Council acts on grants, speed limit reduction
January 20, 2022
Members of the Cathlamet Town Council on Tuesday approved the expense of extra engineering services for two construction projects and took care of some housekeeping business.
The council approved contract amendments with the firm Gray & Osborne to include project management services for the projects--constructing sidewalks along South Third Street and the Butler Street Parking Lot upgrade.
Clerk/Treasurer Sarah Clark said because of the complex reporting for the projects funding grants, it is essential for the town to have project management.
In other business, the council gave final approval to amending the town's speed limits for SR 4 within town boundaries. The Washington State Department of Transportation plans to reduce the limit from 45 miles per hour to 35 mph from the marina overlook to Fern Hill Road. WSDOT contractors will also install cross walks with warning lights in a few locations.
The council has also scheduled a special meeting Jan. 27, 2-3 p.m. in the River Street Meeting Room to have a workshop on what facilities, signs, landscaping and so on that they might want to have in the proposed waterfront park.
