This meeting was a sad commentary on the local governments.

After two and a half hours of mostly blabber, and upon being asked if he wished to say anything, the County Executive Pete Kremen yelled from the back of the room: "You're doing great!"

Sorry, Pete, I don't think so.

Tonight they decided to meet again in about three months, and in the meantime have committees and staff meet. So they needed a big folderol meeting with 14 Councilmembers, five Commissioners, the Mayor and the Executive, numerous staffers and the public, to do this?

Sorry, folks, I don't think so.

Here is was the official agenda and materials for the Joint Lake Whatcom Meeting that happened Thursday, Nov 1st.
There is also a fascinating 3 page "Issues for Policy Discussion" document, and other material.

Too bad they never really discussed more that a token number of these items.
