Second reading will be next week. <br />PROPOSED ORDINANCE - AMENDMENT TO REQUIRE ANNUAL BUSINESS LICENSE <br />This matter came up for fitst reading. Mayor Harrison read a letter from Al Kincaid, <br />President of the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce, stating that t meeting of the Board of Trustees <br />had been held on the 5th of Fevruary concerning this item: The Trustees had suggested a $5.00 <br />annual business license fee, rather than the $5.00 one time only charge. Mr. Kincaid said <br />that it was his personal opinion that a flat $10.00 annual fee should be imposed. Councilman. <br />Herb said that he would favor a flat fee of $10.00 or $15.00, as he felt there were many <br />little businessmen in Edmonds that were struggling along and providing a good service, and <br />that he would not want to burden them with increased fees. Councilman Gould felt that the <br />$10, $25 and $50 was just about right. Councilman Carns said that he is in business in <br />Lynnwood and pays similar fees and he felt that he was paying his fair share of the city <br />services provided to him. Councilman Herb made an inquiry about fire inspection fees. Chief <br />Cooper said fees are not charged for inspections, but that probably what he is refeering to <br />is a $5.00 permit fee for the storage of.flammable substances. <br />STREET USE PERMIT - FREDERICKSON REALTY, MAIN STREET <br />City Engineer, Leif Larson, said that Frederickson has made a request for a sign 4' x 2' <br />which would.project into the right-of-way 3'.

STEINMAN) HAS MADE <br />NO REQUEST TO REMOVE IT. COUNCILMAN CARNS SECONDED AND THE MOTION WAS CARRIED. 'Deputy City <br />Attorney, John Wallace, then said that fir. Steinman has filed a Claim for Damages relating <br />to this matter, so any further input that he would have, i -n light -of the fact that there is <br />a possibility of litigation pending, would be more appropriate -for an executive session since <br />it would be in the nature of attorney -advice to client. <br />CLAIMS FOR DAMAGES <br />Council then acknowledged, receipt of a Claim for Damages from Merle Steinman. This was refer- <br />red to the City Clerk for processing.

The Mayor read the <br />letter which advised that the Department of,Fisheries is prepared to contribute financially <br />to the acquisition and/or development of appropriate -parking for fishing pier users. They <br />reserved $27,000 for this purpose. The Deputy Director said that if it is found in the <br />future that the parking cannot be adequately provided for with this amount, they would seek <br />an appropriate increase from the Legislature. Mayor Harrison said that at a recent meeting <br />with the Port, the Port indicated a desire to have the City make an,effort to acquire the <br />parking now. The Mayor felt that the City should attempt to use the $27,000,. and the City <br />should write a letter to the Burlington Northern and ask them for first refusal if the lot <br />at Dayton and Railroad becomes available.
