NHUAC Is Baaaack!!! NHUAC’s first meeting since February will be held Thursday, October 8th at 7 pm. It is going to be a virtual meeting via Zoom so it will be different, but the goal will be the same: To provide an opportunity to be informed, involved, and heard about issues affecting North Highline.

COVID-19 has changed our lives. We have been staying home to stay safe. Meanwhile, what has been happening in White Center, Top Hat, Boulevard Park, other North Highline neighborhoods? What is about to happen? To help us catch up and prepare, NHUAC’s October 8th meeting will focus on our first responders.

Have you ever called 911 because of a fire or medical emergency? If so, you know how important the North Highline Fire District is to our community. Assistant Chief Ray Pettigrew will discuss NHFD and ballot measure NHFD Proposition No. 1 to continue the Benefit Charge.

The climate around policing has gotten intense. King County’s response requires our serious consideration. If Charter Amendment No. 5 passes, voters will give up their right to vote for Sheriff. According to the King County Elections website, “The next sheriff would be appointed by the county executive and confirmed by the county council.” Charter Amendment No. 6 would transfer much of the Sheriff’s control over KCSO to the King County Executive (currently Dow Constantine) and the King County Council.

Sheriff Mitzi Johanknecht will discuss these issues and others specific to North Highline. We will also be joined by Chief Jesse Anderson, who recently left Precinct 4 to become head of the Patrol Operations Division. Major Jeffrey Flohr, Precinct 4’s new Commander; Manny Apostol, KCSO’s new Community Engagement Specialist; and last, but certainly not least, Deputy Bill Kennamer will also join us.

Knowledge is power.

Do not miss this chance to learn and help make North Highline a safer place!

  1. Handing over control of the KCSO to politicians is an extremely bad idea! Just look at Seattle City Council is doing to SPD! Sheriffs are elected (not appointed) nationwide for a reason!

  2. Good Morning,
    It’s Fri. Oct. the 9th.
    How did the meeting go?
    I wanted to attend this meeting, via dial-up
    on my home phone, as I do not have the internet
    available to me.
    I tried the telepnone number listed above four times.
    Aparently that listed phone number is long distance
    for me. I live only a mile from downtown White Center.
    I chose to not spend a few hours on a long distance
    phone call as the charges would be exsorbently high.
    In the future could you please continue to have a
    dial-up telephone option to attend the NHUAC meetings
    BUT please provide a local telephone number to access
    those meeting..
    Thank you very much.

  3. Story later tonight. Meeting went well, congrats to NHUAC on going digital!

  4. Hello, glad you asked about the meeting. Hope you are checking out the great coverage that Tracy of White Center Now has posted from the meeting. The Zoom #
    Dial-in: 253 215 8782 is not long distance, it is the Tacoma area, so you should be able to call in, maybe your phone just requires you to put the 253 in with all of the numbers, or possibly a “1” in front.
    Thanks ! NUAC Secretary, Pat
