If you’re not familiar with the inner workings of City Council, you may not be aware of Council’s “pending list,” but you should be since it typically includes a lot of important Kent issues. Essentially, in the course of doing city business, City Council will direct staff to research certain topics. Those topics get put on a “pending list” which becomes a “to do” list for city staff. Some items may take months to complete while others may be done in a couple of weeks. Every so often staff summarizes the progress of completing those items, and I’ve provided the latest summary that was provided to Council last week. It’s a good way to get a flavor of the work that your city staff does that may not make the headlines.
