Odds and ends

Red Light camera – revisited   When a driver is caught on Lacey’s one and only red light camera, he or she has a right to view the video of the violation.  The only problem is that it’s almost impossible to go through all of pages and downloads in order to see the video.  Lacey Police Chief Dusty Pierpoint has sent a message to the private company operating the cameras, that such requirements are not acceptable and changes need to be made.  The company is responding with a new web page, the chief said.

Cost of operating the new Activities and Recreation Center in Lacey are rapidly climbing.  The City of Lacey is searching for ways to share the costs and have asked Thurston County to pay a share of the operating costs.  The county and the city are joint partners in the new facility.  The city is also looking at working with North Thurston Public Schools to see if some joint maintenance work can be undertaken.

A new conference center could be in the works for the City of Lacey.  Under an agreement with Triway, the builders of the Lacey Gateway project, which includes Cabelas; the city has agreed to build a public facility of some kind in the Gateway area.  While this public facility could be a library, a marketplace a theater or any other such type, the general feeling right now is that a conference center makes the most sense.   The decision is far from being made, but city officials admit there’s a demand for more meeting space in Thurston County.
