The SHEF Salmon Bake is Sunday, July 30th, from noon to 4 PM at Sunnyside Park.
Pets in the Parks:
Steilacoom is a ‘pet friendly” community, however, please consider whether the Town parks, Farmers’ Market, or concert series are appropriate venues for your pet. All pets must be on a leash at all times and not be disruptive or aggressive. Animals which do not meet these standards will be asked to leave. Also, owners must clean-up thoroughly after their pets. Pets are not allowed on School District property.
The 2017 Farmers’ Market season is underway and will continue every Wednesday from 3 PM to 7 PM in downtown. If you bring an animal, please remember it must be on a leash, under control, and nonaggressive, at all times.

Safety and Security:
If you observe suspicious activity, please contact Public Safety – non-emergency number – 798-4721 as soon as possible.
Public Safety officers and the Chief will be conducting emphasis patrols on arterials throughout Town for the next month. Additionally, stop sign and distracted driving (use of cell phones) will be receiving additional attention.
Streets and Storm:
The crew spent the week crack-sealing. They are scheduled to continue this for the next several weeks.
The crew responded to an unplanned power outage on Wednesday on Natalie Lane requiring the replacement of a transformer and pulling additional wire. We were able to utilize the conduits placed under Roe Street as part of the recent Roe Street project eliminating the need to cut the new pavement to replace the wire. Additionally, the crew installed a new transformer pad and pulled primary and secondary wire in the 1900 block of Lexington Street; performed disconnection and reconnection of utility services for non -payment; installed temporary power for lot 12 on 4th Street; and preformed other system maintenance.
The crew assisted the Street Department with crack sealing; cleaned the boat ramp; assisted the Electric Department with the power outage; inspected a sewer repair on Kim Court; repaired a pump at the Marietta Street lift station; and performed other system maintenance activities.
Parks, Buildings and Grounds:
The Town crew prepared for and recovered from the Farmers’ Market and Summer Concert; repaired sprinklers that are being damaged in the parks due to high usage; maintained parks and grounds; prepared for the Salmon Bake; and performed other buildings and grounds maintenance.
