Earlier today the Olympia City Council General Government Committee (Jeff Kingsbury, Rhenda Strub, Craig Ottavelli) voted unanimously to repeal the city’s Nuclear Free Zone Ordinance. The recommendation to repeal will come before the Olympia City Council at 7pm September 9th.
The vote came after city staff told the committee that out of all of the correspondence the city has received on the issue since January 1, 2004 through today, 216 people favored the ordinance, 38 opposed it, and 28 had no opinion. In other words despite the fact that 76% of the people who weighed in on the issue favored the ordinance, the committee voted to repeal it.
City staff also reported that they had done research to determine whether the contracting provisions of the ordinance were a burden for city staff, and whether any potential contractors had refused to sign contracts because of the nuclear free provision. They found that the contract language was NOT a burden on city staff, and that only one potential contractor (a local carpenter) had refused to sign and decided he did not want to work for the city. In other words, the ordinance has no significant administrative burden, yet the committee voted to repeal it.
