The Yakima City Council meets on Tuesday with a relatively short agenda. The council will hold a public hearing on the 2023-24 Preliminary Biennial Budget and talk about the formation of a committee to talk about the proposed Martin Luther King Jr. Aquatic Center. Earlier this year the city received $1 million from the state to help fund the project. Many people for years have wanted a new pool at the park.

City officials have a date for opening

The money will fund the design and other technical issues that will allow the city to continue work on the project. The goal is to open the center in 2024.

You can go to city hall or watch on Zoom

The meeting starts at 5:30 pm Tuesday at Yakima City Hall. Other agenda items include a Small Business Saturday Proclamation and resolutions authorizing grant agreements with the Federal Transit Administration to purchase two fixed-route transit buses and four ADA paratransit vans.
