Bremerton City Council (meets at 345 Sixth Street, Bremerton)

Well, I’m pretty sure they have a meeting set for Wednesday, however they still have their September meetings listed online, and nothing yet for October. So look at their website this week to see what the agenda says. That address is here.

Port Orchard City Council

No meeting this week.

Poulsbo City Council (meets at 19050 Jensen Way NE)

Wednesday, Oct. 6, 7 p.m.: This is a lengthy meeting, so looks like they’ll probably hit their predicted 10 p.m. adjournment. Instead of going through each item, I’m going to list them as they appear on the agenda: Application for Special Event:  North Kitsap High School Homecoming; 7:15 p.m. Public Hearing:  2011 Revenue Sources; Resolution No. 2010-__, Development Regulations Update Public Participation Plan; Set Public Hearing for 2011 Final Budget; Presentation: Proposed Preliminary Budget; Ordinance No. 2010-__, Police Investigative Fund; Approval of Prosecuting Attorney Services Contract; Adoption of South Fork Dogfish Creek Restoration Master Plan; Approval of Noll Road Improvements – Amendment No. 6; Resolution No. 2010-__, HDPA Trick or Treating; Ordinance No. 2010-__, Business Licensing and Special Events; Ordinance No. 2010-__, City Offices Hours.

Housing Kitsap (AKA Kitsap County Consolidated Housing Authority) (meets at 345 6th Street, Norm Dicks Government Center)

Tuesday, Oct. 5

1 p.m. The housing board will meet and hear updated reports from the agency’s directors. The board will be meeting again Oct. 8 for a half-day retreat to finish work on the strategic plan that they started at the end of their all-day retreat a month or so ago. The plan is important for the future of the agency, and Executive Director Tony Caldwell hopes to see it become the road map  for the agency going forward. During the meeting Caldwell will also update the board on the move (or not) to Bremerton. An appraisal is being done on the space, and once it comes back the authority will sit down with the city to talk numbers. Caldwell hopes to have resolution on the matter by the end of the month.
