The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Citizens urged to attend city hall meeting


To The Eagle:

Summer is rapidly approaching and the Town of Cathlamet has some difficult decisions to make regarding the swimming pool.

In an area with multiple waterways it is vital, and in fact lifesaving, that children learn to swim and learn water safety. Prior to the opening of the pool, drownings of children were not uncommon in this county.

However we are still dealing with a pandemic and the safety restrictions necessary to prevent further outbreaks. The pool advisory committee would like to see the pool open, even if only for structured classes and exercise programs with the possibility of lesser restrictions later in the summer.

I urge all concerned parties to send comments to the town or participate in the next council meeting. The upcoming town council Zoom meeting with the pool opening on the agenda will be held Monday, June 15, 2020, 6:00pm-11:00pm, Zoom meetings via zoom. Meeting ID: 789 428 4989. By Internet: By Phone:1-669-900-6833, 1-346-248-7799, or 1-253-215-8782.
