Mayor to resign


Coulee Dam’s mayor is resigning due to health concerns, he told The Star in a text message Sunday.

Mayor Larry Price was elected in November 2017 and took the helm of the town at the start of this year.

Price had told The Star last month he had suffered some “mini-strokes” and that he was taking a couple weeks’ leave of absence from his duties.

Mayor Pro Tempore Bob Poch has presided over the last two council meetings and other duties.

He will presumably preside again tonight, Dec. 12, as the town council considers several items on the agenda. Those include the 2019 budget, setting rates for sewer, water, and electric service, ambulance service needs and an executive session to “receive and evaluate complaints or charges brought against a public officer or employee.”
