Construction in Town and Safety Measures:
Town staff and the various contractors have erected signs, barricades, and other safety devices alerting the public to the work and keep people safe. Please adhere to the notices/restrictions. If you see someone moving or not adhering to the safety measures, please notify staff.
Saltar’s Point Park:
Saltar’s Point Park remains closed. If anyone notices trespassers on the beach, please contact Public Safety using the non-emergency number – 253 798-4721. Staff continues to work with BNSF officials pursuing design of a replacement structure. The PRB at their February 26, 2014 meeting approved the design submitted for the replacement structure. No timeline has been established for replacement as of this time.
The Town recently redeveloped and enhanced its website. One of the new features is the ability of citizens to be notified when changes, updates, or notices are made or added to the website. If you are interested in this feature, please consider signing up on the website located at townofsteilacoom.org under “Notify Me”.
We anticipate making a hiring decision for an entry level position by the end of the month with the training Academy starting in April.
