Dear Friends

With very hot temperatures predicted for the weekend and through the 4th of July, King County officials are urging recreational river and lake users to use caution and be careful if you’re heading to the water.

Temperatures in the region are expected to climb into the 80s over the weekend, and possibly into the 90s by early next week. Sunny skies and summer temperatures typically draw more people to cool off, but officials caution that regional waterways remain very cold. River temperatures can still be in the 40-degree range and lakes aren’t that much warmer.

Also, as rivers begin to drop in the summer, branches, wood and rocks that were moved around by winter storms are exposed, creating additional hazards.
I just want to remind all water users—kayakers, boaters, rafters, and swimmers— to check conditions thoroughly for hazards before entering the water.

For more information on river safety and drowning prevention, visit the King County river safety web page at www.kingcounty.gov/riversafety.

Protect Our Pets

I wanted to take a moment to tell you about Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC.) RASKC is ready for a population boom brought on by Fourth of July fireworks. Each year around Independence Day, animal shelters around the nation fill up with strays that were spooked by the bangs, booms, and pops of the holiday.

For the third year in a row, RASKC is teaming up with Missing Pet Partnership to assist owners looking for stray pets after the holiday through the innovative "Mission Reunite: Help and Hope for Lost Pets" program.  You can visit www.missingpetpartnership.org or call 206-296-3936 for assistance. 

To learn more about how you can help your pet cope with the noise from fireworks, and reduce the chance that it runs away follow this link.

I would also like to remind you with the hot weather that is expected in the coming days to make sure to bring your pets inside and out of the heat and be sure they have plenty of water available to them.  We all love our pets and keeping them safe is an important responsibility.

Calling District 9 Veterans

One of my responsibilities on the County Council is appointing qualified men and women to important Boards and Commissions.  Currently I am in the process of filling an important slot on the Veterans Citizens Levy Oversight Board. 

The King County Veterans Citizen Levy Oversight Board (VCLOB) monitors and reviews the expenditure of the veteran portion of levy proceeds in accordance with an adopted Service Improvement Plan.  This service plan guides the activities of the King County Veterans and Human Services Levy. If you are a Veteran,  live in District 9, and have an interest in serving in this capacity, please contact my office and fill out an application.  I can be reached at Reagan.Dunn@kingcounty.gov or you can call me at 206-296-1009.

Please feel to e-mail me at reagan.dunn@kingcounty.gov or call my office at (206) 296-1009 if you have any questions regarding this or any other matter involving county government.

Best regards,
