The City of Lacey is governed by a council-manager form of government with seven elected
Council Members, one of whom serves as Mayor. The City operates on a $92.7 million annual
budget and has approximately 450 full- and part-time employees. A full range of services are
provided to its 34,060 citizens, either directly or through contract, including parks and recreation,
planning and zoning, police, building inspection, street maintenance and construction engineering,
and emergency response. Through an agreement with Thurston County, Olympia and Tumwater,
the City accounts for the financial activity of the Animal Services Department and the Drug
Enforcement Task Force.

The City of Lacey reluctantly send only the last names and salaries of their employees. I noticed that there is only one Ahlf listed as a city employee, but the below letter from July 2, 2002 lists a Kenneth Ahlf as city attorney, and Scott Ahlf as an assistant city attorney. Is only one Ahlf a city employee? In a year or two, I'll ask for a more detailed employee and salary list from Lacey.
