City Council Meeting Roundup | December 7, 2021
Posted on 12/13/2021
City Council

The Newcastle City Council held a regular meeting on Tuesday, December 7. If you missed watching it live, you can always see videos of past Council and Commission meetings, which are generally posted the following business day. 
Here are the highlights from last week’s meeting. See the Agenda Packet for additional information and documentation.

Departing Councilmembers 

At last week’s meeting, we celebrated the work and dedication of outgoing Councilmembers Dave Mitchel, Tamra Kammin, and Tom Magers. Normally, at the last meeting of a Councilmember’s term, we’d celebrate their work with a cake! But, since we’re still meeting remotely, each Councilmember will be receiving a gift bag with a commemorative plaque to thank them for their service to the City of Newcastle. Please join us in gratitude for our three outgoing Councilmembers, who each contributed their time and passion to the city over the last four years. 


Welcome, Councilmember Villasenor 

After being sworn in by King County Councilmember Reagan Dunn on November 30, Chris Villasenor was able to participate in the December 7 meeting as our newest Councilmember. Chris formerly served on the Planning Commission, and applications for his vacated position seat are being accepted through December 15 


2022 Budget 

Next year’s budget was passed as presented.  


Other Items of Note 

  • - Council adopted Resolution 2021-880, the Hill Preliminary Plat, as recommended by the Hearing Examiner. 

  • - The next regular meeting has been canceled; please enjoy a night off on Tuesday, December 21! 

  • - We’ll see you next year, on Tuesday, January 4th, when we welcome three new Councilmembers to the City of Newcastle.
