So far, I have confirmation that reps from the Health Department, Tacoma Public Utilities, as well as interested residents will be in attendance tonight. Still no word back from city council members (I guess a few of them are out of town) or staff. Metro Parks board members, Ryan Mello and Victoria Woodards have indicated they will try to make it after their Metro Parks meeting.
See you tonight!
