Generally if Marshal 5 (fire investigator) is not assigned, there is no formal investigation. But we’re doublechecking.

Bill. Rest assured no work will be allowed if it will affect marine life in any way. Work permits will give very specific work windows.

I imagine most of the work will be offsite and then just secured to the shore and pilings. Wished they could address that two foot axle breaking drop off that has ruined a few peoples days at low tide. Been there since I was 16 might be time to fix it.

Comment on SKYWATCHING: How – and where – to see Comet ZTF from West Seattle tonight by Cosmic https://westseattleblog.com/2023/01/skywatching-how-to-see-comet-ztf-from-west-seattle-tonight/#comment-2460565 Mon, 30 Jan 2023 07:58:23 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=1055522#comment-2460565 I am able to see it from my north facing window! Turned the lights off in the house and used binoculars. If you find the point of the Big Dipper that lines up with Polaris, at about the halfway point between the two scan down slightly and it will be there forming a triangle between them all.

In-water work windows are arbitrary, for fish protection.

Yes – why can’t they start in April or May?  Looks to be planned for peak usage = salmon season!

It was on the verge of getting bad. As I got off the phone with 911  Bang Bar staff  hit it with several extinguishers which nocked it way down.

For a 3 month project a July start covers the peak usage period there, not the best scheduling.
