Port Angeles city

The Port Angeles City Council will consider submitting $900,000 in state Recreation and Conservation Office grant applications for a variety of projects, including Civic Field lighting, and possibly take action on an employee settlement agreement at a special meeting Tuesday.

The executive session will begin at 4:30 p.m. in council chambers at City Hall, 321 E. Fifth St.

Council members may take action after the executive session, expected to last about 20 minutes.

They will discuss a settlement agreement regarding an employee during the closed session.

State applications would be made to fund replacement of floating docks at City Pier, Civic Field lighting replacements and for the city’s waterfront transportation improvement project.

Council members also will hear a presentation on the city’s long-range financial plan.

Sequim City Council

Sequim City Council members will discuss a 3 percent pay raise for City Manager Steve Burkett and an increase to council compensation in addition to reviewing the city’s ban on marijuana shops when they meet Monday.

The meeting will be at 5 p.m. at the Sequim Transit Center, 190 W. Cedar St.

A proposal to raise Burkett’s salary to $131,078 will be discussed and potentially approved.

Council compensation was discussed at its April 14 meeting and may be approved Monday. The proposal would increase monthly base pay while eliminating compensation for extra meetings.

Raises would begin only after the next elections for individual seats. Costs to the general fund would begin in 2016.

The city also will review its moratorium on marijuana businesses, enacted in March to enable the city to change its pot zoning in reaction to expected pre-emption legislation.

The state Legislature did not pass such laws.
