The decision to make Bauer permanent did not change anything in her contract, however, it added two extra months of severance pay to a maximum of six months. Bauer is an at-will employee, meaning she can be terminated at any time, for almost any reason. Bauer makes approximate $150,000 annually.

How quickly we forget. In 1994 we islanders approved becoming a city so we could control our own destiny. Home rule was the gold standard that people voted for.

As a land-locked property owner who owns only a canoe, I have no direct interest in the Bainbridge Island shoreline property issues.

I have two thoughts about the re-opening of Winslow Way.

Why is City Hall and Winslow Street Smarts so apologetic to and for the construction going on in our face?

While the street work in Winslow continues to be quite the ordeal, it might also provide a rare opportunity to make lemonade out of lemons.

Our new council-manager form of government has reached an important milestone. On Aug. 10, Brenda Bauer became Bainbridge Island’s first city manager. Since June 2010, Ms. Bauer has worked with the council and staff to address the city’s financial crisis by cutting expenditures and increasing reserves. Today, the city is poised to begin a new chapter to improve its governance.

Fortunately, the Review’s office is returning (as you read this) to the downtown area after being located in a Day Road industrial park for four years. The move from The Pavilion occurred in 2007 when Sound Publishing (our corporate parent) shifted its headquarters to Poulsbo and left vacant the second story of the building containing Sound’s press and pre-press operations.

We are writing to urge Bainbridge Islanders to vote for Barry Peters for City Council. There are always a number of island challenges to be met. Always there will be strongly held differing viewpoints on how these challenges will be addressed. How we make decisions matters.

I work very hard not to involve myself in politics. But it doesn't take a genius to see that our city government is struggling, and basic community needs are not being met.

Kudos to our city's council, administration and staff for a remarkable accomplishment. Now we can get on with addressing the urgent challenges we face in a considered, cost effective and sustainable way. On Aug. 16, island voters have the opportunity to vote to re-elect Barry Peters, one of the council members who has played a key role in this achievement

In the at-large City Council position I would like to state my support for Kimberly Hendrickson, who has an impressive background in political science and urban affairs and has been published in academic journals.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a successful businessman on the City Council? A businessman who can work collaboratively and yet who, after reviewing information, can make decisions. Steve Bonkowski is that person.
