AN ORDINANCE authorizing the county executive to execute an interlocal agreement between King County and the cities of Burien, Des Moines, Normandy Park and SeaTac for stormwater education in the Highline Public School District.

STATEMENT OF FACTS:

1.  In 2018, the city of Burien received a Washington state Department of Ecology grant for the purpose of implementing an annual sixth grade, hands-on, interactive stormwater education program called StormFest for the Highline Public School District.

2.  Staff from the cities of Burien, Des Moines, Normandy Park and SeaTac and King County, and their partners Futurewise and the Environmental Science Center, worked to make the two-day event a learning event for over one thousand two hundred sixth grade students from the Highline Public School District.  The event was hosted twice in 2018.  Beginning in 2019, the StormFest event will be held annually in the spring.

3.  The Highline Public School District serves approximately eighteen thousand students in grades K-12 in the communities of Burien, Des Moines, Normandy Park, SeaTac and unincorporated King County.  Highline Public Schools has a rich cultural and linguistic diversity among its students.  During the 2018 StormFest, nearly half of students attending came from families in which English was not the primary language spoken in their homes.

4.  The StormFest program for sixth graders of the Highline School District assists the cities of Burien, Des Moines, Normandy Park and SeaTac and unincorporated King County in meeting the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System permit requirements for education and outreach and designing programs and creating opportunities for the public, including overburdened communities, to participate.

5.  The first StormFest to be governed by this interlocal agreement will be held in 2020 and program will expire in 2024, unless amended by the parties.

                     BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KING COUNTY:

                     SECTION 1.  The county executive is authorized to execute an agreement, substantially in the form of Attachment A to this ordinance, with the cities of Burien, Des

Moines, Normandy Park and SeaTac for stormwater education in the Highline Public School District.
