Bainbridge Island City Council to meet Monday

In light of the Fourth of July holiday, the city council moved up its usual Wednesday meeting to Monday, July 2.

After an executive session, the council will convene in the council chambers at city hall at 5:30 p.m.

The council will receive a primer on a new report regarding the state of the island's waters. The report details the findings of multiple studies, including a water quality and flow monitoring program, the Kitsap Public Health District, the state Department of Ecology and the state Department of Health.

The overall report addresses the island's surface waters and pollutants to local freshwater and marine conditions.

The council will also discuss two interlocal agreements with the Kitsap County Traffic Safety Task Force, and the Kitsap County Department of Emergency Management.

The city's public works department will present two bills to fund island-wide roadway projects.

Public works officials are asking for $127,017 to pay for 1 million feet of striping along island roads. Another $334,097 will be requested to pay for chip seal to repair deteriorating island roads.

The night will conclude with a three-hour long review of the Shoreline Master Program as it relates to residential shoreline buffers.
