Marysville resident Leslie Lauer hasn’t yet made it the top of Mt. Rainer, but she did reach the top of Mt. Pilchuck.

Her husband thinks, she said, that she is a bit crazy, but is still supportive. Her two children are pretty much in the same frame of mind. In any case, city resident Leslie Lauer said she is making a second attempt to reach the summit of Mt. Rainer largely in honor of her mother.

• The union employees of the city of Marysville overwhelmingly rejected the latest contract offer from the city. The vote comes after nine months of negotiations and a meeting last week in which union negotiators reportedly would recommend to members that they approve the offer. City Administrator Dave Zabell spoke for the city’s negotiating team when he said, “We are extremely disappointed.” The rejection means city workers will enter their seventh month working without a contract. The rejected contract would have reportedly given workers a pay increase of more than 20 percent spread over four years. Employees voted 65-9 against the proposal. Public Works Shop Steward Doug Boyle, who is part of the employees’ negotiating team, said workers spoke against the four-year deal; they were hoping for a 20 percent raise over three years. He said he didn’t speak against the contract offer but that many in the audience did: “People were a bit upset.”

n The decision by the state Boundary Review Board approving a proposal to make Smokey Point part of the city of Arlington has appeal possibilities, according to Mickie Jarvill, the attorney representing residents fighting the plan. Jarvill noted that the June 9 BRB hearing had several procedural and jurisdictional issues which could be grounds for appealing the annexation. Jarvill questions whether the same decision would have been reached had the “full” five-member board been in attendance. Board member John Walker of Sultan is ill and did not attend any of the Smokey Point annexation hearings. The decision was voted on by the remaining four members — Mary Hale, Kevin Laverty, Mike Papa and Cal Rutherford. Rutherford missed the May 12 hearing, but was present for the second public hearing and the deliberation and vote. He also listened to a tape of the meeting he missed. Jarvill wants clarified what the BRB meant by the term “as submitted” in the motion to approved the proposal, from 152nd north to 175th, or the area modified and approved by the BRB that added the residential areas north of 175th, or Arlington’s part of the negotiated agreement between Arlington, Marysville and Fire District No. 12. She also believes the BRB erred in assuming the county-approved Urban Growth Boundary can be used as physical boundaries.
