n Last week's decision by the state Boundary Review Board approving a proposal to make Smokey Point part of the city of Arlington has appeal possibilities, according to Mickie Jarvill, the attorney representing residents fighting the plan. Jarvill noted that after the June 9 BRB hearing that several procedural and jurisdictional issues caught her attention which could be grounds for appealing the annexation decision. Jarvill questions whether the same decision would have been reached had the "full" five-member board been in attendance. Board member John Walker of Sultan is ill and did not attend any of the Smokey Point annexation hearings. The decision was voted on by the remaining four members Mary Hale, Kevin Laverty, Mike Papa and Cal Rutherford. Rutherford missed the May 12 hearing, but was present for the second public hearing on May 26 and the deliberation and vote on June 9. He also listened to a tape of the meeting he missed. Jarvill wants clarified what the BRB meant by the term "as submitted" in the motion to approved the proposal, from 152nd north to 175th, or the area modified and approved by the BRB that added the residential areas north of 175th, or Arlington's part of the negotiated agreement between Arlington, Marysville and Fire District No. 12. She also believes the BRB erred in assuming the county-approved Urban Growth Boundary can be used as physical boundaries.
