ACC Monthly Mtg. Wrap up…

May 22, 2010

Competition was fierce last Thursday night between local food tastings; politics and our own ACC monthly meeting; here’s a quick update on news from our community and a link to the West Seattle Blog who found a way to cover us and the many events taking place throughout West Seattle.

Lt. Norm James from the SW Precinct provided a quick update reminding beach goers that fires on the beaches must be in containers. Seattle Park’s Fire Pit Beach Patrol folks are out to enforce along Alki.

Car prowls are up and residents are encouraged to call  911 should you see any suspicious activity. Remember to lock you car, remove valuables and take your backpack or gym bags inside or store them in your trunk out of visibility.

Our local author Brenda Peterson brought some cool visuals to our meeting by presenting her story about the Seal Sitters on the new iPAD and read from her most recent book, I Want to be Left Behind:Finding Rapture Here on Earth.

Dolly Vinal our WD Wildlife Habitat Project spokesperson highlighted the benefits of these community projects and asked for volunteers to help with gardens. Tony Fragada provided an update on our emergency preparedness plans for Alki and Steve Richmond with Garden Cycles presented on controlling problem weeds and why invasive plants are a problem. To read more about these topics, visit the West Seattle Blog for a great report.

    I note that the Alki Community Council has, at various times, discussed the off-leash and on-leash dog problems with respect to illegal Alki Beach usage. Since there is clearly no adequate enforcement or personnel dedicated to this ongoing problem, I think the ACC should consider working on getting the City Council to pass a law that allows for the training and use of deputized Citizen Animal Off-Leash Law Enforcement based on the use of video, ticketing, and a bounty percentage for tickets given. Yep, Bounty Hunters would help tremendously and give some folks some employment. A Win-Win!
