First Pierce County Flood Control Zone District Meeting

The first Board of Supervisors meeting for the Pierce County Flood Control Zone District will take place tomorrow, July 11, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. The meeting will address the district’s operating rules, the naming of board officers, procedures for establishing meetings, the approval of the purchase of liability insurance, indemnification matters, the appointment of an agent to receive claims for damages against the district, public records procedures, and the adoption of the annual budget.

The Flood Control Zone District was created by the Pierce County Council on April 3, 2012 to address the county’s flood control needs. Flood control is important in Pierce County as many of the river levees do not meet federal flood standards and are in need of maintenance and repairs. While our homes and businesses may or may not be at risk of flood damage, major flooding could seriously inhibit our ability to travel. Protecting Pierce County’s transportation infrastructure from flooding will help keep roadways and businesses open and operating without delays.

The Flood Control Zone District has a 2012 budget of $300,000 and will begin working on the 2013 budget this fall.

The meeting will be held at
930 Tacoma Avenue South-
Room 1045 Tacoma, WA 98402.
