Coulee Medical Center ER and Walk-In Care

What a waste of energy


Yet again, local cities are forced to waste time, effort and money in a disagreement that wouldn’t exist if they did what may be the logical thing and merged.

Electric City is objecting to a spike in their metered sewage flow into Grand Coulee costing Electric City more than a month does on average.

If the two cities were one, it would be a technician’s problem only, with nobody else even needing to be aware of it.

Like every other time the two cities have disagreed — police services contracts, charges for water or other intercity services — the whole issue would be rendered moot by a city merger that would seem to just make common sense.

And don’t even get us started on Coulee Dam/

Elmer City disputes.
