Spirit of Sumner Celebration

T

he Spirit of Sumner Community Celebration held on June 2 at the Sumner Performing Arts Center was a great success. Sumner students from elementary through middle school grade levels participated, performing dances, poetry, and songs to celebrate the return of passenger train service to the community. The celebration was videotaped and is being aired on cable TV Channel 28 through July 27. The show will air on these days, at these times: Tuesdays at 1:30 p.m. Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. Thursdays at 4:00 p.m. Fridays at 11:30 a.m. & 10:00 p.m. Saturdays at 3:30 p.m.

Banners created by Sumner High students were displayed at the celebration and will decorate downtown streets when the train station opens. As part of the Spirit of Sumner celebration, the Western Wood Preserving Company hosted the Sounder, the new commuter train, for the community. A big turnout of Sumner citizens visited the train from 5 to 8 p.m. Sound Transit was pleasantly surprised at the large crowd and the community support, spirit, and pride in Sumner.

Train Depot Work on Fast Track

G

et ready for the trains! Work finally got under way in early summer on the Sound Transit train station in downtown Sumner, south of Maple Street between Narrow and Traffic Avenues.

The train service between Tacoma and Seattle is expected to begin this fall, with the first train rolling into Sumner on September 19. Sound Transit initially plans to offer two round trips per day, during morning and afternoon commute times. When the system is fully operational, trains will run every half hour during peak commute hours. The ride from Sumner to Seattle will take about 40 minutes and cost $4 each way. At the station site, General Contractor Lumpkin Construction so far has spent much of the time installing underground utilities and grading the area next to the tracks for the station platforms. While construction had been delayed for months while rightof-way agreements with the railroad were being worked out, work is proceeding rapidly and the passenger and station structure soon will begin to appear. Work won’t be entirely completed before train service begins in September, but the station will be operational. There will be partially covered platforms on both sides of the tracks, ticket vending machines, and transfer areas to access Pierce Transit and Sound Transit buses. A total of 300 parking spaces will be available at lots surrounding the depot. The station’s structure will resemble a hops kiln to reflect Sumner’s agricultural history.

Both sides of the tracks are being graded for station platforms.

The City of Sumner plans to improve streets adjacent to the train station. Thompson Avenue is being improved with new sidewalks on both sides of the street. A new road to be called Station Lane will be built linking Thompson and Harrison on the west end of the fire station. This will provide a direct route to and from Highway 410 for commuter traffic. The major improvement project planned for Traffic Avenue will be conducted next year. The neighborhoods surrounding the train station will be significantly impacted by the project and the City is conducting a series of meetings/workshops with area residents to discuss and help plan future improvements and changes in this portion of Sumner. Issues to be examined include parking, zoning, housing and types of business uses that will fit in with the neighborhood character. The initial informational meeting took place July 7. Please watch for announcements of future meetings.

MAYOR’S MESSAGE

W

hen I took office as Mayor over two years ago, it was clear that we had a breakdown in communications between the City and two of the districts we served: Drainage District #11 Barbara and Pierce County Skinner Fire District #1. The City was negotiating agreements with the commissioners of these two districts but people were having a difficult time understanding the concerns of each other in these discussions. These three governmental units have worked together for many decades to serve the people in and around Sumner and it was very difficult to see how frayed our relations had become. Fortunately, we were able to break through those communication barriers and the City has developed agreements with both districts that are fair to all involved and which provide services that meet the needs of all our citizens. We are committed to continue working with both districts to develop an effective communications process and to maintain our good working relationships into the future. The City once again owes thanks to the VFW for their annual Memorial Day Ceremony at Sumner Cemetery. This year our own Police Chief (and

retired U. S. Army Colonel) J. Ben Reisz was the speaker, and the Sumner Rainbow Girls placed flowers on the memorial dedicated to those from Sumner who died defending our country in foreign wars. I love living in a community that not only remembers its past but involves citizens of all ages in the traditions which keep that past alive. I’m sure Rainbow Girls, who have taken part in this ceremony since the late 40’s, never forget their part in this ceremony and what it means. Finally, the City and the Sumner Schools worked together to celebrate the return of the train to Sumner. The “Spirit of Sumner” program, which was developed with 400 students and four “artists in residence” in the schools of Sumner, was absolutely terrific. A video of the event will be telecast for the next month on cable (Channel 28) so be sure to see it. We have a date – September 19th. On that morning the first commuter train will roll into Sumner. Lots of activities will surround this event and you won’t want to miss the excitement – so stay tuned!

The concerts are performed from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in downtown’s Heritage Park, at the corners of Main, Cherry and Kincaid streets. Bring a blanket or lawn chair to sit out on the lawn, a picnic dinner and enjoy more than an hour of free entertainment.

Here is the concert schedule: July 21 Guarneri Underground July 28 Men of Worth Aug. 4 Lee Anderson Aug. 11 Kings of Swing Aug. 18 The Coats Aug. 25 Maya Soleil (featuring Moye Kashimbi) The series of six concerts is jointly sponsored by the City of Sumner, Sumner Promotions Association, Sumner Summer Arts Festival and Pierce County Arts Commission.

Sumner Bike Rodeo The Sumner Family Center’s annual Bike Rodeo was held Thursday, June 22 at Loyalty Park. Hundreds of kids participated as they brought their bikes to the park for safety checks by Sumner Police officers (above right). The kids learned proper signaling and stopping in a special course set up on the outdoor basketball court. Fitted helmets were available for $5 through Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital (above left). Child-safety and health-related stands and displays were set up in the park for children and their parents.

Senior Center Raising Funds for Expansion

T

he Sumner Senior Center has begun a fund-raising effort to help expand the facility by 1,000 square feet. A dance featuring “The Great Pretenders” was held July 8 at the Puyallup Elks, and similar fund-raising activities are planned. The “Illusion of Elvis” featuring Danny Vernon is planned for Sept. 30 at the Sumner Performing Arts Center. The opening acts are Joey Jewell as Frank Sinatra, award-winning swing dancers Gia Storm and Adam Brozowski, and a special performance by Michelle’s Dance Studio. Cost is $15 and tickets are available by calling (253) 863-2910.

The Senior Center’s goal is to raise $120,000 by the end of the year for the expansion project. With the added space, the Center will expand its Red Cross meal program, and have more room for activities and health services. Currently the facility, which just opened in 1996, is operating at capacity. The assisted living residential complexes being built nearby are placing additional demands on the facility. The Senior Center in just the first four months of the year has had 11,488 visits by seniors.

Sumner Relay for Life Aug. 11 & 12

T

he second annual Sumner Relay for Life which benefits the American Cancer Society will be held Aug. 11 and 12 at Sumner High School stadium. Relay for Life is a 24hour walk-a-thon in which participants gather pledges for the number of laps completed around the track. Donors also pledge set amounts. The goal this year is to raise $70,000 at the Sumner event. Last year about 350 participants raised $57,500. The event starts at 6 p.m. Aug. 11 with the "survivors lap." This is when persons who have fought cancer or are currently doing so walk a lap together. Candles are lighted for cancer sur-

vivors and victims at the 9 p.m. luminary ceremony. Relay for Life participants walk through the night and following day, concluding at 6 p.m. Participants form teams and take turns walking laps. A member from each team is walking at all times. Individuals not associated with teams are also welcome to walk laps. Entertainment including live bands and other performers is scheduled throughout the event. Persons who would like to participate can just show up any time and walk laps. Groups wishing to form teams should contact Pam Borg at 891-1304 or Kris Coppin, 848-6661, ext. 2831.

Residents Urged to Return Municipal Court Questionnaires

M

any Sumner residents soon will receive questionnaires from Sumner Municipal Court. Residents are encouraged to fill out the questionnaire so they can be included in the jury pool for Municipal Court.

One of the greatest challenges at Municipal Court is developing an adequate jury pool – a list of qualified citizens willing to serve on juries when needed. The court sends out the preliminary questionnaire to individuals randomly selected from a master jury list provided by Pierce County. The questionnaires are used to determine who is qualified for service as a juror. To be qualified for jury service in Sumner, a person must be 18 years old and a U.S. citizen; live in Pierce County; be able to communicate in the English language; and, if convicted of a felony, have their civil rights restored. Sumner Municipal Court is a “court of limited jurisdiction” and handles infractions such as speeding tickets and criminal misdemeanors like DWI, petty theft or malicious mischief. The municipal court does not process felonies, small claims cases or divorce proceedings. Many people may feel they do not have the time to serve on a jury and therefore do not return the questionnaires. Most jury trials at Sumner Municipal Court require only one day, or even a few hours, of commitment as a juror. Businesses are especially encouraged to assist their employees in fulfilling their civic obligation by serving on a jury when summoned. Sumner Municipal Court is located at Sumner City Hall next to the Police Department. Municipal Court sessions are held every Tuesday. For more information about Municipal Court or jury service, please call the Court Administrator at 891-3310. May 1 - 7 was Juror Appreciation Week, as declared by Mayor Barbara Skinner who requested “that the citizens of Sumner observe this time with reflection on the importance of preserving and supporting this tradition of justice, and to express appreciation of those who have served as jurors.”

Community Garden to Help Feed Hungry

T

he Community Garden next to St. Andrew Catholic Church is appropriately named since it has been a community effort from the start, and will benefit needy people in the community. The Community Garden evolved from the need to help feed the hungry in the community. St. Andrew's agreed to provide land for the gardens and Tahoma Food System volunteers put together the planter boxes and filled them with dirt. The Sumner High Marge Morris of Sumner Family Center waters her agency’s planter box at the Community Garden. School construction class built picnic tables for the garden area and put together some planter boxes.

Area agencies were invited to participate by being responsible for one planter box. Groups who adopted a box include Sumner High School horticulture class, Sumner High School Native American Club, Sumner Family Center, Student Community Service Center, EECAP program, St. Andrew’s church members, and City of Sumner employees. The boxes have been planted with vegetable starts and volunteers from each group regularly tend to the plants. St. Andrew's members took over maintenance of the student-adopted boxes until school resumes in September. Crops harvested through summer are being donated to the local food bank and families in the community in need of food. Some produce is being donated to the Sumner Senior Center for use in its meal programs. Some flowers being grown will be given to the Sumner High School horticulture class which will make flower arrangements that can be used for services at St. Andrew.

Adopt a Pet Through Animal Control Shelter

C

ity of Sumner’s Animal Control Shelter is the place to find that perfect pet for you and your family. You can stop by the shelter and check out the available pets, or look in the Puyallup Herald newspaper for the “Pet of the Week”. This special feature has a picture of a dog and/or cat available for adoption and some information about the animals.

City of Sumner residents are eligible for a Animal Control Officer Ellis and a special discount on pets being held at the former Pet of the Week, Kekoa, a 3shelter.

CITY ADMINISTRATOR’S MESSAGE

A

s we celebrate the “Spirit of Sumner” in preparation for the return of passenger train service, we also celebrate the “Spirit of Summer” and the pace of our work at City Hall continues on a fast track. The golf course maintenance building is proceeding well, and the cemetery office remodel is complete. The multipurpose center Andrew Neiditz renovation is on schedule and the new public works shops should be open within a month. The groundbreaking for the new City Hall is scheduled for late summer. In a recent meeting with the City’s financial advisors from SeattleNorthwest Securities Corporation, we were presented with a summary of our outstanding bonds, and an outline of our long-term debt service projections. In relation to our Limited Tax General Obligation Bonds debt capacity, which is 1.5 percent of our assessed value, we have outstanding debt of $6.9 mil-

lion, which is about 77 percent of capacity. Therefore, we have remaining debt capacity of over $2 million, and are well within accepted norms of other municipalities in the state. Our cash flow was commended as being healthy and managed very well. Our annual review by the Washington Cities Insurance Authority (WCIA), was recently completed. The results of the City’s Risk Profile for the 5-year period 1995-99 are very positive. Of the 19 cities in our Actuarial Category (with yearly “worker hours” between 200,000 and 400,000), we are well within the group averages. Our average claim cost per worker hour is $0.36 while the group’s average is $0.49. A high priority for a City Administrator is the City’s fiscal accountability as well as the management of liability for our ultimate stakeholders – the taxpayers of Sumner. I am pleased that we’re getting good marks in both arenas, and that we measure up well to our benchmarks. Andrew Neiditz, City Administrator

East Valley Highway Construction A portion of East Valley Highway is being rebuilt to better handle truck traffic and serve the growing number of industries and warehouses in the area. The road improvements, which include widening to 3 lanes, new curbs, gutters and sidewalks, are being done on East Valley Highway from Salmon Creek to Elm Street. The project is being funded by the private developers who have property adjacent to the improved segment of East Valley Highway. Work is being conducted this summer and should conclude in the fall.

City Accepting Arts Commission Appointments The City is looking for volunteers to serve on its first Arts Commission. The Sumner Arts Commission was established earlier this year by the City Council. If you would like to use your talents in promoting arts in the community, please contact Taryn Capps of the Community Development Department at 891-3303.

Sewer Back-up Problems?

JULY 2000

8th Street East Road Construction Pierce County is planning for widening the 1.1-mile segment of 8th Street East from East Valley Highway west to the Valley Freeway. Eventually, a five-lane, 2.5-mile-long Lake Tapps Parkway will run east from East Valley Highway up the hill to Lake Tapps. The roads will be designed both for heavy trucks and commuter traffic. The 8th Street East segment will include widening the street to five lanes from two. The widened road will run north of Sumner and through part of Pacific. Improvements will include a new bridge over the Stuck River and a crossing over or under the Union Pacific railway tracks. The new road will connect with the Valley Freeway and Jovita Boulevard in Edgewood. Pierce County, Pacific and the state Transportation Improve-ment Board are working together on the preliminary design work on Eighth Street East. Sumner is involved in the planning of the road project because a portion of the City’s municipal golf course fronts 8th Street East. Also, much of the area served by the new road is in the City of Sumner’s urban growth area. The City has identified the area north of the city limits as eventually becoming part of the City of Sumner through annexation. Sumner officials are participating in the planning of the project to ensure the needs of the potential City residents are met. The 8th Street East project could be completed by 2005. The Lake Tapps Parkway leg, which connects to Sumner Tapps Highway East, Ninth Street East and 182nd Avenue East at Lake Tapps, could be open this winter. It includes a bridge over East Valley Highway and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad tracks.

Call the City first so we can determine whether it's a problem with the mainline or your service connection. This would save you, the owner, and the City time and money. Weekdays: 7:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.: 891-3322 Weekends and after hours call Police Dispatch: 863-6384.
