After a difficult commute – and with a wind advisory now in effect – a relatively quick look at to highlights for the rest of your Thursday:
CANDY BUYBACK: A Place for Kids Too children’s dentistry (WSB sponsor) in The Admiral District is having its first post-Halloween “candy buyback” until 3 pm. Donated candy goes to U.S. troops; the “buyback” incentive is a raffle ticket for each pound of candy, with a gift-card prize for raffle winner(s). More details in our calendar listing. (2617 California SW)
CITY COUNCIL DISCUSSES BUDGET POSSIBILITIES: They continue today. Live on Seattle Channel right now, they’re discussing possible items for the Office of Housing, including exploring a bond issue for a “large” project to build publicly owned affordable housing. This afternoon at 2 pm, they’re looking at items for SDOT, including the possibility of “transportation impact fees” for development. SPD is on the schedule today too, with items including the “gunshot locator system” discussed (but ultimately not funded) in past years.
