The City Council study session agenda for Monday (Nov. 27) said that members were to hold a special closed session meeting for an hour before its study session. That special closed session was to “review the performance of the city manager” as outlined in state law.

The actual study session included Shelley Brittingham, chair of the Burien Arts Commission, who told Councilmembers of their recommendations of cultural grants requests for 2018. Each year the commission dispenses $20,000 appropriated by the Council to local arts groups. She said 14 groups and individuals have applied to the commission for a total of $45,000 and the Council approved its recommendations.

The list of applicants was not made immediately available.

Senior city planner David Johanson spent most of the 90 minutes of the Council discussing potential changes to the city’s 2017 comprehensive plan.
