<br />which sometimes arrives too .late for any action to be taken. The Council werein.,�greem�nt.that
<br />they would like to have the AWC communicati.ons.mailed directly- to their homes, rather than to the.
<br />City offices, to reduce the time for delivery. There was some discussion regarding.the forms which
<br />must be filed in connection with lobbying by a public official. _Little lobbying by the.Council had
<br />been done in the past, and it did not appear that much was anticipated.
<br />Mayor Ha.rriosn..announced that there..was.a vacancy on the Board, 'of Adjustment, caused by the resigna-
<br />tion of Al Bailey. He asked that.the Council meet i.n hi,s office prior to next week's meeting, at
<br />7:15 p.m., to interview Muryl Medina whom he was proposing to fill this vacancy.
<br />Curt Thomson, -representing LaPierre Industries, made an oral petition to the Council to accept the
<br />contract rezone provisions on the site at.212th St., between 72nd and 76th Aves., as satisfaction of
<br />the requirements of the recently passed In -Lieu Park Fee Ordinance (Ord. 2024).. Mr. Thomson
<br />explained that close to $300,000 will be spent on.landscaping and recreational- improvements to the
<br />site and he said his clients only -recently became aware.of..the In -Lieu Park Fee and felt it unjust
<br />that they should have to pay that fee in addition to the improvements they were providing. He said
<br />they had' been unaware of the legislation being prepared to require this fee at the time they were
<br />proposing their development. Community -Development Director John LaTourelle responded that he
<br />personally had advised Mr. Walker of LaPierre Industries that they must make application for their
<br />building permit prior to passage of the ordinance or be subject to the in -lieu fee. After some
<br />further discussion, Councilman Carns advised Mr. Thomson that it was a Council policy not to take
<br />any action on matters which arose from the audience but to schedule them on a future agenda, thereby
