Have something to say about local government?
The potential formation of a Metropolitan Park District in Bonney Lake, pending the outcome of this April's special election, has stirred some thoughtful conversations in our comments area about the need for and MPD and the risks associated with it.
Down in Sumner, the sale of the Sumner Meadows Golf Course has drawn similar thoughts from residents about whether this is really in the best interest of the community.
Both cities, now no longer served by Pierce Transit, are asking citizens what they'd like to see in an alternative transportation program.
