The Pierce County Council’s Jan. 14 meeting was a quick affair, lasting little more than 15 minutes.

After the passage of two amendments to the document – one filling blank spaces with names and the other making clerical changes to the title and clarifying intent and purpose in another section – the council passed Proposal No. R2019-165, establishing and naming people to various standing committees.

Doug Richardson, Chair; Dave Morell, Vice Chair; Derek Young, Executive Pro Tempore; Jim McCune, Alternate.
