A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF UNIVERSITY PLACE, WASHINGTON, DIRECTING THE CITY PUBLIC SAFETY COMMISSION TO REVIEW PROPOSED NUISANCE CODE CHANGES TO THE CITY’S MUNICIPAL CODE
WHEREAS, in 1999, the City adopted nuisance-related provisions to the Municipal Code, which have largely been unaddressed in the intervening 20 years; and

WHEREAS, the Council, being mindful of its goals to meet the needs of local businesses and the public safety needs of the City’s residents, as well as to address the Subarea Plan, the Council has studied the proposed changes brought forward by City staff; and
WHEREAS, the Council now directs the Public Safety Commission to review the proposed Code changes and make a recommendation on adoption of said changes.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF UNIVERSITY PLACE, WASHINGTON, AS FOLLOWS:
