for week ending january 8

Council,

Here are this week's items:

-    Monthly Meeting between Commissioner Ozias and Mayor Armacost - The Mayor and Commissioner met this morning.  Items discussed included COVID-19 vaccinations, reopening the Olympic Peninsula, housing, and a possible future joint City/County Council/Commission meeting.

-    Public Works Interim Staffing - With the upcoming retirement of Public Works Director David Garlington, I appointed Matt Klontz as Interim Public Works Director and Matt appointed Dave Nakagawara as Interim City Engineer this week.  Matt will have about a 4-week overlap with David before David takes the last couple of weeks of his time with us off.  David's last day in the office will be Friday, January 29.  Both Matt and Dave will serve in their interim roles for at least the next several months.

-    Congratulations to David Garlington - If you see him around, please congratulate David on an outstanding career!  We are planning an event for him on January 29th and will have more on that soon.  We are also planning a proclamation for the 1/25 City Council meeting.

-    Community Food Distribution – The report from the 12/23 food distribution is attached.

-    Planning Calendar – Was attached

Thanks,

Charlie Bush

City Manager
