Council Wrap Up: What Happened at the Council
Monday, January 8, 2018
At the first regular Council meeting of 2018, members recognized the vision and work of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by proclaiming the month of January Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Month in King County.
There was unanimous approval of the reappointment of members to two of the committees that provide oversight and advice to the Council and Executive on a wide number of issues:
• Grady Steere will continue to serve on the King County Rural Forest Commission.
• Terry Lavender and Chuck Paulsen were reappointed to the King County Conservation Futures Citizen Oversight Committee.
And Councilmembers also unanimously approved a motion requesting the Executive transmit a report that assesses the current use of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., logo in county operations and communications and recommend strategies for increasing the use of the logo.
