Community Meetings will resume in 2010

We had a great Community Meeting on October 22nd. Chief Jay Goss and Deputy Chief Carlos Echevarria gave a presentation on a new program they’d like to get started, a Community Patrol, or Community Policing Program. The program is still in the planning stages, but tribal police really need your input to make sure the program is a “Tulalip” program and that it reflects who we are as a people. Watch the See-Yaht-Sub for more information about the program, or call the Tulalip Police Department 360-716-4608.

The Community Meetings have become a great way to not only give our members information, but to get feedback from you as well. During every Community Meeting we have about 30 minutes to an hour where the Tulalip community can ask questions, air concerns or give us ideas about what they’d like to see in our programs.

The meeting with tribal police was the last meeting for 2009. The fourth Thursday in November and December are both during holidays, so we’re going to take a little break, but we’ll be back. Starting on January 28th, 2010, our Community Meetings will resume. The year will start with a presentation from our Enrollment Department.

We’ve got some thoughts about which departments or programs we’d like to present next year, but we want your ideas too! What programs do you want to know about? What programs do you have concerns about? How do we make the Community Meetings more user friendly? Let us know what’s on your mind.

You can leave comments on the blog, or you can call our concern line, 360-716-4006. Thank you!
