June 21: Upcoming Mukilteo City Council Meeting

MUKILTEO, Wash., June 18, 2022 – For its 6 p.m. June 21 REGULAR MEETING, the Mukilteo City Council will discuss/vote on the following agenda items:

International Residential Code (IRC) Amendment Fence Permit Exemption (AB22-086 & ORD 1466)

Before 2016, only fences over seven feet in height required a building permit. Staff believes the 2016 amendment was only intended to require a building permit for fences taller than six feet, to promote consistency with the City’s zoning code’s residential fence height requirements. The 2016 building code amendment was never implemented following adoption, further indicating the 2016 amendment was not intended to require building permits for all fences in residential situations. If Ordinance 1466 should pass, it would correct this inadvertent and unintended building code amendment from 2016.

2022 Pavement Preservation Construction Contract Award and Consultant Agreement Approval (AB22-090)

Council MOTION to approve:

  • Award a contract for 2022 Pavement Repair to Quilceda Paving & Construction, Inc. in the amount of $211,900.00, which includes Washington State use tax.
