Possible creation of a special purpose public corporation under the provisions of RCW 35.21

At the Tuesday, September 24 North Bonneville City Council meeting there was a discussion about the possibility of creating a special purpose district to operate a retail outlet in North Bonneville for the dispensing of marijuana and related products. This Council conversation was prompted by the recent voter approved passage of I-502, a measure which allows for the licensing of marijuana businesses throughout Washington State as well as knowledge the Washington State Liquor Control Authority intends to permit two [2] of these dispensaries in Skamania County.

City Administrator’s Notes - July 2013

First I’d like to say good-bye and fair well. You are wonderful people living in a beautiful city – it’s been a great experience working for you. I am confident that Don, the council, and the new administrator will oversee continued improvements in the coming years! Please involve yourselves in city business – it only works well when people pay attention and voice their opinions!

City Administrator’s Notes - June 2013

It looks like summer has arrived and there’s a fair bit of activity in our town.

We are busy hiring a new Public Works Field Supervisor and a new City Clerk / Treasurer / Administrator – the lead position for our public works crew and the city’s chief operations officer. With the new people will come both the standard hiccups as we get them trained and the new opportunities as we take advantage of new talents!

From the Mayor's Desk - June 2013

As a longtime baseball fan, I always enjoyed hearing Harry Caray say, “Holy Cow!” And I shared that same sense of excitement and joy when I realized Gorge Days is only about a month away!

We are super excited to have Johnny Limbo & the Lugnuts back again. They will be performing a free concert from 4pm to 6pm to wrap things up Saturday night, but don’t miss out on any of the other fun, educational and/or  stimulating events going on Friday, July 5th and Saturday, July 6th.
