In an effort to involve more citizens in government, the Pierce County Council will relocate its regular Tuesday meeting to Lakewood tomorrow evening. The meeting will take place at 5:30 p.m. in Lakewood City Hall.
“The Pierce County Charter requires us to conduct at least one evening council meeting every year in each of the districts. Bringing the council out into the community gives our friends and neighbors better access to us and to county government,” said Council Member Doug Richardson, who represents the 6th Council District. “These in-district meetings are always a great opportunity to hear from local governments and community groups and I’m looking forward to meeting with folks tomorrow evening in Lakewood.”
In addition to regularly-scheduled agenda items, the Council will hear updates from Lakewood Mayor Don Anderson, DuPont Mayor Michael Grayum, Steilacoom Town Administrator Paul Loveless, and Anderson Island Citizens Advisory Board representative Carol Paschal.
The Council will also receive a presentation on the evaluations of the Pierce County Corrections Bureau’s jail operations by Bill Vetter with the Performance Audit Office. Lakewood City Hall is located at 6000 Main Street SW.
