ML approves new firing range contract


The Medical Lake City Council held a quick meeting Tuesday, Sept. 17, approving a handful of items in 15 minutes.

Among the items passed included a contract with the Washington State Department of Corrections for use of the city’s firing range. Specifically, the corrections center in Airway Heights would be using the range for training in 2014.

The City Council also approved an update to the maintenance supervisor job description. Current supervisor Dan Dorshorst is retiring at the end of the month. The description hasn’t been updated in some time, since Dorshorst first stepped in to the position.

Another item passed at the meeting included acceptance of donations in memory of Alta Mae “Sandy” King-Hunt.

The City Council, police and fire departments awarded Scott Bremer the Citizen Life Safety Award for his part in saving the lives of his neighbors in November last year, when a fire broke out on their property. Bremer had numerous people in the audience to support him as he received the award.

At the conclusion of the meeting, the City Council held an executive session to discuss real estate acquisition and a collective bargaining issue. The next City Council meeting will be Tuesday, Oct. 1, at 6:30 p.m. in the council chambers.
