I’d like to know what Tacoma official has connections to the “beauty” bark suppliers. Recently, crews have been cutting the grass bordering state Route 16, and applying the ugly and noxious bark on the hillsides, near the retention ponds, etc.
What is the reasoning behind this? The grass was cut, but it’ll soon grow through the bark, preventing the crews from mowing or trimming the grass, unless they want to stir up a cloud of bark everywhere.
What a waste of money, when other areas of Tacoma could use the funds.
