The two-man committee, made up on councilmen Jim Jones and Jim Senff. will present a recommendation on the pro- posed ordinance at the council's next meeting May 4. The committee plans to discuss the proposal with the Arlington Chamber of Commerce. Supplying the city with a list of business owners, so in case of an emergency the proper person is contacted, and withhold- ing the renewal of the license to force compliance with codes were the two main reasons for the proposal. Jones introduced the proposal at the council's April 6 meeting. After holding up the Arlington 7-Eleven Store's liquor license application at the last meeting, the council removed its objections and plans to notify the state liquor control board to process the renewal request. City Code Enforcement Officer Bob Mulligan told the council, problems over original occupancy agreements have been worked out with the Southland Corpora- tion. the store's owner. The council was satisfied with Mulli- gan's report that the corporation will complete the agreement by paving an alley behind the store. A surprising fact turned up during Mulligan's investigation into the 7-Eleven problem. The store's parking lot exit onto SR-530 received city but not state approval. The safest channeling of traffic. at the store's intersection, is to be investigated by the state department of transportation. Tom Murdock of the Snohomish County Planning Department opened the council meeting with a presentation on drainage utilities in Snohomish County. Murdock gave a slide show on how development in the county can destroy streams, cause property damage and ~,,~ ~ecrease the fish population, if drainage restrictions aren't instituted, With development increasing in the Arlington area. Murdock said. drainage regulations must be created so damage doesn't occur. Examples of developments causing damage in King County were shown. The Snohomish County Council holds a public hearing May "4. after which Murdock expects the council to authorize the county to enter into the drainage utility business. In other business, the council: -postponed the meeting with the Portage Creek annexation initiators until the May 4 meeting. The Portage Creek representatives were not ready to meet with the council. -held a public hearing on the vacation of an alley off Fifth Street. Discussion on the vacation continues at the next meeting. -placed the construction of curb cuts, at Olympic and Third Street and at the crossevalk by the merchant parking lot, on next year's budget priority list. -approved the Arlington Lions Club's application to sell fireworks while tabling Border dispute may end soon from the Cicero site for annexation last fall. A resolution was passed by the fire district approving the annexation October L Fire District 21 passed a resolution against the move October 22 sending the i~sue "before the board, If Fire Distri~ 21 (Arlington Heights- Trafton) doesn t appeal, the Snohomish County Boundary Review Board decision. to county superior court by April 24, a six month border dispute ends. The boundary board approved the proposed annex of a portion of Fire District 21 into Fire Dist~'ict 25 (Use) March 3 and officiJtlly'sigMd the ordinance April 14. Fire District 21 has scheduied a special meeting Wednesday, April 22, to d~cuss its option to file an appeal or accept the boards decision, "according to Sharon Langdon. a DiStrict 21 commi~ioner, said. The Arlington Heights Fire. Hall is the site of the 7:30 p.m. meeting.. Fire District 25 holds a public hearing, then approves the ordinance, if aft appeal isn'4 filed. The Snohomish County Coun- cil's signing of the ordinance, to change the county record, is the final step. The council's signing is just a forfnality, said Bonnie Collins, boundary review board clerk. The two Fire Districts near Arlington disagree over a proposed annexation of one square mile of land into Fire Diiltrict 25 (Oso) from Fire District 21, The square mile is)ocated in the Ckero area, west of the Stillaguamish giver. Thirty-six persons reside in the area..

The council authorized the commission's pro- posed January 1982 rent fee to be implemented in July 1981. -authorized the mailing of a letter to the Bayliner Company. informing them an ordinance prohibits the serving of liquor on airport property. Bayliner had asked the council if liquor could be served during its company plcmc scheduled at the airport soccer field. -approved the airport commission's tie-down agreement recommendation. The airport no longer supplies tie-down ropes and airplane brakes must be left off so. in case of an emergency, the planes can be quickly moved. -amended East/West Deli's liquor license to allow liquor to be taken off the premises, if unopened. Poor participation forces changes Poor participation in the Arlington Elementary PTA by student's parents has caused school administrators, teachers and PTA officers to plan a re-organization. School personnel and the PTA officers meet May 1 in the small upstairs meeting roonl m Arlington City Hall at 1 p.m. Parent's input on what type of organiza- tion they want to have to keep communica- tion channels open with the elementary school is wanted. PTA president Robin Haas said. The preliminary-plan is to create a Parents Advisory Council rather than a PTA. he said. Parents would fill the president, vice-president and secretary- treasurer positions. Having one parent from each class as a representative is one suggestion the meeting participates are to discuss. The elementary, multi-purpose room 10 years ago was filled by parents at PTA meetings. Haas said. Today. 24 parents attended the first meeting this year. but at the last meeting. April 13, only four mothers showed up. For the past two or three years attendance has been poor. he said. "'Everyone can grip about school but won't get off their back end and do something about it." Haas added. Haas hopes the re-orRanization will get more parents interested in their children's education The new organized parents' group will deal with complaints, listen to suggestions and sponsor fund raisers. The group will be independent because it will no longer belong to the national PTA organization. Haas and the other PTA officers Pancake B~ - Bryant Firemen (from left to right) Jim Stutzman, John Gorsegner and Doug Peter~on will be a few of the firemen serving the pancake breakfast Sunday, April 26. at the Bryant Fire Station #1 from 2 a.m. to I p.m. The cost for adidts is $2.50, senior citizens $2 and children under 11 years old. $1,50. -Bob Williams photo volunteered to take the officer positions this year. after no one would show any interest. Next year. Haas is unable to hold the president position because he'll be in the Marysville School District. Haas doesn't expect the other members to serve another term. The May 1 meeting is to get a parents" group organized before next year. Persons unable to attend the meeting can contact Haas or Marvin Hendriekson. elementary principal, if interested in becoming involved with the new organiza. tion.
