Street transferred to town


The Grand Coulee Dam School District board Wednesday night gave a “no name” street to the town of Coulee Dam.

The street, which lies near Civic and Pine next to the tennis courts, connects Civic to the highway and is part of the town’s upcoming street project funded recently by the Transportation Improvement Board.

The school owns half the street, a right of way, and has no need to continue to have it in its possession.

“We are not in the street business,” Superintendent Paul Turner said last week.

The Wednesday meeting took place because the scheduled meeting last Monday was canceled for lack of a quorum.

Engineers working on the TIB project learned that part of one of the streets scheduled for major work belonged to the school district. The district wasn’t aware that it owned part of the street.

The town had requested that the district act on the street question, to clear up the problem.
