07/02/2019 MINUTES 1 <br />COMMISSIONERS' MINUTES KITTITAS COUNTY, WASHINGTON COMMISSIONERS AUDITORIUM SPECIAL MEETING <br /> TUESDAY 2:00 P.M. JULY 2, 2019 <br />Board members present: Chairman Cory Wright; Vice-Chairman Brett <br />Wachsmith and Commissioner Laura Osiadacz. <br /> <br />Others: Julie Kjorsvik, Clerk of the Board; Mark Cook, Public Works <br />Director/Interim Engineer; and approximately 12 members of the <br />public. <br /> PUBLIC HEARING FISH LEASE PUBLIC WORKS <br /> <br />At 2:00 p.m. CHAIRMAN WRIGHT opened a Public Hearing to consider a <br />Lease with FISH for the Elmview Building and Lot C-30 of the <br />Kittitas County Airport Amended Binding Site Plan. <br /> MARK COOK, PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTOR/INTERIM ENGINEER reviewed <br />information for a proposed Lease with FISH for the Elmview Building <br />and Lot No. C-30 of the Kittitas County Airport Amended Binding Site <br />Plan.
