After nearly a decade and a half of little, the Sammamish City Council may finally be ready to address serious storm water drainage issues in the Tamarack subdivision on the city’s west side.
The issue is on the council’s agenda tomorrow night.
Tamarack has been subject to increasingly damaging storm water runoff as development uphill from the subdivision, which is sited on a downhill slope off Thompson Hill Road, flows through the neighborhood.
Sammamish City Council Position 6 candidate Rituja Indapure jump to an early and big lead in fund raising, according to reports filed through Wednesday with the Washington Public Disclosure Commission.
Indapure raised nearly $18,300 from 87 contributions. Fifty-six percent of the contributors come from within Sammamish.
Karen McKnight, candidate for Position 2 opposing incumbent Christie Malchow, is a distance second fund raiser, with $3,641 listed in her PDC filing.
Malchow is fourth at $1,910. Kent Treen, running for Position 4, is third, with $2,100 in contributions.
The others haven’t reported raising any money yet.
Sammamish City Council candidate Ken Gamblin filed his required paperwork with the state Public Disclosure Commission this week, long after the deadline for candidates to do so.
The last day for candidates to file for election was May 17. Forms called C1, C3 and F1 are required for candidacies, financial contributions and financial disclosures and must be filed within 10 days of declaring candidacy.
The Jarvises lived a lifetime in Sammamish. Sally was one of the first people I met. We both served on the city’s Planning Advisory Board, which wrote the first Comprehensive Plan after Sammamish incorporated in 1999.
