Welcome to a new week City of Puyallup! We said goodbye to April over the weekend and now we are ushering in the first week of May. The Washington State Spring Fair is over. The weather forecast calls for some warmer temperatures this week. I wouldn’t complain if we got a few more rays of sunshine this week, would you? Make sure you get outside and spend time in the warmer weather. You won’t regret it, and who knows how long it will last. Whatever is ahead of you this week, we hope you take the time to get out in the community and check out some local events.
