Sequim: Announced public hearing on Wal-Mart will be limited to
only a few
SEQUIM, WA-- Members of the public hoping to show up to Monday's City Council meeting and be heard on the city's plans to allow Wal-Mart to build a store will have to find another way to express their views.
The meeting -- advertised as a public hearing in newspapers and on the city's Web site -- is actually an administrative appeals hearing.
Instead of being a community forum on the controversial ``big box'' department store planned for west of downtown, the session will be limited to comments from four parties who filed formal appeals against the project in May.
``We're sorry that the notice wasn't clearly written,'' City Attorney Craig Ritchie said Thursday.
