Port Angeles city/Port of Port Angeles

The Port Angeles City Council and Port of Port Angeles commissioners will discuss removing eight city-owned trees to free the port’s William R. Fairchild International Airport from Federal Aviation Administration landing restrictions when they meet Monday.

The joint meeting will begin at 10 a.m. in council chambers at City Hall, 321 E. Fifth St., and will include a public comment period.

Council members will vote on the eight-tree removal plan, which would allow the removal of specific trees from the western portion of the city-owned Lincoln Park so FAA restrictions on landing on runway 26 can be lifted.

They are expected to vote on a memorandum of agreement on how to develop a long-term solution to trees blocking full use of runway 26.

Port Angeles city

The Port Angeles City Council will consider garbage rate hikes, a West End Park construction contract and an agreement that could lead to the termination of the city’s “smart” meter contractor contract Tuesday.

The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. in council chambers at City Hall, 321 E. Fifth St.

The council is expected to vote on proposed garbage and transfer station rate increases after a continued public hearing at about 6:30 p.m.

They also will consider a “standstill” agreement with the city’s smart meter installer, Mueller Systems, that would suspend all work on the project and provide a 60-day window for the city and Mueller to negotiate a termination of the city’s contract with Mueller.

Additionally, council members will consider a not-to-exceed-$140,000 contract amendment with West Monroe Partners, the city’s consultant on the smart meter project, for technical support on negotiations with Mueller.

They will consider a $1.01 million construction contract with Port Angeles-based Bruch and Bruch Construction for the “pocket beaches” portion of the city’s West End Park project, which would lie just west of the downtown esplanade.

Other agenda items include:

■ A public hearing on the city’s 2015-20 transportation improvement program, with the hearing to continue to the June 17 council meeting.

■ Ordinances issuing municipal bonds to fund landfill bluff stabilization.

■ An ordinance implementing a mixed-use zoning overlay for commercial zones.
