Thurston County and Lacey still partners
An article in this morning’s Olympian implied that Thurston County was bailing out of its agreement with the City of Lacey to jointly own and operate the Regional Athletic Complex soon to open at the corner of Steilacoom and Marvin roads.
A clarification from the City of Lacey said the agreement is still in force. Both the city and the county will operate the complex and jointly share any revenue that comes from the operation.
Thurston County did notify the city earlier this year that it would not be able to provide daily maintenance on the facility and Lacey incorporated, in its 2009 budget, the hiring of a new city employee to do that.
