This week in history from The Marysville Globe archives 10 years ago 1998

n Marysville Schools stand to benefit from more money in their budget after the Marysville Planning Commission agreed to increase the amount developers pay for school mitigation by as much as 400 percent. The issue is money to pay for the price of educating students who move into new homes. Currently, builders pay the school district $925 for each single-family home built. Under estimates of the new formula that figure could be almost $4,000. School District officials have often said that education suffers with the explosive growth in the Marysville area. As families move into new homes, school facilities are not able to keep up with the growth. The district uses the impact money almost exclusively to buy portable classrooms, according to Finance Director Larry Clement a portion paid for the new buildings at the high school. Few people argue that the current amount is enough, so at last week's planning commission meeting City Planner Gloria Hirashima proposed a new fee ordinance modeled on one passed by the Snohomish County Council last November. School mitigation fees charged in the city of Marysville are among the lowest in the county, according to Marysville Planning Commissioner George Wilcox. The proposed ordinance includes a complicated formula designed to approximate the cost of teaching a new student. That formula wasn't reviewed, although Wilcox said the district used conservative numbers. "If anything they were probably underestimating their costs." What was reviewed was a provision in the county law that cuts results from that formula in half and then sets a maximum fee at $2,000, both the maximum and cutting in half are a compromise from a committee of builders and superintendents, according to Hirashima. Marysville School Superintendent Richard Eisenhauer told the planning commission at last week's meeting that the compromise cutting the fee in half and capping it at $2,000 was purely political and had nothing to do with the price of educating new students. The commission agreed. They voted unanimously to approve an ordinance that removed the cap and took out the provision halving the fee. Commissioner Bill Roberts, a developer, was not at the meeting and doesn't agree with the action, he said later. The commissioners also removed a provision that would have exempted developers from paying the fee for low income homes. The proposed ordinance faces several tests before it is on the city's books. The planning commission will hold a public hearing later this spring, then the proposal needs a majority vote by the Marysville City Council.

This week in history from The Arlington Times archives

• Lakewood School District Superintendent Kristine McDuffy officially began her new job July 2, but she started it without a desk. "I think they're going to put me back there," she said, pointing to the back of the district administrative building. At the top of McDuffy's list of ideas is the formation of a district advisory council, something that she had been discussing for several years with outgoing superintendent Wayne Robertson. The district council would "help construct a diverse perspective and inform people about how the district operates," said McDuffy. She hopes the district advisory council will include parents, students, staff, members of the community. "If a business person asks, 'Why are we spending this?' these questions and different perspectives can add value. That's what I'm looking to do add value at the district level."
