Mark <br />Cook stated that the City of Ellensburg sent a letter of concurrence <br />for the adoption of the results. Mark Cook continued that he and <br />Commissioner Cory Wright received a request from two local developers <br />to discuss the impacts of the study and staff committed to getting <br />them some information that they requested. Mark Cook added that he <br />just received a letter of the City of Ellensburg stating that they <br />were withdrawing their original letter of concurrence and are asking <br />for county staff to verify that it has been completed. Mark Cook <br />explained that he was not contacted by any staff from the City of <br />Ellensburg for discussions regarding this and was surprised by the <br />notice to withdraw the letter considering the partnership that was <br />being established between the City and County on projects. Mark Cook <br />added that he is not looking for BOCC direction this is for <br />informational purposes only. Discussion was held. No direction was <br />given. <br />2019-02-11 MINUTES <br />
