This years’ April (and May) showers have brought out the May flowers – and the tall grasses along the Chief Sealth Trail.
Seattle City Light has contracted with the King County Community Corrections Division for the last several years to mow this portion of our transmission right-of-way, a partnership that provides participants with meaningful work as an alternative to incarceration. They’ve done a fantastic job for us over the years, as they are this year; unfortunately the program got started late and we’re about one month behind where we typically are at this time. Not to worry, the entirely of the trail will have been mowed before the 4th of July weekend.
City Light recognizes that great work the Corrections Division has done in the past established an expectation that isn’t currently being met, and we apologize for any inconvenience that may cause. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we move down the right-of-way.
