Watch Shelton City Council Study Session

[VIDEO] Watch the Shelton City Council’s October 30, 2018 study session.

During the meeting, the Council discussed bio-solids and the use of the City’s Wastewater Treatment plant to process sewer sludge from other entities, the plant’s capacity, the testing that is done before bio-solids are delivered and the need for backup equipment to ultimately protect Oakland Bay and Hammersley Inlet. Last Friday, many on the Council toured the Wastewater Treatment plant.

Council Members also were updated on Access Shelton, a phased plan to improve several streets and intersections in the City over the next few years. This plan includes round-a-bouts on Wallace Kneeland Boulevard at Shelton Springs Road and at North 13th/Brockdale/Johns Prairie, sidewalks on Railroad Avenue west to the City Limits, and improved sidewalks and pavement to streets near Evergreen Elementary among other improvements.

The Council also talked about newly drafted policy for vacating public rights-of-way.

The Shelton City Council’s next meeting is 6 PM Tuesday, November 6th. During that meeting, the Council is expected to approve interlocal agreements accepting bio-solids from Yelm and Thurston County, formally take action on Access Shelton, and possibly adopt the policy for vacating¬†public rights-of-way.
