Know Your City Government Committee Members

Following on my recent post about the popularity among City Council members of the finance committee, here’s the council’s recommendation for appointments to committees for the upcoming two-year term. A resolution on committee appointments will come before the council on Tuesday.

Finance Committee: John Clauson (chair), Rob Putaansuu and Jerry Childs.

P.S. Putaansuu at the council meeting Jan. 12 was appointed mayor pro tem for 2010 by the council.

Public Property Committee: Fred Olin (Chair), Carolyn Powers, Fred Chang

Tourism Committee: Jerry Childs (Chair), Jim Colebank and Fred Chang

Utility and Sewer Advisory Committee: Rob Putaansuu, John Clauson and Fred Olin

Fred Chang is the council member overseeing the city’s lodging tax advisory board.

Carolyn Powers, who has served as alternate to the mayor on the Kitsap Regional Coordinating Council for six years, was approved by the council on Tuesday to be the second voting member to the KRCC. Now that Port Orchard has grown by roughly 2000 in population due to annexations, the city is eligible for an additional voting member on the county-wide board that coordinates on policy decisions. Members of the KRCC, including Powers, represent Kitsap County’s interests to the Puget Sound Regional Coordinating Council. Coppola welcomes having the added vote on the KRCC. “Any time you have a bigger voice, it’s a benefit.” he said. Jim Colebank is alternate to Powers.

  1. Translation for information posted below last paragraph:

    “City because of growth get s wtwo vting seta mayor and Carolyn(caroly alt 6 years)

    HUH? Thanks.

  2. Whoops – now you know what my notes looks like. How embarrassing! In my effort to go more or less paperless, I neglected to erase a few of my notes from Tuesday’s council meeting, which I had pasted below my draft post to keep me on track.

    Translation: Carolyn Powers was approved by the council as the second KRCC voting member from Port Orchard; Jim Colebank is alternate to Carolyn, fulfilling her duties when she is absent; the city, because of growth, gets two voting seats on the KRCC, the mayor and Carolyn (formerly only the mayor voted). Carolyn has been alternate to the mayor on the KRCC for six years, voting when he is absent.

    The sad truth is that I have switched to taking notes mostly via keyboard because my handwriting is so bad, and now with a little arthritis in my fingers, I sometimes have trouble reading my own writing, but usually can make it out. I’m sure that inspires great confidence in your trusty SK reporter. OH, well. What next? Would you like to see my spice cabinet?

  3. Thanks, Chris. Thought you might still have been a little tired and “tongue tied” after your adventure with the SKHS Band in the Rose Bowl;)
    Really do enjoy your blog.

  4. Chris, have you looked into something like Reqall? It’s an iPhone app (yes, I know that means that you’ll have to get one) that lets you speak into the phone, it transcribes your message and sends it to your email account. The app is free and there is an enhanced version for a nominal sum. The transcriptions are pretty good although I have not tried whispering into it.
