Lacey history – this week 1975

November 16th, 2015 by Ken

The Lacey City Council is considering adopting two new taxes to balance its 1976 budget.   A LID (Limited Improvement District) to fund sewer and water line extension has drawn the support of the Council.   Also under consideration and nearing approval is a Business and Occupation (B&O) tax.

The City of Lacey and Lacey Fire District 3 have agreed upon a new fire service contract for the city which calls for a fee of $180,000 for fire service in 1976.   This was a negotiated agreement after both sides were far apart in initial bargaining – – and came after a three-hour closed door bargaining session.

The City of Lacey and the North Thurston School School District  have created a special task force to look at locating  a community sports complex somewhere in the Lacey area.   While no firm plans have yet been developed the complex would require about 40 acres.   St. Martin’s College has expressed an interest in being involved in that process.  Timberline High School Principal Art Getchman is chairing the task force.
