Federal Way City Councilmember Martin Moore will introduce a resolution rejecting heroin-injection sites in the city at the Federal Way City Council’s August 8 regular meeting.

The need to act arose after Manka Dhingra, a State Senate candidate in the 45th district covering Kirkland and Sammamish, said Saturday in an online Q&A at Reddit.com that Federal Way was the planned location of King County’s non-Seattle injection site.

“That Federal Way was even mentioned in the conversation about heroin-injection sites means we need to make it crystal clear that this community opposes becoming a sanctuary for dangerous drugs, crime, and neighborhood blight,” Moore said Thursday.

The resolution has already been added to the City Council meeting agenda.
