Coming Up at County Council: Meeting Highlights
September 24-28, 2018
This week’s council meeting is the fourth meeting of the month, and the council invites the public to come provide comment to councilmembers on issues of County interest.
Councilmembers will also recognize the challenge some families face when they keep their children in soiled diapers to help ration their limited supply by declaring Sept. 24-30 Diaper Need Awareness Week in King County.
The council will consider and possible act on an ordinance and motions that focus on firearm safety:
• The ordinance will require the destruction of all forfeited firearms under the control of the King County Sheriff’s Office,
• A motion that will establish a firearm safety task force to develop strategies to reduce the impact of firearm injuries and deaths,
• And a motion requesting in collaboration with youth and young adults the development of a report assessing gun violence and steps to reduce that violence in these two groups.
The meeting begins at 1:30 p.m. on Monday, September 24.
