TONASKET – After a short public comment period about whether or not to join the Okanogan County Conservation District, the Tonasket Council decided to postpone their decision until their Sept. 13 meeting.
The city had scheduled a discussion period on the issue of joining the conservation district before the regular council meeting. Some of the more vocal comments were against joining because membership would mean a fee to property owners of $2.40 for each parcel owned. Bob Clark with the conservation district was also on hand to answer questions.
“There’s no big push for this,” said Councilwoman Jean E. Ramsey at the council’s regular Tuesday, Aug. 9 meeting.
