H. HARRISON, Mayor <br />April 13, 1976 <br />ROLL CALL <br />The regular meeting of the Edmonds City Council was called to order at 7:30 P.M. by Mayor Harve <br />Harrison in the Council Chambers of the Edmonds. Civic Center, with all councilmen present except <br />Anderson, who was attending a seminar in Oregon. <br />APPROVAL -OF MINUTES <br />Minutes of teh regular meeting of April 6 had been posted, mailed and distributed, and Councilman <br />Gellert commented that at the bottom of page 1, Councilman Nordquist's motion should have the word • <br />"attempt' inserted before 'to resolve the problem in 2 weeks'. Minutes were then approved as <br />amended. <br />COUNCIL PARTICIPATION <br />Councilman Gellert inquired as to what legally do tree cutting restrictions on a plat mean? It <br />was noted that there was no "legal" meaning as such; that the city has had a policy to retrict <br />cutting of trees by the developer, and try to reach an agreement as to which trees can be saved, <br />which will be topped or limbed, etc. This is designed to prevent scalping of lots by the builder, <br />which makes building the homes easier. However, this tree cutting restriction is only until such <br />time as the property is sold. <br />Councilman Clement asked M.A.A. Whaley about the present status of the CETA employees. Mr. Whaley <br />reported that tomorrow, April 14, at 10:30 A.M. the outcome will be known. <br />Councilman Gould advised council that at the March 30 work meeting, Councilman Carns had been <br />selected to serve on the committee of elected officials of the ciW es involved under Public Law <br />92-500, the plan for secondary sewer treatment, and that since that time he and Councilman Carns had <br />discussed this, and were in agreement that since Councilman Gould had a great deal of interest in <br />this, he would like to volunteer to serve. Councilman Carns therefore will be replaced by Council- <br />man Gould. <br />Mayor Harrison reported that the Civil Service Commission had brought to his attention that they <br />would like to appoint their own secretary. The work load has become too heavy for a full time <br />city employee to -devote this much time to Civil Service duties. The Mayor stated that he felt it <br />was to the city's advantage to let the Commission appoint its own secretary, and it would mean <br />appropriationg about $1500 for the balance -of the year to fund this -and cover other expenses. A <br />secretary would be paid $4.50 per hour, with no fringe benefits. A MOTION WAS THEN MADE BY COUNCIL- <br />MAN GOULD THAT AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $1500 BE TRANSFERRED FROM THE CONTINGENCY FUND TO THE CIVIL <br />n <br />u <br />
