EVICTION MORATORIUM FOLLOWUP: Yesterday, Gov. Inslee announced his intention to extend the statewide eviction moratorium, with details to come. Here they are – in the full proclamation. The announcement notes:
The extension makes modifications to the prior moratorium, including:
*Makes minor clarifications to existing restrictions, such as clarifying that law enforcement may serve eviction orders that include findings required by the proclamation; and
*Creates a workgroup to help inform potential changes to the moratorium in the short-term and the long-term, if needed. The workgroup is specifically asked to consider how future extensions could address options to increase rent.
The moratorium is extended through October 15.
RESTAURANT/TAVERN GUIDANCE: Full details of those changes are out too.
NEED FOOD? Free lunches are offered noon-1 pm tomorrow at West Side Presbyterian Church (3601 California SW).
