Voters Will Get to Weigh-In on Pierce County Services Building
Voters will get a chance to have their say on plans for the new Pierce County General Services Building to be located in Tacoma's Lincoln District. It just may not actually count for anything. That's the outcome of last night's County Council meeting: the Council voted 4 to 3 to give voters the chance to cast an advisory vote on the building this August.
Because it's an "advisory vote," the results aren't binding - they don't technically force the County to make any change to its planned course. That said, however, it may be hard for the County to ignore the results. Meanwhile the County Executive will move forward with plans for the legal and financial groundwork for the building, something the earlier council vote approving the project requires.
The advisory vote is scheduled for August 4; how will you vote?
