The Pierce County Council voted 6 - 0 on Tuesday, June 25 to adopt Ordinance 2019-32s2, a supplemental budget that supports ferries, property clean-up and permitting.

  • $350,000 to the Blighted Property Maintenance Fund for abatement and clean-up activities.
  • $45,000 for a Human Trafficking Awareness campaign.
  • Allocates $490,200 to the Pierce County Ferry Fund for law enforcement services, maintenance and repair.
  • Authorizes $415,00 for the Chambers Bay Regional Park Event Lawn project.
