On Wednesday, Oct. 5, the Shiers Law Firm in Port Orchard will
celebrate 100 years in business, and the city of Port Orchard
will chime in on the celebration.
The firm made a request of the city that it play “Happy Birthday” on its clock tower chimes, and last week, the city council approved the request.
According to City Clerk Brandy Rinearson, there is a policy that allows for the city to fulfill such a request. In fact, anyone could ask for a special song on a special date, and it will be played (with council approval).
But before you go asking for some Frank Zappa or Ozzy Osbourne, consider that the city’s repertoire of digital music does have its limits.
Rinearson was not immediately available to provide a list of songs on the clock chime collection. But go ahead and ask. We hear the city is taking requests.
The firm will have a celebration at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, at 600 Kitsap St., their location since 1983.
