<br />Public Relations Director for the area Shorelines Savings Banks, who presented a flag which they
<br />asked the Council to consider for the City of Edmonds.. The design was almost identical to the
<br />official City symbol, and Mayor Harrison commented that it was very appropriate. Flags were presented
<br />to each Council member. COUNCILMAN,CARNS MOVED, SECONDED BY COUNCILMAN GOULD, THAT THE CITY ATTORNEY
<br />BE INSTRUCTED TO DRAFT A RESOLUTION ADOPTING THE FLAG PRESENTED BY SHORELINES SAVINGS BANK AS THE
<br />OFFICIAL FLAG OF THE CITY OF EDMONDS, AND THAT A SECOND RESOLUTION BE DRAFTED COMMENDING SHORELINES
<br />SAVINGS BANK FOR THEIR EFFORTS IN PRODUCING THIS FLAG.. Councilman Nordquist recalled that a flag
<br />had been adopted previously after a Jaycee contest to design it, and the previously adopted flag was
<br />very similar to this one. He'felt that out of respect to the first flag adopted the motion was out
<br />of order. Councilman Carns responded that if there.was one, he had never seen it -Fly, so he would
<br />not withdraw his motion. THE MOTION THEN CARRIED.

<br />the end of the first pararaph on Page 3 of the Minutes, it.was stated that no action was taken
<br />regarding the funding of dinner -.meetings, and Councilman Carns asked that the Minutes be amended to

<br />Meetings Act and the Board could not discuss anything that would go before them that evening.
