NEWS BRIEFS: Goats to be used in pilot program … and other items

SEQUIM — The city of Sequim will use goats in a pilot program to manage vegetation near the city shop this week.

The city will use two goats, nicknamed the “Vege-lantes,” on Wednesday and Thursday to test the program and to learn how much vegetation can be consumed in a confined area in a certain amount of time.

The project will take place on property next to the city shop on Second Avenue, just south of Hemlock Street.

The public is welcome to view the operation from

10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, but people are advised to prepare for muddy conditions and winter weather.

The pilot project, originally scheduled for last week, was delayed by recent snowfall.

For more information, call the Public Works Department at 360-683-4908.
