Kenmore City Council deals with amendments, trucks, birds, flowers

   At the Oct. 26 Kenmore City Council meeting Gregg Dohrn, director of Community Development presented proposed changes to the zoning code and subdivision regulations. The amendments, which will be presented at a public hearing, included:
   In other council action, a change in the language for the proposed overnight parking law in residential zones was suggested. It would exclude pickup or panel trucks of one ton or less. The original law excluded those with one ton rated capacity. The change was voted on at the Nov. 2 meeting.
  
   Also at the Nov. 2 meeting, it was expected that the dahlia will be declared the Kenmore official flower, the rhododendron will become the official evergreen and the official Kenmore bird will become the Blue Heron.
  
   A council retreat open to the public is planned for January.
