Information
Recommended Action
First reading of an ordinance amending Puyallup Municipal Code Chapter 9.20 relating to park hours.
Background
This section of Puyallup's Municipal Code was last updated in May of 2011.  Staff reviewed Park Hours and proposed hours that would be more consistent and more easily enforceable by Parks Staff and Law Enforcement.  In addition, Veteran's Park was added to the list of Parks. 

The revised ordinance was presented to the Park, Recreation and Senior Board at their August 16, 2013 meeting.  The Board reviewed the proposed changes to the ordinance and made changes to the proposed hours at Decoursey, Clarks Creek North and Clarks Creek South.  The Advisory Board approved the Ordinance with the changes by a 4-0 vote.  Both options are attached for Council consideration.
