Port Orchard city council approves committee assignments

City councilmembers approved committee assignments for 2014 during the Jan. 28 meeting.

Councilmembers John Clauson, Rob Putaansuu and Jerry Childs will make up the Finance Committee, while Fred Chang is on the Hotel/Motel Tax Committee.

Councilwoman Cindy Lucarelli, Clauson and Putaansuu will comprise the Utilities and Sewer Advisory committees.

New councilwoman Bek Ashby was assigned to the Public Property and Economic Development/Tourism committees with Councilmember Jeff Cartwright and Chang.

The council also approved the purchase of a man-lift for its “super single” multi-purpose truck.

The city accepted a $66,120 bid from The Fab Shop for the fabricated extension.

Public Works Director Mark Dorsey said $70,000 was budgeted for the item within the approved 2014 Street Capital Outlay Fund.

“The multi-purpose truck hook-lift loader system allows for additional functions and added components consistent with the truck’s original body fabrication,” Dorsey reported.

The truck was purchased in 2012.

In other action, the council approved:

Police Chief Geoffrey Marti said Mike Gordon, interim director for the Kitsap County Department of Emergency Management revised the basic plan and associated city profiles. The plan was approved by FEMA in December.
