The City of Raymond has been awarded a grant to not just replace, but also install a sidewalk on Park Ave., giving safer access to Lions Park in the Riverdale area.
Raymond Public Works Director Eric Weiberg explained that the city put in for several grants and was fortunate enough to be awarded this one. Each grant has certain criteria that must be met in order to be put in for consideration.
State shellfish managers have tentatively scheduled razor clam digs through April on four ocean beaches.
Final approval of all scheduled openings at Copalis, Mocrocks, Long Beach and Twin Harbors beaches will depend on whether results of marine toxin tests show the clams are safe to eat.
