You may have noticed a new fence going up around the lot behind City Hall to enclose the City and Police vehicles. Why the new addition?
Sadly, we found it necessary to join all our neighboring jurisdictions in adding this level of security. In recent months, we have found people parking in the lot, despite the signs, and lurking around City vehicles. One person even purposefully attempted to impede an officer responding to an emergency in order to obtain video footage.
We are grateful for grant funding from the Washington Cities Insurance Authority (WCIA) that helped make this new addition possible. When it comes to serving you, especially in an emergency, we need to take every step we can to ensure we arrive as safely and a quickly as possible.
