New Enloe Dam study something to think about
- At the risk of rubbing everyone the wrong way, let’s just say the new Enloe Dam analysis (see front page) sponsored by several conservation groups is “interesting.”
OROVILLE – Several conservation groups are calling Okanogan County PUD’s attempts at re-starting hydroelectric power generation at Enloe Dam a money losing proposition – now and in the future.
OROVILLE – The Martin Luther King Jr. Assembly at Oroville High School last Friday celebrated more than the man or even civil rights, it also delved into the history of women and the vote, as well as all voter’s rights.
OROVILLE – The Oroville Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) brought together school board members, staff and the community at a special Town Hall meeting last week to discuss issues involving the Oroville School District.
TONASKET – The Tonasket School Board prepared to distribute information on the upcoming replacement levy election even as they worked to cope with uncertainty regarding the level of district’s future Levy Equalization Act funding.
OROVILLE – Oroville Mayor Chuck Spieth reappointed department heads and the city council approved them at their Tuesday, Jan. 3 meeting, their first meeting of 2012.
OROVILLE – Ted Murray and Sharon McKinzie with the Okanogan County Planning office came to Oroville last week to discuss the county’s efforts to update the Comprehensive Recreation Plan and the results of an online public survey.
“The state and federal governments require an update every six years for the county to maintain grant eligibility,” said Ted Murray, Outdoor Recreation Coordinator for Okanogan County. “This doesn’t just help the county… the city can draw off it as well.”
Turnout for the Okanogan County Recreation Plan meeting last Wednesday in Oroville was rather disappointing. However, the information gathered in the recreation survey was very interesting from many perspectives.
