The San Juan County Council took two state legislators to lunch Friday.

School lunch.

Reps. Jeff Morris and Dave Quall got together with the County Council for a special meeting today, 10 a.m. in the Legislative Hearing Room, 55 Second St., Friday Harbor.

At noon, the council and legislators went to Friday Harbor Elementary School for the Experience Food Project's wood-fired pizza fair. First, they watched children's reactions to different foods introduced to them by Chef Tom French. Then they went outside for a lunch comprised mostly of locally grown products.

At 1:30 p.m., the County Council was scheduled to return to the Legislative Hearing Room for labor contract negotiations. That portion of the meeting is a closed session.

Open public meeting will resume at 2 p.m. for a discussion of the Woodman bulkhead appeal. At 2:20 p.m., the council will have a workshop on the county budget.
