County Executive Constantine To Meet With Burien City Council Thursday
King County Executive Dow Constantine will meet with Burien City Council members on Thursday, Aug. 5, to discuss “topics of mutual interest,” his office has announced.
The meeting will begin at 2 p.m. in the Miller Creek Conference Room on the third floor of the Burien City Hall/Library building.
It is not known whether this meeting is open to the public. However, if four or more council members are in attendance, then the gathering will be a public meeting.
Natasha Jones, Constantine’s deputy communications director, told The B-Town Blog this visit is part of his tour of all 39 King County cities as well as its unincorporated areas – something he pledged to do upon taking office last November.
Constantine wants “to get a sense of their priorities,” Jones said, and “to get a look at projects around the city.”
It is his final stop in the Highline area. He visited Des Moines and Normandy Park in July, and before that toured SeaTac and Tukwila.
The Burien visit would come later, Constantine said while in Des Moines, because he already knows this city fairly well. It is in King County Council District 8, which he represented before his election as executive.
He was also in Burien on two occasions last winter meeting with local officials on specific city-county issues.
