Town Offices Closed:
Town offices will be closed on Monday, May 26th, in honor of Memorial Day.
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. Please adhere to the notices/restrictions. If you see someone moving or not adhering to the safety measures, please notify staff.
Fair Weather Security Precautions:
Spring may have finally sprung and the warm weather has led to more people working in their yards. Please remember to keep your doors secured and garage doors closed even if you are only in the backyard so that your home is not an easy target for burglars.
Oral Board Panel:
An oral board for entry level candidates is scheduled for June 9th. Successful candidates, once certified by the Civil Service Commission, will be added to the ongoing certified list.
Information on the Trackmole program discussed at the Council meeting is attached.
Sequalish Street Project;
Paving occurred throughout the week and may extend into next week depending upon the weather. Subsequent to paving, work will continue on walls, sidewalks, driveways, and restoration.
Lafayette Street Project:
WSDOT scheduled their walk-thru inspection for June 5th. Federal funding was obtained for a portion of this project so WSDOT must sign off on the complete project prior to acceptance.
Streets and Storm:
The crew focused on right-of-way maintenance (right-of-way mowing and street sweeping) and spraying. Additionally, we continued our annual traffic count program and worked with the contractor on Sequalish Street.
The crew performed work along Sequalish Street in conjunction with the Town’s reconstruction project, moving primary and secondary wires. The crew also assisted a contractor installing telemetry equipment at the substation, disconnected two services for panel replacement, repaired the primary wire on Puget Drive which caused last week’s unplanned power outage, and reinstalled the circuit board on the school sign on Old Military Road.
The crew completed fire flow testing in conjunction with the West Pierce Fire and Rescue insurance survey, repaired a water service in the 300 block of Martin Street, and capped a sewer service in the 600 block of Champion Street.
Parks and Grounds:
The crew focused on mowing the parks, activating sprinkler systems, and applying herbicides. Also, they hung the flower baskets and flags in the downtown core.
