In the wake of Hurricane Irene:
What has Mayor Harding and the Yelm City Council done to inform, educate and work to protect citizens, constituents, friends and neighbors for a crisis?
Mayor Harding returned with city staff from a seminar back East on emergency preparedness and wrote a glowing column on the session in his monthly newspaper report earlier this summer, yet the public has seen, heard, or experienced nothing since.
Was this just another of the city’s good intentions that made good print, yet fell to the “back-burner” once city staff reached Sea-Tac Airport’s Baggage Claim on arrival home from the session?
Remember, we’re prone to earthquakes here, which provide little to no warning as compared to an East Coast hurricane!
While the City of Yelm does little to nothing to communicate preparedness with their constituents, Thurston County continues to cover this topic with their Yelm area citizens by offering another “Map Your Neighborhood” event September 12th in Olympia.
