Commissioners Report

The Wahkiakum County Commissioners had a brief meeting Tuesday but addressed an important topic. In the next couple of months two elected officials will be stepping down before their terms end. County Assessor Falon Hoven and Sheriff Mark Howie have both indicated that they will be resigning. The statutes are clear that the Commissioners have the power to appoint someone to fill out the remainder of the elected official’s term. The discussion on Tuesday was whether to notify the public by putting a notice in The Eagle for the position. Some county employees questioned opening the assessor position to the general public, but Dan Cothren assured them that only a qualified candidate would be hired. In the end, all the commissioners agreed that a notice should be placed in The Eagle.
