<br />courts, lighting of the football/soccer field, rest, room construction, upgrading and lighting of baseball
<br />field, upgrading of bleachers (covered) and contingency construction funds, fora total of $160,000.
<br />Rod noted that IAC prefers improvement of existing facilities, and the funding amounts to 75% IAC, 25%
<br />city. IAC also states that the city must have the money before making application, but Rod said he
<br />felt the IAC would accept approval from council, with the cash not needed until 1977. He noted that the
<br />program would cost the city an estimated $45,000, and he would ask council if they would agree to the basic
<br />concept. The minutes of the Park Board show a motion recommending this project. Rod advised that the
<br />application must be submitted by May 1. The item of the Boy's Club repair and upgrading was debated by
<br />council. Rod added that a proposed bond issue for park improvement, which will be given to council for
<br />consideration, could provide monies for this, if passed.

<br />OLYMPIC VIEW ANNEXATION POLICY CONSIDERATIONS
<br />M.A.A. Ron Whaley submitted to council a report containing a summary of statistical information
<br />of the Olympic View area, giving comparative data, predicted financial flow, and impact on the
<br />City of Edmonds of providing services to the area, if annexed. The information had been author-
<br />ized by council to be provided by the city staff for the benefit of both proponents and opponents
<br />to supply them with factual and accurate data.
<br />Councilman Carns told council that he had attended a couple of the anti. -annexation meetings held
<br />by people in that area, and he personally felt any attempt at annexation would not survive.
<br />M.A.A.Whaley introduced Mr. Jack McRae, leading proponent for annexation, who had originally
<br />requested this information. It was.council'.s opinion that the city should not be placed in
<br />the position of encouraging annexation, but should give the gathered information to Mr. McRae
<br />and let him proceed from this point. Mr. Whaley said the proponents would like the council to
<br />provide the answer as to whether or not the city would provide comparable services to this
<br />area, if annexed. There was discussion, and IT WAS MOVED BY COUNCILMAN HERB, SECONDED BY
<br />COUNCILMAN CARNS TO CONTINUE THIS DISCUSSION AT THE APRIL 13 COUNCIL MEETING, AND THE MOTION
<br />There was no further business, and the meeting was adjourned'at 8:45 P.M.

<br />COUNCIL PARTICIPATION
<br />Councilman Carns brought to council attention page 3-2 in the City Code, which refers to a council- •
<br />man -at -large elected for a two year term. He noted that this is no longer true under the Code City
<br />MOTION:" designation, and.therefore COUNCILMAN CARNS MOVED, SECONDED BY COUNCILMAN GELLERT TO INSTRUCT THE
<br />CITY ATTORNEY TO PREPARE AN ORDINANCE TO AMEND SECTIONS 1..1.2.010, 0.20, 030, AND ANY OTHER REFER-
<br />ENCE TO A SINGLE COUNCILMAN -AT -LARGE POSITION, WHICH CHANGED WHEN EDMONDS WENT FROM A THIRD CLASS

<br />MOTION AS AMENDED ALSO CARRIED, WITH COUNCILMAN NORDQUIST ABSTAINING BECAUSE HE WAS NOT PRESENT IN
<br />TIME TO HEAR THE BEGINNING OF THE PRESENTATION.
<br />Councilman Gould reported that he had represented Edmonds city CrAvernment at a meeting in Everett
<br />where they were informed about the new cancer care center at Providence Hospital. He said it was
<br />a very good presentation,and the construction for the facility would be about $560,000. One of
<br />their important pieces of equipment would be a linear accelerator.
<br />At council request, Ron Whaley at this point reported on the CETA funding. He said he had attend-
<br />ed a Manpower Consortium meeting in Seattle today and although there are several. factors in the
<br />mill; nothing would be known for sure until the 14th. He noted that Senator Magnuson may attach
<br />an emergency appropriation to carry the funding to the end of the fiscal year; that there was
<br />some possibility of some funding from October 1 to September 30, 1977 contained in one measure;
<br />and that what is happening in the political.field in Wash.ngton,D.C. in the next couple of weeks
<br />-will determine what the outcome will be in regard to CETA. If none of these proposals come to pass,
<br />the present funds will carry the City of Edmonds CETA employees to the end of May. Mr. Whaley
<br />advised that there was a meeting scheduled for this Thursday at 4 P.M. with the -.City of Edmonds
<br />CETA employees. He added that if there was no CETA funding forthcoming, it would be quite an
<br />impact on -.the City of Edmonds.
