Council holds off on renewing liquor license
The Sunnyside City Council Monday night opted to hold off on
approving a liquor license renewal request.
Mayor Ed Prilucik said Council needs more information on a
liquor license renewal request from Ricos Tacos Guadalajara, 809 Yakima Valley
Highway, before it could grant its approval.
Council did grant the liquor license renewal requests from
Playa Azul Sports Bar, 627 East Edison Avenue; Mariscos Playa Azul Restaurant,
633 East Edison Avenue; and El Senor Camaron, 1501 Yakima Valley Highway.
Council to begin collective bargaining process with police
Sunnyside City Manager Bob Stockwell informed the City
Council Monday night that the Sunnyside Police Officers Guild had contacted him
to begin contract negotiations for 2005.
Stockwell said he wanted to meet with Council in executive
session to discuss the initial strategy the city is taking in contract
negotiations. Council did meet in executive session on Monday night to discuss
the initial strategy the city will be taking in contract negotiations, but
released no details.
The city and the police guild are scheduled to hold their
first talks on Tuesday, Nov. 16.
Under an ordinance the City Council adopted earlier this
year, the city will release all details of collective bargaining sessions with
city employees' unions to the public in open session with the exception of the
initial strategy discussion.
