Well wishers from the community gathered on Tuesday night at Steilacoom Town Hall (in the Mayor’s conference room aka “the Map Room”) for the first of two send-offs for Robert Drozynski, Steilacoom’s Public Safety Director. The Chief, originally from the East Coast, plans to return to his home state after taking time to visit sites around the country such as the Grand Canyon.
Steilacoom Mayor Ron Lucas announced that Ron Schaub, from Pierce County Sheriff’s Department, will serve as the Public Safety Department’s Interim Director, effective Oct. 18. Schaub, who is “shadowing” the Director this week, officially takes over on that date, according to Paul Loveless, Steilacoom’s Town Administrator. A second “send-off” for Drozynski is scheduled for Oct. 15 at the Town’s Public Safety Building.
