In the area of planning, Council member Burt Edwards said the plan- ning commission had recommended the appointment of a hearing examiner to hear variance and special use permit requests. Under charter codes, Medical Lake is required to have either a hearing examiner or a board of adjustment. Edwards explained the commission favored having a hearing examiner "because appeals made on a decision would go before the council rather than Superior Court, which would be the next level of appeal if we had a board of adjustment." Edwards also said having an exam- iner appointed from the commission would "be best because they would be knowledgeable of the city's compre- hensive plan and zoning regulations... therefore they would be able to best reflect the intentions of the commission and the council." Council member George Ramsay expressed a concern that the appoint- ment of a single person rather than a group, to serve as hearing examiner could be a troublesome "consolidation of power and responsibility." "I believe this is a step in the right direction, but before we start drawing up an ordinance we have to have more information... I worry that someone could become judge and jury beth, and that the council would be hearing all the complaints." While Edwards pointed out that the hearing examiner position would en- able the city to maintain more local control over planning matters, by preserving the council as a level for appeal prior to a case going to court, council members indicated they were unsure that a single individual in the position was the best course of action. Following the proposal, Mayor Don Johns instructed Edwards to hold fur- ther discussions with the planning committee and commission before re- questing the city attorney to draft an ordinance. In other committee reports, Ramsay reported the public works committee is currently working on the financial arrangements necessary to finance the proposed two million dollar water system project for the city. The long- term project, which will involve exten- sive renovation of existing water pipes and water supply sources has recently received approval from the Depart- ment of Social and Health Services. The public works committee is also looking into ways of conducting its own study of the sewer system, Ramsay said. The city recently lost their request for a grant to study the inflow and infiltration problem in the city's sewer system. Because of this, Ramsay said, the committee in investigating the possibil- ity of trying to ascertain where ground water problems are coming from with an eye on the possible purchase of a sewer-cleaning machine to alleviate the problem. In other council news, Mayor Johns shared his concern with the council over increasing vandalism in city parks. "I'd like to see the council develop a policy or program to get these kids to rat on each other... If we can catch a few of these kids, maybe we can make some examples," he said. Military Affairs -- Burnett-- Teeh. Sgt. Harold F. Burnett, has been decorated with the Air Force Achievement Medal at Grand Forks Air Force Base, N.D ....... Burnett is the husband of the former Pamela Staley, daughter of Kathleen Staley of Medical Lake. The medal is awarded to airmen for achievement or meritorious service and acts of courage. Burnett is a bombing navigation systems technician During the meeting, the council heard from Medical Lake Police Chief Bruce Randall. The chief said much of the vandalism--incidents such as stuf- fing toilets with pine cones and stealing water fountains--is committed by youths in the last years of middle school or early high school. The council also discussed the value of having youth arrested for vandalism work off their crime through commun- ity service. Council members and the city attorney responded to the concept enthusiastically saying it was an effec- tive way to deal with damages done to city parks, while teaching students the consequences of criminal acts. Randall also presented a short report on crime activities in the city saying, "It's surprising, but compared to other communities this size, especially in the area of thefts, we're doing pretty well." "Our busy months come with fishing season and the resulting influx of people into the area," he said. During the meeting, the council gave its approval to ordinance 578, increas- ing compensation to volunteer firemen from $5 to $7 for meeting attendance. The city fathers also approved a contract with American Building Main- tenance for janitorial services for the city. The approval came after city animal control officer Ran Wilson requested that the council consider his bid for the contract after the March 21 deadline. Wilson told the council that accep- tance of his bid, which was lower than others entered would enable him to remain in the community. A discussion arose as to the liability of the city were it to accept a bid after the deadline given other contractors.

Upon completion of his special duty training, the airman will be assigned to Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota. Ferguson is a 1980 graduate of Medical ML boxers win trophies We came out batting 500... and we were beating kids with two and three years of experience," was the comment of Medical Lake Boxing Club Coach Rocky Briggs as he recounted the first major victory for his crew of "We Badd" boys. Briggs reported that six of his fledg- ling boxers walked away with three trophies at an early May faceoff with the Spokane East Valley Boxing Club. Boxers, Greg Nolting, Ricky Dobson, Mike Whitley, Derrick Kreager and Brian and Brad Olmstead made an impressive showing in their first official match. Athletes Nolting, and the two Olmstead boys each walked away with their first trophies, he said. While the season, dies down for the summer, Briggs said training will continue for the boxers. One event planned by the club is a series of boxing demonstrations of the "gentlemanly sport" during June's Founder's Day celebrations. Spurred by a $150 donation from the Lions Club, Briggs said installation of the professional boxing ring should be a reality shortly, once the floor for the ring, is purchased. He also said the Medical Lake Kiwanis Club has in- dicated they will make a donation to the purchase of the flooring. Briggs, with boundless enthusiasm for the "We Badd" boys, has high hopes for the club's future.
