Inslee issues housing stability "bridge" proclamation
Gov. Jay Inslee last Tuesday (July 29) issued a housing stability 'bridge' emergency order, proclamation 21-09, intended to bridge the operational gap between the eviction moratorium (expired at 11:59 PM June 30) enacted by prior proclamations and the protections and programs subsequently enacted by the Legislature. The bridge, which was initially announced last week, will also reduce uncertainty as the state implements post-COVID long-term housing recovery strategies contained in legislative enactments such as SB 5160.
"COVID has created a significant economic impact on our state and many Washingtonians are still experiencing financial hardships. This bridge creates reasonable steps that will help ensure that renters have the opportunity to receive support and resources available to them and that the Legislature intended to be in place to help both landlords and tenants," Inslee said.

We have recently seen many comments on Facebook about what is happening with the Lewis County Senior Centers and their opening in the near future.
A new program designed to help students that have fallen behind in their educational progress has been implemented by Raymond School District.
Directing the program is Raymond HS Principal Dave Vetter in the new position as Raymond School District Secondary Intervention Teacher (SIT).
Vetter has been with the Raymond School District for 18 years. He started as a kindergarten teacher, spent four years teaching fourth graders, four years as the junior high English teacher, and the past nine years as the junior/senior high principal.
On a bright and sunny afternoon, the Joint Pacific County Housing Authority held a historic groundbreaking ceremony. On Thursday, June 24, 2021, at noon a small crowd gathered in the park beside the Raymond Fire Station on Third St. for the long-awaited groundbreaking of the Willapa Center.
The center is designed to be a 3-story affordable housing complex, Early Childhood Education Assistance Program site, and non-profit offices located in downtown Raymond.
This project is intended to take the place of the Willapa Hotel, which was lost in a fire on November 5, 1998. The new center will sit on the same site as the hotel did.
