commission meets tonight
Commissioner for Public Hospital District 6, which operates Coulee Medical Center, will meet at their regular monthly meeting tonight at 6 p.m. in the CMC public meeting room. Among items on the agenda are the elections of officers for the new year and a closed session that relies on the state’s exception to open meetings for evaluating the performance of a public employee.
on city council
Parties interested in serving on the Grand Coulee City Council still have a couple of days to get their letter of interest in to city hall. The council Position 2 seat is currently open and the city has advertised to find a person to fill the seat.
Billing date change
Gloria “Glo” Carroll asked the Coulee Dam council last Wednesday night to consider changing its utility billing date from the 25th of the month to the first of the month to accommodate the way most people are paid. It was referred to a council committee. She also asked the town to advise newcomers to Coulee Dam that the fire siren doesn’t always mean there is a fire, it is set off to announce fire meetings.
Coulee Dam is signing on to get its Shoreline Management Act plan together. The council OK’d Mayor Greg Wilder to sign on and receive the Department of Ecology’s $50,000 grant to finance the mandated program. The grant covers $47,720 for professional services and $2,280 for town expenses.
