TONASKET – Tonasket Mayor Patrick Plumb had agreed to it.
He just didn’t know that Tonasket Water Ranch coordinator Linda Black had already surpassed the $50,000 mark in fundraising for the spray park slated to be built in Chief Tonasket Park this summer.
So while he was surprised that this was the night that he would be sprayed down by a Tonasket Fire Department truck, the mayor gamely got wet, multiple times, via squirt guns, water cans and, of course, the fire truck.
The proceedings were witnessed by a crowd that was gathered for a City Council meeting discussion on a proposed ATV ordinance, as well as other community members involved with the water ranch project.
The project is expected to cost between $150,000 and $200,000.
