County Commissioners Report
January 25, 2024
Before the start of the weekly meeting of the Wahkiakum County Commissioners, at the courthouse on Main Street in Cathlamet, the room was buzzing with news of the fire at the docks in Ilwaco. The assembly of local officials speculated that the fire must have caused millions of dollars of damage.
During public comments, Kay Walters informed the commissioners that the crab feed at the fairgrounds was a success, raising over $5000 with around 160 tickets sold.
Mayor David Olson was back again before the commissioners to ask for their signatures on a letter of endorsement for the preservation of the Julia Butler Hansen house as a state parks heritage site. The Mayor said that he would be in Olympia for three days at the end of the week lobbying the state legislature on house bills 6262 and 2310. The Commissioners heartily endorsed the mayor's efforts.
