+ NVN: Yelm Council Approves Contract for Phase One of New Dog Park

+ NVN: City Approves Three Developments in Yelm – “We, as a city, have been limited by our water rights for some time now, and we are expecting additional water rights soon and that’s why we can now approve these subdivisions and complexes with the understanding that we will have additional water rights coming through,” quoting Yelm Assistant Planner Casey Mauck.

+ NVN: Council Studies Water Reclamation Facility, Park Impact Fees

+ Yelm Councilor Molly Carmody’s Facebook post:

GREAT NEWS!! After weeks of number crunching, our amazing team of finance and public services folks, especially Finance Director Stephanie Dice and Public Services Director Cody Colt, determined that we will NOT have to raise rates to build the huge new Water Reclamation Facility (WRF, aka the sewer system). We lowered water rates by $20 a few months ago, so this is a huge win for every Yelm utility customer. A $20M+ system for no additional dollars from citizens is amazing.”
