Lacey history – this week 1974

September 27th, 2016 by Ken

A mobile home ordinance, which would make Lacey unique among local cities, needs an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).  That’s the opinion of City of Lacey planner Jesus Moulient.  The ordinance would allow mobile homes in all areas of the city zoned for single family homes.   The EIS should be available for public review and comment in about a month.   (The city eventually turned the idea down, but did allow mobile homes in mobile home subdivisions.)

Lacey Police Chief Jim Land defended the use of hollow tip bullets by members of the  Lacey police department.   The furor over police use of hollow tip bullets started in Seattle.  These types of bullets were outlawed by the Geneva Code governing warfare between countries.  Land said no member of the Lacey department has used the bullets.   The chief  also said they were trying to get money to buy “bullet proof vests” for members of the deparment.
