A tribute to Edmonds City Councilmember Kristiana Johnson greeted visitors to the council chambers Monday night. In a business meeting that was filled with accolades for Councilmember Kristiana Johnson, who died Monday at age 70, the Edmonds City Council Tuesday night unanimously confirmed Edmonds Mayor Mike Nelson's appointment of Todd Tatum as the city's new economic development and community services director. The council also approved by a 4-2 vote (Councilmembers Diane Buckshnis and Laura Johnson opposed) a resolution supporting its prior decision to approve an interim extension of designated street fronts in certain areas of downtown Edmonds' BD2 zone.
