Lacey council actions

June 8th, 2018 by Ken

The Lacey City Council has a new designation beginning in July – – an Urban City.  Now, with more than 50,000 residents, the City of Lacey will be able to deal with various federal agencies for funds, without going through the Thurston County Commission.   However, the city did agree to continue its current relationship with  the county.

At the urging of Councilmember  Carolyn Cox, the council agreed to fly the Pride Flag this week and continue to fly the flag every June.  There was some resistance by Councilmember Jason Hearn who wanted the city to adopt a policy as it relates to requests from other groups and organizations.  The council agreed to start working on a policy.

A recent survey of voter’s views on city parks was discussed.  Some 67 percent of those surveyed thought Lacey was doing a good or excellent job with its parks.   The survey was taken to ascertain voter opinion of a possible tax increase in the future.
