The Lakewood City Council will hold a Regular Meeting on Monday, July 6 (7:00 PM) virtually. Access the agenda on the City’s website.
The Open Public Meetings Act (OPMA) waiver by the state legislative leadership was extended on July 2 until July 7 for jurisdictions not in Phase 3 of the Safe Start Phased Reopening County-by-County Plan. Pierce County is currently in Phase 2. As a result, City Hall Council Chambers will not be open for the July 6th City Council meeting. For more information on the waiver extension see here.
