F 'e <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 />MOTTON�:: The re"wat',somd- further„discussion'; .and'-'A"MOTI:ON'-VIAS THEN")MADE�_.BY.''COONCILMAN'.CARNS, :SECONDED'.BY'1 <br />COUNCILMAN NORDQUIST TO AUTHORIZE DIRECTOR GARRETSON TO PROCEED WITH THE PRELIMINARY WORK ON <br />THIS IAC APPLICATION AND SUBMIT IT TO COUNCIL ON APRIL 27.

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.

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.
