As many of you may have noticed, I have not had time to post as many stories as usual.  Life is pretty hectic right now and that trend may need to continue for a time. If anyone has an announcement or statement to share, I'm happy to use this space for that kind of community connection. I'll continue to post council meeting agendas and community events as I have time. Please email me with news or comments at Thanks!

Another Sewer Rate Increase

Ruston officials will consider passing along a sewer rate increase to its customers that hit from Tacoma on January 1st. First reading of the proposal is scheduled for the council meeting tonight. This increase comes on the heels of a major increase for rate payers last year as the sewer replacement loan repayment began.

Commencement Building Converting to Condos

The News Tribune is reporting (article here) that the Commencement building with existing apartment leases is converting back to condos as originally designed. The project recently changed owners and the new group decided the market was strong enough. Point Ruston's new condo building is also highlighted in the article. All good signs for Ruston's future
