News from Kenmore City Council

by John Phelps

   At the Feb. 1 Kenmore City Council study session, the criminal code ordinance was presented by Police Chief Cliff Sether and City Attorney Mike Kenyon. The ordinance will be voted on at the Feb. 8 meeting.

   Chief Sether reported on the new King County Sheriff¹s Office Managed Patrol Performance/Alternative Call Handling. Under this plan, the 911 staff will take low priority police reports directly over the phone for follow-up by the police. This will save patrol and travel time, as well as making it easier for citizens to report vandalism, auto thefts, and similar non-urgent matters.

   The Feb. 15 Study Session was rescheduled to Feb. 22 after the regular City Council meeting.
