The Pierce County Council is scheduled to consider an ordinance that protects shooting ranges from noise and nuisance actions during an Aug. 13 meeting in Orting.
The Council, which normally meets Tuesdays in its chambers in the County-City Building in downtown Tacoma, holds at least one meeting a year in each of the seven Council districts, as required by the Pierce County Charter.
The Aug. 13 meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at the Orting Lions Club, 19725 Orville Rd. E. The meeting will be hosted by District 1 Councilmember Dan Roach.
The meeting agenda includes the shooting range ordinance (2013-35) as well as an ordinance that makes it a crime to try and identify an undercover police officer in order to avoid a prostitution arrest. Also on the agenda is a resolution asking the Pierce County Planning Commission to review changes to a comprehensive proposal to update shoreline development regulations as required by state law.
