Each year the City Council establishes legislative priorities that are in alignment with our strategic goals. During the October 10th, 2023 workshop, City Council and Staff reviewed our recommended priorities for the 2024 legislative session. City staff coordinated with our neighboring jurisdictions, professional organizations and the Association of Washington Cities (AWC) to develop the attached recommended priorities.
We invited our State Legislators from the 8th and 16th Districts to join us for a discussion on the City's priorities. We presented our draft priorities for discussion with the Council and provided our legislators with an opportunity to discuss their priorities to determine how we can support each other during the upcoming legislative session.
