A comparison of or- dinance W-92 and the last amended salary or- dinance, W-81, shows the former increases the monthly salary range of the police chief while changing the position of commander to captain and increasing the salary through three steps in- stead of two. The director of communication's sala- ry range is also increased, through two steps, and a new communications supervisor position is created. Schuller said the changes have a goal of getting as many qualified officers as possible out onto the streets during patrol work. "I think in the end, it makes us more effi- cient as an operation," he added. Schuller said he and Hensley would present the reorganization plan to the council at its next meeting, June 14. The council held all three readings and final pas- sage of ordinance W-92 at the May 24 meeting. Council also held the second and third read- ings and final Passage of five separate ordinances making changes to the city's building codes, most revolving around replacing the require- ments of the 2012 Interna- tional Code with the 2015 International Code. Ordinance W-87 alone repealed 14 sections of municipal code chapter 19, replacing them in some cases with more consolidated sections while eliminating others entirely. Public Works Director Todd Ableman said the only change made in W-87 since its first reading at the May 10 meeting was the addi- tion of a section clarifying the 12 items needed in or- der to receive a certificate of occupancy. At the May 10 meeting, Councilman Dan Hilton raised the issue of seismic design requirements un- der the 2015 International Code, which are listed as Seismic Design Category C for this area. Hilton said builders in the area have expressed concerns over this requirement, noting it's more expensive to build to zone C specifica- tions than it is for zone B, adding that builders have to almost prove the more stringent requirements aren't needed for their project. Ableman said at that meeting that it depends on the size of the structure, and that mainly buildings going above three stories are where that type of engi- neering requirement comes into consideration. No men- tion of seismic zone design requirements took place at the May 24 meeting. Three other ordinances repealed existing sections of the code entirely. Ordi- nance W-91 created a new chapter that spells out the process for receiving "zoning permits for build- ing permit exemptions that are resulting from CMC Title 19 changes." "This just changes the review process over onto the zoning (code)," Able- man said. Finally, the council held final readings and passage of an ordinance establishing an overlay for the Washington Court residential area across Elm. Street from Eastern Wash- ington University. The ordinance sets up zonLng and land use regulations for limited residential de- velopment along Wash- ington Court that should conform to R-3 multifam- fly regulations but be more "campus-style" to blend in with the university, John McCallum can be reached at jmac@cheney- p I I I J I I I I I l l I I I I I Dr. David Turner, DMD Modern Mostdentel dentistry insurances withold accepted fashioned includingTricare care ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS Davenport Family Dent ry 707 Lopn St., Davenport, WA 509-725-1181 "Committed h~ Excd|ence' We offer residential re-roofs, tear-offs, new construction and commercial wore We specialize in: - Composition - Steel - Flat roofing -Aluminum - Copper Call Brad Hemenway at 509.991.4667 for a free estimate today !
