Edmonds Transportation Projects Get Help from Olympia

Governors Signature Now Needed to Finalize State Funding for Edmonds Street Waterfront Connector and Highway 99 Projects

(Edmonds, WA) - Early positive signs for Edmonds from the State Capitol became reality after the House and Senate voted last Thursday and Friday, respectively, to approve a Transportation Budget that includes funding for the next steps on two important projects: the Edmonds Street Waterfront Connector and Highway 99 corridor enhancements. The Transportation Budget is now on the Governor’s desk awaiting his signature. read more

2016 Waterline Replacement Project - Completed Under Budget

This project was part of the City’s annual program to replace and upgrade existing waterlines at various locations around the City that were reaching the end of their useful service lives, were undersized or were unable to meet current fireflow requirements.  Many of the water and sewer pipes being replaced today in Edmonds have been providing service to city residents for over 60 years. The 2016 Waterline Replacement Project replaced approximately 7,500 feet of watermains along with their associated meters, services, and fire hydrants in 7 locations within the City.

On April 21, 2016, the City received four (4) bids for the 2016 Waterline Replacement Project.  The bids ranged from a low of $1,147,401.86 to a high of $1,575,310.48.  D&G Backhoe was awarded the project as the low responsive bidder in the amount of $1,147,401.86.  This project was funded solely by Utility funds.

The project was completed on time and under budget. The project cost the City $32,426 less than the contractor initially bid.  The City was able to save funding by having detailed plans, attentive management, and an experienced and capable contractor. We want to thank D&G Backhoe for their partnership on this project.

The City tries to replace aging utilities instead of waiting for something to break. Doing so avoids the hazards and hassles of costly emergency repairs and improves public health by maintaining a clean and functioning infrastructure system.

Student Exchange Program Opportunity

Fostering Global Citizenship ~ Students gain international understanding with exchange program

Travel to Japan Poster 2nd update(Edmonds, WA) There is no better way to build international understanding than immersion in another culture.  The Edmonds Sister City Commission provides students with a unique opportunity to experience the day to day life, language, and traditions of Japan through their annual exchange program.  For 15 students each summer, it is the adventure of a lifetime.  While in Japan, students live with a Japanese family and travel to see the sights and sounds around Hekinan, Japan.  Upon their return, they and their families offer the same consideration to the Japanese students.  Introducing these kids to each other’s culture opens their world and encourages a global view.

The City of Edmonds Sister City Commission invites students 14-18 years of age to participate in the annual student exchange to Hekinan.  Students will travel to Hekinan for the last two weeks in July 2017 and then host a Japanese student during their stay in Edmonds during the first two weeks of August 2017.  Student cost for the trip will range between $1,600 and $2,200 depending on the cost of airfare.  Hekinan and Edmonds have been Sister Cities since 1988 and the exchange program has been a central component of that relationship.

There are still open positions for the 2017 Delegation – don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity! Deadline for applications is Tuesday, May 9, 2017 @ 4:30 pm.

For applications and more information please visit http://www.edmondswa.gov/sister-city-exchange-programs.html.
