The lengthy process, during which officers have had pay increases frozen, hasn’t been easy for either side. Talks between the two entities stalled just prior to September and city promised that if things did not improve it would be forced to enter arbitration — a threat which the Poulsbo City Council made good on during a Nov. 7 meeting.

SUQUAMISH — The Miller Bay Citizens Action Group members voted Monday to focus on three areas of concern and join forces with the newly formed West Sound Conservation Alliance. The annual meeting of the citizen’s group was held at the Suquamish Congregational United Church of Christ where president Lane Holdcroft delivered his “State of the Bay” address. Although weather and a national holiday observance made his audience the smallest in the 12 years the group has been meeting, he said it was the quality of the group’s members not the quantity. “There is so much to be done and such limited resources.
