FROM COUNTY COMMISSIONER ROMERO’S E-MAILER:
Please join Thurston County Commissioner Sandra Romero, as she hosts her monthly informal coffee hours in Rainier and Yelm on Monday, June 25th:
Understanding the Thurston County Accountability and Restitution Center (ARC) with Sheriff Snaza
How will the county pay for the ARC and when will it open?
The ARC reached completion in 2010, and will replace the current Thurston County jail which has faced severe overcrowding and is worn out after more than 34 years of use.
Since its completion, the county has faced challenges with opening the ARC, and some questions have been raised about its status.
Sheriff Snaza will update citizens on the opening of the facility, currently scheduled for late 2012 or early 2013.
For more information about the ARC visit http://www.co.thurston.wa.us/arc/.
Please join Commissioner Romero as she hosts this informal coffee hour. There is a lot happening in Thurston County and we want to hear from you! These coffees give you the opportunity to talk about issues of concern, ask the Commissioner questions about the county, and share ideas. Commissioner Romero provides participants’ coffee that she pays for herself. She is the representative of District 2, which includes Yelm, Lacey, and Rainier.
