Goldendale City Council Update 9/17

Goldendale City Council met last night for a relatively routine session. Councilors easily approved the appointment of three members of the city council to a new temporary Urban Wildlife Committee and agreed to allow water service out of town as part of a deal allowing an easement for a water pipeline. As part of the deal, the property will be annexed into the city. One of the brighter moments came as Police Chief Reggie Bartkowski announced a strong turnout by Goldendale Police for the Pig Bowl this weekend in The Dalles.
