A report from engineering firm Gray & Osborne will be one of the highlights on the Monday, June 14, Sunnyside City Council agenda.

Gray & Osborne will provide Council with a report on information gathered from a recent public meeting involving community input for the South First Street road improvement project.

Also coming before Council on June 14 will be a report on the city's water comprehensive plan, including information concerning cross connections. Council will also hear a report on the new International Building Code that has to be adopted by July 1. Councilman Jim Restucci will provide a report on an issue surrounding a law enforcement tax Yakima County Sheriff Ken Irwin wants to put before voters. Council will also consider a street closure request along Fifth Street on July 3, which is being done as part of the community's Fourth of July celebration.

Hand print project to done June 19

Carol Stone will finally see a long-standing community project she has been wanting to undertake come to fruition.

Stone provided Council this past Monday night with a report on her hand print project along the guardrail just outside of Central Park.

Stone said the guardrail is scheduled to be scrapped and pressure washed later this week. The guardrail will then be painted white this coming Monday.

The actual hand print event will take place Saturday, June 19, from 9 to 11 a.m. At that time, members from the community are encouraged to come and place their hand print on the guardrail as a symbol of community unity.
