Pierce County Council continues conversation on prohibiting drug injection sites
The Council will introduce legislation within the next month that would prohibit drug injection sites in unincorporated Pierce County.
This legislation comes as follow-up to a proviso sponsored by Councilmember Jim McCune and adopted by the Council in the 2018 Budget. The proviso prohibits the expenditure of funds to any drug injections sites.
The Council is the legislative branch of Pierce County government and is the policy-determining body of the County, as provided by the County Charter. The Council has all powers of the County not otherwise reserved to the people, the Executive, or general law.
The seven members are elected from each of seven contiguous and equally populated districts. Each county councilmember represents a district having a population of approximately 115,000 people (as of the 2010 Census) and is elected to a 4 year term.
