Spilling into the street, the Winlock City Council meeting on August 28 ended with contention over the ownership of the Olequa Senior Center. There are several events that occurred which have upset the seniors and volunteers at the center. The City Council started to discuss the senior center on record in their July 24 meeting and has continued since that date.
