Winlock continues to see turmoil as the Winlock City Council clashes with the Mayor of Winlock, Don Bradshaw.
Winlock City Council members called a Special Meeting on December 4, 2018, at 1:00 p.m. On the agenda was a Motion to Terminate Hillier, Scheibmeir and Kelly, PS, attorneys for the City of Winlock. Other items on the agenda was a moratorium on all spending, termination of litigation against Toledo and cancellation of the budget workshop that was scheduled for December 6. Mayor Bradshaw was not in attendance due to a previous meeting.
A dine-in dinner was held on December 4 from 4:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. at Toledo High School in the commons, hosted by FCCLA. It was a proclamation for Family and Consumer Science Day, and the event is meant to pull families together for visitation and conversations while enjoying a meal.
The Town Crier received a letter of resignation from Landon Johnson, a member of the Winlock Planning Commission. In the letter he pointed out that it appears as though there are no plans for improvements of the downtown core.
The letter begins with "while I have enjoyed the conversations we have had, and I respect your ability to accomplish a wide variety of vital tasks in short order. I do not agree with the overall direction the City has prescribed."
On November 26, 2018, at the regular scheduled Winlock City Council meeting, Mayor Don Bradshaw walked out of the meeting over the amendments to the agenda which included adding back in public comments. City Hall had removed the ability for the public to comment. The tension came from a variance granted to Desarno's Treasures at the previous Winlock City Council meeting. At that meeting, Desarno's Treasures was given 14 days to pay to have her water meter connected or her building would be red tagged and she would not have been allowed to enter to retrieve her goods.
On November 31 anticipation filled the Napavine football players on their bus ride to the Tacoma Dome. Their worthy rival, Kalama would be a tough team to play.
