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."
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.
The hot topic at the December 3 Raymond City Council Meeting ended up being Ordinance 1883 which would changed the rules in the city regarding RV parks and campground use. Currently RV and camp users are allowed to only stay 30 days in a 6-month-period but has been unenforced. The commission has recommended allowing up to 90 days along with stipulations for new parks or campgrounds.
The ordinance was designed to meet the regulations of the Pacific County Health Department Ordinance #5 that provides regulations to safeguard public health for RV parks and campgrounds.
The South Bend Library has endured a hard year after being closed in August and then Timberland Regional Library proposed the consolidation between South Bend and Raymond Library in their "Capital Facilities Plan." A number of libraries were proposed for closure and consolidation as part of the plan, but residents and their respective cities would have none of it.
As first reported in September, Timberland officials came to a City of South Bend City Council Meeting to update the city and residents regarding the state of the library. They made it clear to everyone in attendance they had no plan to close the library and we're exploring options. Four days later, Timberland released the proposed plan and it contradicted much of the statements officials had previously said.
