City Council to make Klahanie election decision tonight

July 14, 2013

NEW – 3:20 p.m. June 14, 2013

After months of discussion of a potential annexation of the Klahanie area, the City Council will vote on an intent resolution tonight.

The meeting, which is open to the public, will be held in the council chambers, 135 E. Sunset Way, beginning at 7 p.m.

At the July 1 council meeting, a resolution appeared that detailed the city’s intent to annex the Klahanie area and set a date for an election by that area’s residents in April 2014. That resolution was passed along to the council’s Land & Shore Committee for review, which unanimously recommended it to the whole council during its July 9 meeting.

If the council approves the resolution, it will bring an election to Klahanie-area residents, who will decide whether they wish to join the city and share a proportionate amount of Issaquah’s debt.

    Klahanie residents got the chance to vote on this before. Say what you want about how that election went down – ballots were counted and it was decided to voters who voted. What this says about Issaquah and it’s un-managed growth and greedy government is this: Unhappy with an election result, do it again. Are there other election results we can have a “do-over” on? Perhaps if we’re unhappy with plastic bags, council members of mayors we can also ask for a “do-over?” Amazing.

Got something to say?
