Celebrating our country's anniversary and reaffirming the belief that
everyone is created equal and has the right to life, liberty and the pursuit

of Independence banner at last night's county commissioners business meeting

The public is invited to sign the 'Declaration of Independence' through July
7th. The county administration building is located at 619 Division Street in
Port Orchard, is open 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.
