Here’s a look at what the Kitsap County Board of Commissioners will be tackling this week:

Monday, March 22:

2 p.m.: The board will hold an executive session to discuss existing litigation.

2:15 – 2:45: Risk Pool Discussion

2:45 – 3:15: President’s Hall and 4-H and Parks Openings

3:15 – 3:45: Legislative Update

3:45 – 4: Economic Stimulus Update

4 – 4:30: Closed session regarding Collective Bargaining

4:30 – 6:  Budget Update

Commissioners have a regular meeting starting at 7 p.m. The board will start the meeting with employee awards; a presentation by Capt. Jonathan Thomas about the Northwest Schooner Society’s the Schooner Lavegro — commissioners could vote to make the schooner the official Tall Ship of Kitsap; they’ll accept two sailboats from the Kitsap Sailing and Rowing Foundation; and hear an update on the 2010 Census.

They’ll vote on a contract amendment with BCRA architecture firm to provide engineering and design services for first phase projects associated with the 2008 adopted master plan of the South Kitsap Regional Park. Total cost of the amendment for the work is $231,483, paid for by an RCO grant.

The meeting will end with three public hearings:

William Palmer’s appeal of a hearing examiner decision to deny a conditional use permit for the construction of a three-story mixed use building with commercial space, condominiums, below grade parking and surface parking is first. The board will not taken comment on this item, it’s for decision only. Chris Henry wrote about this here.

A petition to vacate filed by the city of Bremerton will be heard. The request is for the county to vacate a part of its right of way so the city can use the land for it’s sewer lift station project in South Kitsap.

The last hearing will be on an ordinance that would amend the county’s code dealing with hearing examiner appeals and the board’s involvement in the process. I wrote a story about this for the weekend, it can be found here.

Wednesday, March 24:

The board has canceled its regular Wednesday work study meeting to hold an all day discussion on the wastewater facility plan from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Central Kitsap Treatment Plant, 12350 Brownsville Hwy.
