This call to action was received by a Yelm Community Blog reader in response to yesterday’s blog entry about City of Yelm negligence of public funds relating to Thurston Highlands, LLC:
“It is now the time to go to the next Yelm City Council meeting and request that the City Close and Cancel the Thurston Highlands Master Plan and return the property to the status of standard residential property located within the City limits.
It will take a good showing of Yelm Residents, followed by surrounding area citizens to get this onto the City agenda.
Let’s have a large showing with comments at the next council meeting.
Next Yelm Residents and surrounding area residents should press the issue to the City Council regarding reimbursement of the funds expended on behalf of Thurston Highlands or replace it from their city salaries.
What do you say?”
SPREAD THE WORD!
The next City Council meeting is Tuesday, May 12th at 7pm at Yelm’s Public Safety Building.
This meeting follows the Citizen of the Year Award to be presented by the Yelm Chamber of Commerce Board to one of the Chamber’s own Board members & Chamber Treasurer Mayor Ron Harding at the Chamber Forum Luncheon.
Cindy Teixeira, Community and Government Relations Coordinator for the City of Yelm will receive the Chamber President’s Award.
John Thompson, Yelm City Council member will receive the Chamber Volunteer of the Year Award.
Looks like these three special Chamber Awards are a “slam dunk” for City Hall – or “outta da ballpark” as we used to say back East!
