The Burien City Council adopted its 2013-14 budget on a 4-3 vote Monday night (Nov. 5).

Mayor Brian Bennett, Deputy Mayor Rose Clark, and council members Joan McGilton and Gerald Robison voted yes.

Council members Jack Block Jr., Bob Edgar, and Lucy Krakowiak voted against the new budget, which was approved after a brief discussion.

The biennial spending plan includes $54,195,655 in governmental expenditures – $40,701,290 of which are for the general fund – and $6,452,654 for capital projects.

Anticipated revenues for governmental expenditures total $53,738,550 over the two-year period with the balance paid with a one-time draw from the city’s reserve fund.

Council members also approved a 90-day extension with Harbor Urban to give the developer additional time to refine the design of a proposed upscale apartment complex at Town Square.

    If you want high density apartments in downtown harbor view then you can thank JERRY ROBISON BRIAN BENNETT ROSE CLARK and JOAN MCGILTON. These people do NOT represent the vast majority of Burien voters. They are also the ones pushing annexation They need to be removed from office next November.
