Update on Partial Operations Closure for Friday, Aug. 16

Update regarding the Puyallup Tribe’s Eastside Tacoma shutdown:

On Thursday, Tribal Police received a report of suspicious behavior near the Tribal Administration Building on Portland Avenue. Based on a recommendation from Tribal Police and in light of recent violence in Eastside Tacoma, Tribal Council decided on the partial closure out of caution. Most Tribal operations on Eastside Tacoma remained closed Friday and are expected to reopen as normal on Monday. Essential services have continued to operate, including Tribal Police, security and elder care.
