Freeholders Get Waldvogel Views Of Publ!C00n00 RiteSr Held OLLINS (A meeting between the Snohomts Co y Board of Freeholders and the public, similar rr|c(y in form to that reported here, will be held for ICHE00ROLET valley residents at 8 p.m., May 29, in the elementary school on Dickinson Road.--Editor) By Gerald Burke Administrative Assistant Snohomtsh County Board of Freeholders The Snohomtsh County Freeholders put their show on the road Wednesday, May 8, in the music room of the Edmonds junior high school. It was a first nighter in reverse, with the public telling the Freeholder board what they expected in a Charter government. Some 35 or 40 people from the South County area turned out for the forum. The first speaker, Levy Johnston, speaking as an individual, recommended appointment of the administrator or manager by the legislative body, rather than by election.

He stated the peak load in each of the three offices came at different times during the year, and the same personnel could do all three Jobs. Mrs. Alan VUlesvtk, representing the League of Women voters of South Snohomish County, read a prepared statement, but felt as the league spokesman, she had no right to make additional comments. The prepued statement advocated the principles of seperation of administrative and legislative powers and the clearly defined responsibility of the administrator or manager of appointing rather than electing all department heads. A five member commission was recommended by the League at the Legislative body. Questions posed by Dick Welch, chairman of the boards indicated desire for a seven member legislative body, elected on a non-partisan basis; appointment of all other officers; civil service or merit system for county personal other than intive department planning council, and a rent retention of the initiative and referen- dum provisions in a charter: ......

Come out and help build a better Snohomtsh County.
