Emergency 911 operators receiving the call gave it a priority three assignment--the lowest emergency as- signment--and referred the call to the Washington State Patrol, "by telephone before notifying dispatchers," accord- ing to State, who reviewed radio dispatches of the call. "This is often the practice on reckless or drunk drivers," he added. "A higher priority would have resulted in quicker response." A second call, reporting a car repeat- edly running over a stop sign, came in at 9"29, but emergency operators took no action at that point because a call had been dispatched to the State Patrol. Medical Lake officers were unaware of the incident because officers do not monitor the State Patrol radio frequen- cy, said State. Officers do monitor the County Sheriff radio frequencies, and emer- gency dispatchers issued a call on the reckless driving complaint to a Spo- kane County District No. 9 officer at 10:01 p.m. "This call was not heard by the Medical Lake officer (on patrol) who was away from the radio at the time, the dispatch lasted 10 seconds and was Seagrave seeking ncil Position 2 1t " " J" I| / /; Dave Seagrave exercise held 21 st Lake Fire Department A resident of Medical Lake for 10 years and a member of the City Council for four years, Dave Seagrave is vying for Council Position No. 2 again this year. Seagrave, 46, said he wants to be involved in the town and being on the City Council is his way of doing that. He said the work being done on the park and lake is important and should be kept up. He added that he thinks Medical Lake needs to control its growth and "needs to keep doing things our own way instead of someone else controlli ng the situation." Seagrave and.his wife, Mary, have three children. One attending Eastern Washington University, one at Wash- ington State University and one is a senior at Medical Lake High School. Seagrave teaches at Deep Creek Hutterian School. He is running unopposed this term. Music will be provided by "Ramjet." Admission is $1. Refreshments will be provided by the Kiwanis Club. The dance is for high school students only. not repeated," according to State in the memo. At 10:38 p.m., the County Sheriff's officer called emergency dispatchers and requested a cross street reference for the area of the incident, said State. "This transmission was overheard by the Medical Lake officer who immedi- ately phoned the radio dispatcher to obtain details on the complaint. The Medical Lake officer then proceeded to the area of the incident, attempted to locate the car, and made contact with the (complainant)," said State. The second caller on the incident provided police with a license number for the vehicle, and a person identified as a passenger in the vehicle has given police a statement. "The driver has not yet been contac- ted, however, a photographic lineup is being arranged to positively identify the driver by witnesses. He will then be charged with reckless driving and malicious mischief," according to State's memo. In answering the complaint about the lengthy response time, State did note that an hour and 15 minute gap had Pat Bale occurred. "If the incident had not been referred to the Washington State Patrol original- ly, whose radio we do not monitor, the driver may have been arrested that evening. "If a message had been left on the department (phone) recorder, response would have been quicker," he added. Officers frequently monitor the answer- ing machine to check for calls. Medical Lake residents who call the Police Department with an emergency and receive the recorder should first determine the seriousness of their situation, said State. If the situation is potentially life- threatening callers should dial 911. If the situation is a (felony) crime in progress or is not life-threatening but potentially dangerous the Crime Check number should be used, he said. In any situation a message can be left on the police recorder to ensure the call will be received and responded to, State added. Bale passes insurance examination Pat Bale, of Medical Lake, passed her state insurance exam and will be working for I.A. Cunningham and Associates Insurance in.Medical Lake. .Shi sfiid working with the agency is a learning experience, putting practical use to the school work. Bale said she hopes to eventually cover all lines of insurance. Wyer graduates Weekly events Sept. 12 Immunization Clinic--2 to 4 p.m., Theresa Sue Stearns of Medical Lake married Douglas E.

IIII m Couple unites Theresa and Douglas Animal Control office ended Among items on the City Council's agenda for their regular session Sept. 3 was the abolishment of the Animal Control Officer. The City Council has decided to relieve the Animal Control Officer of his duties of skunk control. They decided to provide the community with traps furnished by the Police Depart- ment. Chief of Police Don State said the procedure has not been completely worked out yet, it will depend a lot on the weather as skunks hibernate. City Administrator Tom Bumgarner said traps will be available at the Police Department for a deposit and the resident will be given full instructions on use of the trap. The City plans to provide citizens with a place for dis- posal of the animals. As of yet, State commented, the full procedure has not been set up. A resolution was passed by the Council during the meeting. Resolution No. 154, stating the Cheney Free Press to be the official newspaper of general circulation for the City of Medical Lake. Also discussed were unofficial bids for a new fire truck. Bumgarner said the Council will make recommenda- tions for purchase of a new fire truck at the next City Council meeting. Bids discussed ranged from one hundred and thirty to one hundred and sixty thou- sand dollars. The last item brought to the attention of the members was a success report by the Public Safety Committee on street improvement. The committee stated street repair for 1985 has been com- pleted with the resurfacing of 7,868 feet of street with one inch of asphalt.
