Here’s the (last-minute) notice of a resolution that will be be voted on at tonight’s (Sept. 14, 2010) Whatcom County Council meeting. The resolution concerns the County Council’s support for Senator Cantwell’s request to approve a federal funding appropriation for $16,000,000 for transportation infrastructure improvement on roads on the Lummi Reservation. It includes some what’s and why’s of the appropriations request and why this is (or appears to be) related to the Gooseberry Pt. lease.

It’s amazing and somewhat unsettling how often — pretty much every meeting — there are last-minute items added to or deleted from Council meeting agendas. These changes often do not show up anywhere else, including on the County Council’s website.
