Tras la votación de nuestra reunión de junio, nuestro Consejo Comunitario cuenta ahora con estatutos y políticas y procedimientos y estamos dispuestos a escuchar lo que está en la mente de las personas con respecto a las cuestiones de toda la isla.

Nuestra reunión del 20 de julio comenzará con una sesión de actualización y preguntas y respuestas con John Taylor, jefe de la División de Servicios Locales del Condado de King, que cubre las carreteras del condado, los permisos de emisiones, administra la planificación del uso de la tierra, la aplicación del código y una serie de otras responsabilidades que cubren las Islas Vashon-Maury.

Esta será una oportunidad para que John escuche directamente de usted lo que ve como las necesidades de nuestra isla, las preguntas que pueda tener y las observaciones sobre cómo podemos asociarnos mejor con el condado. Y nuestras preguntas y observaciones deben ser presentadas a David Vogel antes del jueves, 16 de julio para que Juan tenga tiempo de representarse mejor preparado: dsvogel.atty@gmail.com

Si el tiempo lo permite, podemos hacer preguntas a Juan durante la reunión también.

La otra cuestión clave que abordaremos el 20 de julio es alentar a las personas a presentarse al Consejo de Administración. Queremos que tanta gente como sea posible forme parte de la junta.
