If it’s Tuesday in Steilacoom, residents are likely to spot crews at work, cleaning up assorted storm debris and doing grounds-and building type maintenance work around town.
The (usually) six-person Cedar Creek Corrections Center crew, along with one Corrections officer, recently removed storm debris and re-barked areas at Sunnyside Beach, according to Rick Creger, Supervisor for Steilacoom’ Parks and Grounds.
Next Tuesday, a crew was scheduled to begin work at the Community Center. Creger noted the workers were “non-violent offenders with less than five years’ remaining on their sentences.” Crewmembers are “enthusiastic and energetic,” he added.
