The Pierce County Council will hold an In-district Council meeting at 5:30 p.m. on Aug. 24, at the Bonney Lake Justice and Municipal Center, 9002 Main Street in Bonney Lake. This in-district meeting will be chaired by District 1 Councilmember Dan Roach.
Each member of the Pierce County Council hosts at least one in-district meeting each year to make meetings more accessible to residents of Pierce County. There is time set aside on the agenda for residents and local elected officials to present to the council.
The Council is the legislative branch of Pierce County government and is the policy-determining body of the County, as provided by the County Charter. The Council has all powers of the County not otherwise reserved to the people, the Executive, or general law.
The seven members are elected from each of seven contiguous and equally populated districts. Each county councilmember represents a district having a population of approximately 115,000 people (as of the 2010 Census) and is elected to a 4 year term.
