There are some rather unusual items on the agenda for tonight’s (Monday, April 1) Burien City Council meeting (download PDF here), which starts at 7 p.m. at its new location – The Hobnobber, located at 447 SW 153rd Street:

  • A new issue that’s getting a lot of attention, most likely due to the recent Dog Park discussion – is a new proposal for an Off-Leash Cat Park in Burien. A group that calls itself ‘Parks for Unappreciated Rodent Ridders,’ or P.U.R.R., will be bringing dozens of live cats to City Hall to protest what a press release calls “unfair discrimination against our precious, cute little kitty cats. Ouch, that hurt!” Free Benadryl will be distributed at the door to those with cat allergies.
  • An anonymous, well-placed source has also alerted us that Burien City Manager Mike Martin will bring his beloved white cat “Mr. FluffypuffnSnuggles” to tonight’s session. He intends to pet him slowly while glaring at three councilmembers during the entire meeting.

    Mr. FluffypuffnSnuggles.

  • “The Blog” will be mentioned at least five times this evening, all in a positive light, as in “did you know ‘the blog’ raised $6,370 for victims of the Jan. 28 apartment fire?” and “the blog allows residents a new forum to share their concerns, and we council members read it often and take their comments seriously.” This will provide further proof that “the city doesn’t read the blog.”
  • The council will finally vote on converting the wooden dais at City Hall into one made entirely of bacon. This motion was previously shelved – and actually stored in the city hall break room fridge – during last August’s heat wave. Jack Block Jr. dug it out after Councilmember Joan McGilton complained of “a stench on the council” recently. Block will likely make a motion for the item. FYI, The Hobnobber will serve as the new City Hall while the dais is converted to bacon; here’s a photo of where City Manager Mike Martin will sit:

    I can’t believe the city council is going ahead with this Off-Leash Cat Park, without so much as even ONE pubic forum!

    WHEN did the city ask for any public input?

    WHY is the city moving ahead with this tonight?

    WHAT is the rush???

    AND WHY DOES MY CAPS LOCK BUTTON KEEP GETTING STUCK LIKE THIS?

    This is clearly further proof that this city is run by evil scientists who do nothing more than pet evil white kitties in their laps while plotting the destruction of us innocent residents.

    Hiss!

    I have worked with cats my entire life, so I KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT!

    An off-leash Cat Park will also attract Feral Cats!

    Is CARES going to monitor this? I highly doubt it! It’s likely that I will get called to come fix the problems that arise from this new park, AS USUAL!

    FYI…Feral Cats don’t like cute white kitties FYI LOL so you’d best watch your laps cityfolk!
