Town will vacate lease on closed bowling alley


The town of Coulee Dam has started proceedings to vacate the lease of Riverview Lanes Bowling Alley.

The town council voted last Wednesday night to have its attorney start legal proceedings to abate the lease.

The council learned last week that the owner of Riverview Lanes, Sherry Moore, has not made lease payments for three months and that water and electric utility services have been shut off.

The town owns the building the bowling alley is located in and provides utility services. The building also houses the fire station, Melody Restaurant and a closed movie theater.

Town Clerk Stefani Bowden said that a registered letter had been sent to Moore, but the town hasn’t heard back from her.

The Star learned that Moore indicated she was moving to the Spokane area.

The alley has been closed for about a month.

The lease agreement calls for payments of $450 a month from May through September and $675 a month October through April.

Moore purchased the eight-lane bowling alley last year from Pat and Sara Zlateff, and took over management May 1, 2014. The Zlateffs had owned the bowling alley for seven years.
