Catchment wall project at 61st to advance
The Mukilteo City Council unanimously approved $87,000 for construction of a catchment wall at 61st Place West. Kamins Construction, Inc, a Bothell-based company, will conduct the project.
There are two scheduled phases, and the first is moving forward. It will put a catchment wall on the east side of the street, which is most needed, while the second phase would put one on the other side, and is less necessary, but, as Public Works Director Mick Matheson said, “Nice to have.”
The street currently has limited access due to a slide that caused damage to the road, so many services, such as delivery trucks, can’t access it.
If the city completes the project by Feb. 28, the Mukilteo Water & Wastewater District will provide the lesser of either $15,000 or 25 percent of the total project’s cost.
Harbour Reach Corridor Project receives grant
The city reapplied for a Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) grant last month for the Harbour Reach Corridor Project, and has received a $2.3 million grant as a result.
At Monday’s meeting, the council unanimously approved receiving the grant.
The project will help connect Harbour Pointe with Beverly Park Road, helping alleviate traffic on the Mukilteo Speedway.
Last meeting of the year
With the council passing its final budget for 2019, there will be no more Mukilteo City Council meetings until Jan. 7.
At the Jan. 7 meeting, councilmembers will elect the council president and vice president for 2019.
Steve Schmalz served as council president for 2018 and Christine Cook served as vice president. Schmalz was vice president in 2017, while Bob Champion was president.
