one single property owner that doesn’t pay (property) tax,” he said which is where the funds to pay police comes from.

The Port has agreed in he proposed ILA to pay $1.4 million annually as community relief to help us in the areas of safety and public services, Scorcio said.

Where did that number come from? It is extracted from the cost of providing an officer 24 hours a day and that would cost the city about $1.2 million now and about $1.6 in 10 years. The number selected was “in the middle” and a flat rate which makes it easier to work out, he said.

In other business
Council approved a two-year agreement with Philips Publishing Group for a new publication. The city’s parks and recreation guide will be redesigned as the city’s SeaTac Magazine, said Executive Assistant Lesa Ellis, at a cost of $58,100 per year. Advertising would be sold in the publication but the potential income to the city is so far unknown, Ellis said.

New city employees were introduced by Scorcio – they are Emergency Management Coordinator Wilfredo Lugo, Computer Technician Kim Tang, and Accounting Technician Jennifer Berg.

‘Rocco’ the dog went missing Tuesday night (Nov. 21) in Boulevard Park near 8th Ave S. & S. 112th Street, by Glen Acres Golf & Country Club (map below):

  • Name: Rocco
  • Color: Brown
  • Breed: Shepherd/Lab/Corgi Mix
  • Weight: 60 lbs
  • Description: neutered male with distinct “corgi-like” erect ears, no collar but is microchipped
  • Last seen: near 8th Ave S. & S. 112th Street, by Glen Acres Golf & Country Club.

“There is modest reward if Rocco is found. Though he is a very sweet dog, he can be skittish at times and wary of strangers. Our family is devastated and would very much appreciate any help in finding Rocco.”

If you’ve seen Rocco, please contact Bertha at (206) 295-8768 or [email protected].
