VMICC Meeting

Most of the Alaskan Way Viaduct will close for nine days beginning Friday, Oct. 21. Want to know how to maneuver through the maze and on and off the West Seattle Bridge? Come to the Vashon maury Island Community Council at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 17. A representative of the Washington State Department of Transportation will discuss the implications of the closure especially on the use of the West Seattle Bridge. The meeting will be at the McMurray School.

In addition, the King County relationship with Vashon Island, will be the topic of Julia Larson, Bong Sto. Domingo and Marisa Alegria. Larson is the lead in developing new programs for gathering and disseminating information to the rural, unincorporated areas.

Bring a new pair of warm socks to the meeting. These are being collected to give to Debbie Rieschl of VIVA, a program providing for people’s basic needs. She says these are really needed for the cold winter ahead. In addition, Emma Amiad will talk about the Social Services Network which is comprised of Youth and Family Services, the Food Bank, Senior Center, Community Care Center, Interfaith Council, Vashon Household, Learn to Earn and Neighbor to Neighbor. What are these services, how can they be accessed, how can we help and what is needed? Come with questions and leave with answers.

Three motions are on the agenda for voting; shellfish inventory, the Unincorporated Area Councils contract extension and the letter to King County regarding the highway five tier system and the Vashon Island Fire and Rescue safety concerns.
