August 27, 2020
East Sunny Sands beach front residents have been warned to clear their frontages of personal property in preparation for placement of dredged sand spoils, Wahkiakum County officials announced this week.
The U.S. Army Corps and the Port of Portland will start staging equipment for sand placement along the shoreline of Pancake Point on Puget Island as early as next Monday, the county board of commissioners announced Tuesday.
In other business at their meeting this week, county commissioners established a full-time position of county resource coordinator and they approved adding lighting and electrical outlets to a storage shed for county Search and Rescue epuipment.
And thinking ahead to preparation of 2021 county budgets, board Chair Dan Cothren said an upswing in timber markets was good news and should boost revenue in what looked bleak for next year.
