KENT, Wash. — The Kent City Council at its March 5 regular meeting approved a resolution to authorize a land exchange with KOA Corp. and remove use restrictions on surplus land and to authorize the KOA to construct, maintain and operate replacement campsites for the Lower Russell Road Levee Improvement Project.
The Council also honored its Employee of the Month for March to Andrew (Andy) Martin, a maintenance worker in the city Parks and Recreation department.
