PaRe 8 - The lssaquah Press, Wednesday, February 2, 1983 Hired Colin Quinn is the city's new permit coordinator in the planning department. Quinn worked for two years in the King County Building and Land Development Divi- sion and two years in the private sector reviewing land use proposals. He will represent the city on the new Development Commis- sion, which will start meeting in February. The Development and Policy Planning Commissions were recently set up to take the place of the old Plan- ning and Design Com- missions. High school fence... Continued from Page 1 outside of the track was presented to the school board in July, 1981. This is still a usable plan and depending on labor and materials, the cost is between $3,000 and $7,000. The primary function of that fence, however, is to protect the football/soccer field." Dr. Bob Wendel, the parent of a child at Pine Lake Junior High and a doctor of sports medicine, took issue with that state- ment at last week's board meeting, saying, "The primary function of the school district is not to protect the football field, but to protect kids." Earle Smith, another parent, pointed out that The Athletic Congress would not sanc- tion the lssaquah High track for its meets because of the fence and that KingCo coaches were also hesitant to send athletes to the facility. He also said liability to the district was very great and "if you have a problem out there, you're gonna be hanging out a mile." In his report, Galloway had recom- mended the baseball field be the first priori- ty for improvements, at a cost of $78,000 for improved drainage, $85,000 for lighting and $4,000 for additional seating. Board member Karen TaYlor Sherman said, however, that "in prioritizing projects, safety should be of primary concern. Either we do something about this (fence) or we shut down the track, l don't think it's worth the risk to children." Board member Gary Raid said, "They've been here before. Let's get a plan to move that sucker and get on with it." Board members were enraged at the per- sonal accusations against Galloway, however. Mary Scott told Moore, "You have lost any personal respect I ever had for you." Tom McLaughlin called Galloway "a dedicated public servant" and snapped, "I don't feel threatened. ! don't intimidate worth a darn." After some debate, the board voted to allow the fence to be moved to the outside of the track, but did not authorize the district to spend any money on the project, which would cost about $3,000 in materials and another $4,000 in labor. Superintendent Cliff Johnson said he was "very positive" there is no money in the general fund budget to take care of the fence, but that he hoped tile community would pay to literally cut down the fence and move it and then volunteer labor to in- stall it. Earle Smith of the lssaquah Gliders Youth Track Club said he was sure the money could be raised from the club and possibly the Issaquah High Boosters and that volunteer labor would be no problem. "All we wanted in the first place was to get the fence moved," said Smith. "We told you two years ago we could give money and manpower to move it. We're right back where we started."
