Sheriff Urquhart, Fire Chief Marrs, Deputy Myers to speak at North Highline UAC Public Safety Forum on May 2

Information from North Highline Unincorporated Area Council President Barbara Dobkin:

Mark your calendars.

The North Highline Unincorporated Area Council invites you to a Public Safety Forum:
Thursday, May 2, 7pm at the North Highline Fire Station (1243 112th Street, SW).

We are pleased to be hosting King County Sheriff John Urquhart and North Highline Fire Chief, Mike Marrs.

Sheriff Urquhart will be here to take our questions, and listen to community concerns about public safety and the sheriff’s department staffing levels for the North Highline area.

Once again our White Center Store Front Deputy position is in jeopardy, as the special funding allocated in 2011 expires at the end of 2013. Will the 2014 budget include funding for this essential position?

The North Highline Fire District, which is funded solely by property tax money from North Highline is facing critical financial challenges. Chief Marrs will discuss the history of our North Highline Fire District, operational status and future challenges and options.

Also on hand will be our White Center Store Front Deputy, BJ Myers.

Please plan on attending and being part of this very informative and important conversation about life in North Highline.

We encourage our readers to comment. No registration is required. We ask that you keep your comments free of profanity and keep them civil. They are moderated and objectionable comments will be removed.
