[City of Olympia News Release]
(Olympia, WA) Join the Olympia City Council for a Town Hall Meeting on Wheels, Tuesday, April 22, and experience how Olympia is putting sustainability into action.
“This will be a fun and informative twist to our semi-annual town hall meetings,” says Olympia Mayor Doug Mah. “Putting Sustainability into Action is one of the Olympia City Council’s four primary goals,” says Mah. “The field trips will give our community a chance to see first hand how Olympia is moving toward zero waste and managing our water resources in a forward-thinking, sustainable way.”
Space is limited and advance registration is required on a first come/first reserved basis. To register send an email to email@example.com or call Cathie Butler at Olympia City Hall, 753-8361. Please provide your name, email address and phone number, and indicate which tours are your first and second preferences.
Not able to make the field trips? Instead, visit with the Olympia City Council and tour participants at a Town Hall Meeting Open House about 7:45 p.m. that evening (after the field trips), to share ideas about how to make Olympia the MOST sustainable U.S. capital city. The Open House will be at the Olympia City Council Chambers, 900 Plum Street SE, Olympia.
“Rain or shine, we’ll be on the move April 22 to learn first hand about current operations and the challenges that are on the horizon with our water, wastewater, and waste resources systems,” says Mah.
All participants are asked to wear closed-toed shoes for safety purposes and to dress appropriately for that evening’s weather.
Travel to site locations for Tours #1, #2, and #3 will be provided on school buses from First Student Transit (formerly Laidlaw Transit). Participants are welcome to bring their own sack or box dinner to eat on the buses on the way.
Participants on Tour #4 are responsible for their own transportation to the site.
Light refreshments will be provided at City Hall later in the evening during the Town Hall Open House.
