City of Burien Discusses Annexation at its First Public Meeting Thursday Night


About 30 residents of unincorporated North Highline were in attendance at the start of the first in a series of informational open houses June 21 on the proposed annexation of this area by Burien.

The public meeting took place at 3.14 Bakery in White Center.

Burien City Manager Mike Martin opened the meeting by noting, “Annexation has been going on for some time. It’s very contentious but very few people know all the facts.”

Martin promised an “unvarnished presentation” and began taking questions from those in attendance.

Police Chief Scott Kimerer is scheduled to speak later.

Senior Reporter Ralph Nichols is at the meeting, and he’ll be posting a more in-depth look later, so check back often…
