The deadline for Thurston County residents to pay their 2021 second half property taxes is October 31, 2021. Because the 31st falls on a Sunday this year, the law allows the payment to be made the next business day, which is Monday, November 1 without late fees being added.
Thurston County Public Health and Social Services is reporting a toxic algae bloom at Black Lake. The state advisory level for microcystins are 8.0 ug/L and the lab results show toxin levels of microcystins at the sample site at Black Lake are 33 ug/L.
