On June 14, 2018, the Thurston County Board of Health (BoH) declared homelessness a public health crisis in Thurston County. The declaration was one of the first steps in taking a proactive approach to understanding and addressing homelessness in our region. Learn more about what Thurston County is doing to address homelessness at the links below.
On Tuesday, January 22, 2019, the Board of County Commissioners voted 2-1 to bring forward a proposal for a vote of the citizens to build a new Courthouse and Civic Center in downtown Olympia on the existing City of Olympia property located on Plum Street. The vote followed an executive session where the Commissioners discussed financial strategies for each site. The County anticipates bringing the completed proposal to the citizens for a vote during an August 2019 special election.
During the 2019/2020 biennial budget development process, the Commissioners responded to a business need to separate the IT activities from the Central Service Department and created a separate Information Technology Department. This decision recognized the increased complexity and reliance on stable information technology systems and staff.
On Thursday, February 14, 2019 the Board of County Commissioners voted to appoint Mr. Dennis Osorio to be the new Information Technology Department Director. He accepted the position and will begin in his role as the director on Monday, March 11, 2019.
