EYE ON CLALLAM: County to discuss criminal justice services

Clallam County commissioners will discuss a letter from the city of Sequim that urges the board to maintain an existing interlocal agreement for criminal justice services when they meet Tuesday.

The work session will begin at 9 a.m. in the commissioners’ board room (160) at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles.

The letter from Sequim City Manager Charlie Bush asks commissioners to rescind and withdraw a July 10 letter that discussed the termination of the criminal justice services agreement.

Commissioners will conduct their regular business meeting at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Action items include:

• A certificate recognizing Port Angeles City Manager Dan McKeen for his six years of service to the city.

• An agreement with the city of Port Angeles to memorialize the 2 percent indirect rate to be applied to taxes, revenues and/or grant money collected for the support of enhanced 9-1-1 operations.

• An agreement with city of Port Angeles for joint purchase, deployment and maintenance of an emergency notification and alert system.

• An agreement with the state Department of Ecology for the Shorelands National Coastal Wetlands Conservation grant program.

• A call for Sept. 18 hearing for the sale of surplus property.

• A public hearing to repeal an ordinance that was never codified but proposed certain amendments to the Clallam County Home Rule Charter.

Commissioners are scheduled to attend a Thursday luncheon and Thursday community meet-and-greet with the four candidates for Clallam County administrator.

The board is scheduled to interview the candidates in an executive session from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday.
