Dear Friends and Neighbors,
The Pierce County Charter requires each council member to host one evening council meeting in each district, each calendar year. Last year, the 3rd District meeting was in Ashford and it was held in Graham the year before.
This year, I am pleased to announce that my in-district meeting will be at the Eatonville Community Center, September 29th, starting at 6:30 pm. The address is 305 Center St. West.
Hopefully, you will have time to get home from work, have dinner and arrive in time to enjoy watching the local Boy Scout Troop 604 present the colors. The evening’s program includes a short presentation on the history of Eatonville, updates on the town by the mayor and a school update by Eatonville’s superintendent.
There will also be a presentation describing the more than 20-year-old vision of a park at Lake Kapowsin that you won’t want to miss.
In addition to getting informed about the community, you can also bring your students for a civics lesson. A resolution is on the agenda and we will be appointing a citizen to an advisory board. We'll also be discussing Ordinance 2015-45: "An Ordinance of the Pierce County Council Amending Ordinance No. 2002-7, as Amended by Ordinance No. 2014-47, by Removing the Prohibition Against the Discharge of Firearms on Approximately 600 Acres in the Graham/Kapowsin Area of Pierce County."
Please mark your calendars and plan on a very interesting and informative evening. I hope you can join us!
