Police Officers recognized at City Council Meeting

  • Written by Kara Roth
Two Woodinville deputies were recognized at the Woodinville City Council meeting on February 5, 2019.  Deputy Steve Wayne was given the Life Saver Award. Deputy Wayne was a responder to a roll-over accident in July 2018.  With his quick thinking and the use of his first aid training, he was able to save the life of a young woman who was actively bleeding due to the accident.  Deputy Dan Arvidson was recognized by Chief Kathy Larson as Officer of the Year.  Chief Larson recognized his efforts as above and beyond expectations in keeping the residents of Woodinville safe.  Deputy Arvidson will be leaving the Woodinville Police to become a detective in the Special Assault Unit. 
The Council approved continuing support for the ARCH program with a budget item of $15,466.  ARCH stands for A Regional Coalition for Housing.  ARCH has existed for 25 years and is a coalition of eastside cities with a focus on affordable housing. 
The Council also evaluated modifications to parts of Ordinance 678 in regards to residential housing in the tourist business zone.  The changes would allow for residential units to be on the ground floor of developments within the tourist area.  The council had many questions regarding the changes and decided to proceed with a second reading of the proposed modifications at the next council meeting.
The Council then approved the addition of two commissioners to the Public Spaces Commission, increasing the number from five to seven commissioners.  Six members were approved to serve on the commission; Sarah Arndt, Sean Dixey, Wyatt Houtz, Sandra White, Paul Haggen and Roy Ghazimorad.  The one remaining position is open and the City is accepting applications until February 11. 
The next council meeting will be February 19 at 7:00pm.
