Federal Way’s code enforcement costs Kiwanis, community thousands

Due to the unfortunate shutdown of Federal Way patio furniture maker Dave Hamlin, the Greater Federal Way Kiwanis Club has lost one of its major fund-raisers. Thanks to our city compliance police, we have lost between $2,000 and $3,000 of our funding money we use to support the senior center, scholarships for high school seniors, Relay for Life, Special Olympics softball tournament and many more events.
