A. On Wednesday, August 9, the Yelm City Council approved Ordinance #853 amending YMC 2.04 by changing City Council meeting days from Wednesday to Tuesday and Study Session Days from Thursday to Wednesday. This is to accommodate the Nisqually Valley News (NVN) printing schedule so that City Council news items can be communicated with the local community in a more timely manner for that same week’s NVN edition.
B. Additionally, the NVN and sister newspapers finally have a website with links to their full articles. This writer welcomes them to the computer age and welcomes the opportunity this blog and all readers will now have to link access for their stories. One must be a paid subscriber to the print edition in order to receive a password for computer access to the full site.
