put up lights
The city and town crews from Electric City, Grand Coulee and Coulee Dam, will put up the Christmas lights this year.
This came out of the Regional Board of Mayors meeting Monday as Electric City Mayor Jerry Sands said he had heard from the other mayors who were willing to share the lights and have their respective crews put them up in their own municipalities.
Sands said that the lights would be shared, new bulbs put in them, and that they would be up just before Thanksgiving. The lights would be turned on, Sands said, right after Thanksgiving.
Sands had come up with the idea of sharing the lights at the last mayors’ meeting.
gets final ok
Electric City’s council voted to give final approval for the work on the new arsenic treatment plant, upon recommendation of public works director Ken Dexter. The plant was completed last spring but the city had problems with brownish colored water off and on for several weeks. Dexter said most of the startup problems have been solved.
The Grand Coulee Dam School District board approved two hires and one resignation at its special meeting last Wednesday night. Hired were Stephanie Anderson as junior class advisor at Lake Roosevelt High School and Christine Williams as an LRHS one-on-one special programs aide. The board also accepted the resignation of kitchen assistant Sherri Boutain.
