Commissioners approve expenditures and requests


The Wahkiakum County commissioners met briefly Tuesday to approve various small expenditures and requests.

After discussion and approval in past sessions Bill Sauters was officially appointed to the Workforce Southwest Washington board. Mr. Sauters is representing Wahkiakum organized labor at the board.

The liquor license for Duffy's Irish Pub was renewed and a temporary license for the Wahkiakum County Fair was approved.

The commissioners approved the contract for an after hours answering service for Health and Human Services, as required by law.

The fair board asked the commissioners to help pay for some electrical upgrades for events this summer. The fair will reimburse the county when they receive their payout from FEMA later this year. Patty Dursteler, the fair manager, reported that the car show at the fair was a great success. Last year the car show only brought in 1,800 dollars, this year they raised 4,842.

Two bids for janitorial services were opened. The bid from a Skamokawa company was the lower of the two bids.

Finally, as the board members recalled some of their work over the last week, Lee Tischer reported that he has had some complaints about flags with expletive words on them. Mr. Tischer said he had to tell them that there was nothing that the commissioners could do about the signs.
