Just got this e-mail:

“The Tacoma City Council needs three additional citizens to help plan and coordinate the City of Destiny Awards program, an annual public awards ceremony which recognizes Tacoma citizens for their outstanding volunteer service.”

Interested? Contact the Community Relations Office: 253-573-2506 or visit www.cityoftacoma.org/commissions

Good luck, citizens.

In other news(ish), the city will host an open house on Aug. 6 to help explain upcoming Pacific Avenue improvements between S. 25th and 17th streets.

In short, the area will get a new street and repaired sidewalks and gutters, starting in mid-August. You’ll only notice the work if you’re a night owl: They’ll start at 7 p.m. and work until 5 a.m.

Want to know more? Visit room 708 of the Tacoma Municipal Building between 4 and 6 p.m. on Aug. 6 or visit www.cityoftacoma.org/PacAve.
