Horne to fill seat


Grand Coulee filled its vacant city council seat last Tuesday night.

The council voted in Mike Horne, owner of MPH Repair on Midway Avenue.

Both Horne and Alan Cain had submitted “letters of interest” in filling the Position 4 council seat, vacated when Erin Nielson resigned after accepting a job in Boise, Idaho.

Councilman Gary Carriere nominated Horne, calling attention to the fact that Horne had run for mayor and had indicated on numerous occasions his interest in serving on the council.

Both Horne and Cain were present at the council meeting and had opportunities to speak.

Horne stated that he was interested in improving tourism in the area, doing more on preventing crime and improving the looks of the community.

Cain had stated a similar comment on crime, and talked about improving infrastructure and simplifying regulations.

After the council selected Horne, he was sworn in and took his place at the council table.
