Council looks at utility taxes again, revenues would be dedicated to 177th

 The Woodinville City Council took the first step, again, towards setting aside revenues from proposed utility taxes for streets at last week's meeting. But this time funds collected from a two percent tax on electricity and natural gas, and four percent tax on telephones and garbage collection on city residents and businesses, would be specifically targeted at improving N.E. 177th Pl., the street paralleling Little Bear Creek.

Evergreen/Swedish partnership terminated

 After a year of consideration, the Evergreen Community Health Care board of commissioners unanimously terminated a memorandum of understanding with Swedish Health Services of Seattle last week, ending the proposed NEWCO partnership.
