Kirkland’s Compliance with the law is based on Complaints.
I recently requested service from Kirkland. I didn’t get it. I was advised that in order for the City to investigate compliance with its laws, I would have to complain.
Staff is not doing its job to enforce the many laws the Council have passed but don’t enforce until a complaint is filed. Instead of Staff checking compliance, apparently all of Kirkland’s citizens must become squealers. Staff, not citizens should enforce what the Council adopted. Council should stop passing laws that requires citizens to become squealers to be enforcers.
