Everett, WA Updates and Blog Redesign

Sorry for the up and down over the last few days, I think we’ve got most of the updates done and I hope you will enjoy the site and let others know that we have things here that you probably won’t find anywhere else. Speaking of that, here are a few updates that I haven’t been able to post due to the down-time for the upgrade.

Everett Cable Subscribers will save $1.00 a month beginning July 1st. After a lot of deliberation, the Everett City Council has decided to stop collecting the PEG fee from Comcast and Frontier for at least the next year. They also vetoed the Request For Proposal to buy nearly half a million dollars in equipment for Everett TV. The city of Everett administration and council are going to work together on defining the role and scope of Everett TV, what it should broadcast and how to pay for its operation. Once they do that, they’ll have more than 1.7 million dollars in the budget to get the ball re-started. The fee could re-appear in some form or another once all those decisions have been made.

No Raises for Mayor or City Council this year or next. The Everett Citizen’s Commission on Salaries of Elected Officials has set the salary schedule thru 2013. No raises for the Mayor or City Council members in 2011 or 2012 and in 2013 there would only be a raise if the Consumer Price Index moved up. For the City of Everett’s Municipal Court Judges, their pay is tied to that of Washington State District Court Judges. The City of Everett has provided the full salary schedule here.

“Charity Not Charlie” campain still going thru the end of the month. In 10 Days, Charlie Sheen’s My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Death is Not an Option Tour will hit Everett. RelyLocal Everett-Mukilteo is still encourgaing people to donate to the charity of their choice instead of spending money to see Charlie Sheen. At the end of the month, one person’s name will be drawn and a donation of $100.00 will be made to that person’s chosen charity.
