New Council members being absorbed

December 30th, 2009 by Ken

City of Lacey officials have scheduled a full council retreat as early in the new year as they could.   The council will meet in a day long retreat on January 8.

Because of three new council members, none of whom have any previous experience as an elected official, the retreat will concern itself with team building and other exercises to absorb new members into the council’s culture.

The Lacey council has never had three new members at one time and there’s a concern on the part of some city officials that melding three new members into the council’s culture will take considerable effort.

Some of the new members have signed up for a day long educational program in February for new council members sponsored by the Association of Washington Cities.
