Due to the failure of the recent bond issue, the North Thurston School Board has voted to eliminate the hot lunch program in the middle schools.  Superintendent Dr. John Gott said, even if the bond issue had passed, the board may have had to take the same action.    Gott also said, the failure of the bond issue passage may mean the district will have to look at double-shifting the elementary schools next year.

In other action, the City of Lacey hired its first  full time Parks and Recreation Director.   Jim Sheler from Albany, Oregon, has been hired for the job at an annual salary of $12,000

The population of the City of Lacey has been set at 10,728 after the city won an appeal which had set the population at 10,100.  That will bring in an additional $16,000 in state revenue above the state’s previous estimate.
